Use it for frying chips if you want but I use it in my old Land Rover Discovery (300tdi) as diesel replacement. Some may run fully on veggy oil but I just tend to put say 15 lts in when tank is half full of proper diesel.
Engine runs fine with little noticable difference. Perhaps not quite as much pulling power when warming up but no problem for my type of driving. Less than 70p a litre compared with proper stuff at £1.15.
But beware. Not for your modern sophisticated diesel engines, BMW, Bentley, etc. But seems fine with many of the older models. Search the net if in doubt.

You have to be careful when doing this as it can destroy expensive bits on certain diesel cars, like th pump and injectors. Be sure to check online that someone else has run your car on veg oil and is safe to do.

66p a litre is great. My car runs on 80-90% in this warm weather!

So this wont work on my Bentley? Darn it. I had wished to save a few bob - the insurance is crippling.

I have been using bio-diesel for nearly a year now at £0.80p litre, The only time I needed to mix was last winter when it was bloomin freezing the rest of the time it's at 100% bio.
I have a vectra 2.0L Diesel, I seem to remember something about changing the fuel filter after so many miles but it's still performing fine (touch wood)
If I used this stuff would it need additives or mixing with diesel or is this when I will need to change my filters

In my experience, it's all down to how thick the veggie oil is. I mix it up with a bit of diesel in the winter and go down to 50% veggie!

Cheers Foxy, I may try that this winter if I run out of the stuff I am using at the minute, I ran out just after the snow hit and couldn't get to the farm with the roads so bad earlier this year, (had to buy proper diesel )but for now I think I will stick with the £0.80p stuff which is rapeseed oil based with some additives thrown in.

Using bio diesel is completely different to using veg oil. Most diesel cars will run on bio. Generally only older ones will run on veg oil. Check out somewhere like vegetableoildiesel.co.uk/for…php before trying it

^^^correct. You need to check it out before you do it. A lot of it comes down to what fuel pump you have and the age and type of fuel delivery system it has. Bosch and Nippon are good fuel pumps for veggie oil, but check it out first.

works for him!

I ran a 50/50 mix on my navarra for months without any problems. Until the fuel filter packed in. The rubber seals & mesh swelled up to block the filter. Replaced & discontinued use of veg oil. Keeping fingers crossed nothing else has been affected.

Ran my 98 mondeo for 21/2 years on 50/50 summer and winter no probs at all. Now have a petrol very expensive lol.

That customs link is carp - nothing to do with veg/bio diesel

Sounds fishy to me.

I understand that fresh vegetable oil with 5% or 6% white spirit works. I have also seen that top gear video using used filtered oil.

I run my Skoda Superb 2.5 TDI on 50/50 new veg oil and diesel with no issues. Good saving
