COSTCO IS SELLING KTC CUBES FOR £15.59 FOR 20 LITRES OF SOYA OIL

Although not as good as rapeseed oil, soya oil is one of the most common oils used to fuel suitable diesels.

The 20 litre containers are far easier to store n pour than smaller bottles.

Whilst most cars pre 2000 with indirect injection (IDI) will run on vegetable oil fine, PLEASE check that your model will take it first, because it could cause serious damage if not suitable.

Vehicles after 2000, tend to be CDi, TDi, PDDI, TDCi, etc. which are common rail diesels, and vegetable oil is a big no no.

remember, if you wanna be legal, you still need to pay duty etc on top. (currently 48.3p a litre)
#2
Great deal but not brave enough to use in my car. Also best to remember to mix it 50% with diesel in the winter so it doesn't freeze.

There is an exemption on duty for the first 2500 litres - and this has been so for roughly a year and a half.

10% petrol will do the same and cost far less.

I am telling you if you have a car that you know runs well on vegetable oil - then adding petrol is a better way of thinning the oil in winter.

If you check the manual - most diesel cars will say 10% can be added to stop the fuel freezing, Adding any more than about 15% can start vapour locks forming.

H+R from me, and i think its worth pointing out to diesel owners that the original fuel used by diesel engines was in fact peanut oil. so veg oil is fine;so long as you mix it with diesel from the pump,(or the tractor if possible):w00t::thumbsup:
#12
good price /litre as diesel doesnt seem to be coming down what car do you put it in - and dont say a diesel :p

ps dont ever use red diesel - unless you want the customs and excise men to take your car off you - never mess with the tax men

I have been running my van on veg oil/petrol/diesel combinations for 4 years and its great. VW do sell them ready to run on oil though!
#14
Mostly older cars that can use veg oil. Have to do your own research though. Its no good saying "Alan off Hotukdeals said I could use it, so why have you invalidated my warranty?". I've got an old Toyota 4x4 ran it on 100% veg oil all summer

#16
Your car might run fine on veg oil for a while but it can perish the rubbers on your fuel system a lot faster than diesel resulting in huge bills further down the line, diesel fuel pumps and injectors changed at a main dealer can cost £2000 + . make sure you do your homework first.:thumbsup:

#22
May be good as a fuel but I wouldn't buy it for cooking as this is made of GM (Genetically Modified) soya.

Mix petrol with diesel? If your car engine can take it then do go ahead and wish you luck!!! The last time I heard of a diesel car contaminated with petrol, it damaged the turbo charger in a BMW and lots of black smoke! Feel free to take the risk and hope you could get away without a penalty of a big repair bill!

Some shed some light on this I am only getting like 300 chips per litre.

from a tractor would be red which mean its illegal ;-) lol if a copper or vosa van pulled ya and used there dip things they would give u a hefty fine... trust me on that...
#26
lol bad deal voted cold...u can get it cheaper than this just not sure where......wouldn't put it in my hdi 2.0 turbo diesel lol....no way
#27
for those who don't have a clue, do some re-search its not that hard. then post once you know what you are on about.

done 40k miles on cooking oil so far, no issues what so ever - if adding petrol though make sure your adding it to the oil above 6 Deg C other wise it wont mix properly.

Ah, there's your problem - right there.

the exemption refers to 'production' of biodiesel, therefore arguably just putting svo into your car and not paying tax is illegal.

not if you do your research. the car and in particular the fuel system and fuel pump need to be compatible. as a starter if your fuel pump is bosch there are possibilities. if the pump is lucas, its not a good start.

do some resarch, here is a good starting point:- http://www.vegetableoildiesel.co.uk/forum

This will give you details on other peoples experiences with Veggie Oil. I drive a Toyota Estima Emina and it runs on near 100% in the summer. At the mo, I am running on 75% veg and the rest diesel. Its all about your fuel pump and the injection system. Generally speaking, if its a fairly old diesel car and it has a Bosch or Nippon pump, then you should be fine. Check the database above for info on your particular model.

there's always one isnt there, thanks for being constructive :x

as for those that want to try this, go here: http://www.bio-power.co.uk/tryit.htm and read the how to check if my car will run of vegi article.


As a reference most diesel vw's upto year 2000 should run ok between a 30/70 50/50 mix (depending on weather) but dont take my word for it, test it and see.

I've been running vegi oil in my 2000 polo 1.9 tdi (non pd)for about 4000 miles, with no mods and no problem. I'd suggest ading injector cleaner once a month and running a full tank of diesel once a month to flush it..

You need to make sure your car is compatable though so do some research first!

YES VAT FREE - NOT DUTY FREE , VAT IS 17.5%

http://www.hmrc.gov.uk/budget2007/bn53.htm

to make it cost effective you need to get the oil for less than 40p per litre as it costs about 10p in costs to make the stuff + fuel duty

They used to mix a small amount of petrol with diesel years ago to stop it waxing in freezing weather, but diesel does'nt need it nowadays,Be very carefull what car you put it in it could ruin your engine.
