The cheapest is Tesco, you can get it for 30p a lt. But you have to buy a pallet of 2 lt bottles so unless you have a really big garage not really an option. . .
#2
Is that the tesco BOGOF offer from last month? Or a new offer?
I ordered a load of the those 3 litres from the BOGOF deal but Tesco never turned up with them. Luckily I had the sense to buy some instore aswell.

If you have a diesel car (check how suitable your car model is by googling or by posting what your car is in this thread) basically if you have an 80s, 90s diesel then theres a good chance youll be ok running on veg oil or veg oil diesel mix. My car has a 1.9 SDi VW engine, this engine is found in VW, Seat, Skoda cars and is very suitable for veg oil as it isnt to advanced, no fancy turbos and it has a bosch fuel pump and bosch injectors to my knowledge which are the best for veg oil usage.

Or if your serious about doing it and you dont have a diesel then get yourself a cheap diesel used car such as a Mercedes 300D which can be had for £500 and are very good for running on veg oil. There are many different ways people use veg oil in cars,

1.some just buy veg oil like this and pour it into their car fuel tank and put abit of diesel in as well, 2.some get the veg oil and mix it with white spirit to make it thinner,
3.some mix it with abit of petrol to make it thinner,

4.some people properly convert it into bio diesel by mixing caustic soda and methanol with slightly heated vegetable oil and then waiting a few days or a week for the caustic soda and methanol to separate the glycerine from the veg oil which then sinks to the bottom of the container and the glycerine free good stuff is on the top which you then drain out and put in your car.

Some people use used vegetable oil that can be collected for free from local restaurant and take aways, of course to use used stuff you need to filter all the rubbish out of it that has collected when food has been fried in it.

1.Some people use simple methods of filtration such as several layers of T shirts/cloth and then pour it into a container

2. Some people have complicated filtration systems with electric pumps and special filters that can filter down to so many microns etc.

With used oil its the same methods of use as SVO (straight veg oil),people have many different ideas on how to use it.

Then you also have companies that you pay to fit a special system to your vehicle, one of these systems consists of having a separate heated tank fitted in your car boot which you can put unmolested Veg oil into, you car then starts on real diesel but after a certain point you can flick a switch and it will switch over to the heated and therefore thin and ready veg oil. And then before you turn your car off you switch back to diesel so it is only diesel in your fuel lines/injectors. These systems can be expensive and not strictly necessary unless you want minimal fuss and peace of mind for cold weather use.

Google is you friend, everything ive talking about is found on youtube. Dont let the information overload put you off. It might well be very simple indeed for you.

For many people like myself, we just buy some new fresh veg oil and then mix it with abit of petrol, white spirit or diesel and then off we go cheap motoring.

Or if you want to have a try with some professionally created bio diesel (which is usually a mix of 20% diesel and 80% properly converted bio diesel then go to http://www.lpgmap.co.uk/map.php

and enter you town or postcode, select the bio diesel box and unselect the LPG box and then click find. Any bio diesel stations or suppliers will show up on the map as purple balloons. If you cant see any near you then use the zoom out - and + buttons and use the cursor to move the map around until you spot your nearest purple balloon.

But some advice would be to try and contact the bio diesel supplier by phone first to see if they still exist and if they still sell bio diesel as many seem to stop stocking/making and I dont know how upto date that database is.

Anyway hopefully that has answered most questions

If you approach the store manager they'll sell you a palette of the 2 lt bottles (If you can transport them). It works out at around 30p a lt.

My lad runs his VW transporter on it, it's a tip on the VW forums.

We went down there and came back with 100 bottles, great offer. Can't see they made a lot from it !

Its the 3 lt bottles that were on offer a few weeks back (2 for 1). I thought it was a 2 lt, but I've just checked a bottle and its 3, sorry...

All you do is ask the manager. If he's got spare stock he'll sell you a palette. BUT you have to be able to shift it. They won't let you clog up their loading bay while you break it down in cars (it won't all fit in a single car any way and its too heavy for an estate I'm told).

Look on some of the VW forums if you want more info (I'd post you a link, but its my lads area and he's not around this week).

I just went to Scotland yesterday and I poured all my KTC oil into the tank and it already had abit of diesel. Drove flawlessly and I covered about 600miles. By the way I recommend buying the redex diesel additive that is on sale at Tesco for £1.80 as its handy for keeping your injectors clean. Or if you cant get it there are similar things made by millers etc

Would it be ok to put veg oil in a 2002 VW Golf 150 PD?
#13
PD engines are meant to be abit more fussy and not tolerate high percentages of veg oil, but I remeber on the Briskoda forums that plenty of people have been putting like 30-40% veg oil and diesel mixes in their Skodas that have the same VW PD engine like yours and they said it was fine.

I think you need to read about on the VW/Skoda/SEAT/Audi Forums and see what peoples experience has been. But yeah it is possible.
