Netto has a special offer for Veg Oil this Saturday and Sunday just £0.69 a liter.

With most shop selling it for £0.95+ this is not to be missed.

Tesco cheapest was £1.07 a bottle.

Great price for this Veg Oil ( Diesel )

Best of luck be quick as lots of people will go on Saturday to stock up for the year.

I just open the the lid to the tank and put the veg Oil in. I drive a Toyota Lucida ( 7 seater estima) I checked online to see if others are driving my type of car on Veg and lots of people do without any problems.
I started with 30% veg 70% diesel and now it is warm weather drive on 100% veg oil. When it gets colder again I will put more Diesel in the tank.
I still have a lot of bookers £0.55 a liter bottles to last me a couple of months and hope the prices will come down again after that time but if not £0.69 is the cheapest at the moment.

Check online for more details on the car you drive to see if you can use it. Also you are aloud to use 2500liter a year without having to pay tax on it.
Thanks,

Dont use it in HDI/CDI etc (common rail) diesel engines as you can destroy your engine even at fairly low percentages. If can also entirely confuse the electrics on most post 2000 diesels.

Using it in DI (Direct Injection) carries the risk that not all the oil will burn - leaving a little to run into the sump after mixing with the engine oil. Vegetable oil does not offer the protection to your engine that engine oil does, and you risk destroying your engine, as the percentage of vegetable oil increases.

Don't use it on cars with Lucas/Roto Diesel/CAV injection pumps - as they use the diesel to lubricate the pump - and the vegetabe oil is too think for the tolerances of the pump. You can however install as second fuel system and a 'Pollack Valve' that switches between tanks - so you can start up on diesel - then switch to vegetable oil when the heat in your engine will thin the vegetable oil to a viscosity close to diesel.

Many IDI (indierect injection) engines with inline injection pumps, or most Bosch pumps if in good condition and with a system to heat the vegetable oil will happily run on 100%

When its cold weather - add some petrol to the vegetable oil which will let it start better without making the car judder so much. - Dont go over about 15% of vegetable oil - as this can let the petrol in the fuel vapourise and cause airlocks.

Any questions anyone?

HMRC are not nice to deal with when you get pulled because your car smells like a chip shop. I know someone who got caught, cost them thousands.

It's now legal to use upto 2,500 litres of this sort of fuel, per year.

Sorry I'd forgotten! Did consider it, but a little worried about using it in a common rail engine, don't fancy a bill of 1K for a high pressure pump, or a set of injectors!
