Found 19th Jan 2009Made hot 19th Jan 2009
Just been to my local tesco (cheetham hill, manchester) when i saw stacks of 20l containers of vegetable oil. it had £15 on the box so i picked one up. i saw a lady walked passed with 3 and she said what a great price it was £7.50 so i went back to the pile and there was a sign saying was £15, now £7.50 so i got 2 more so i have 60 litres for £22.50.
dont know if online or nationwide but definitely £7.50 for 20 litres in my tesco.

Anyone intending to use this in their car - remember you will destroy your engine or oys components if your car is unsuitable.

Do some research first.

will it go in any diesel car???

lots will run on it. my 1996 golf has done for about 4 years with no problems. Do a search on google.

Certainly cheaper than pump diesel. Must be useful for cars only because I see no other use for it except for maybe greasing up wrestlers.

Am I calculating the the per litre price right at 37.5p ? Must be hot as a fuel.

Seriously how tight do you have to be to run your car on this/??? HOT for the price n effort. Well done

Serious hat on

My nans OH told me about this but it is illegal to use more than a certain amout of this and you will get yer car scrapped for not paying fuel duty!!! TAKE NOTE

why not run your car on it if you can. I mean, are you happy to give the Govt all that duty for the privilege to be stuck in a traffic jam. If my car would take it, i'd be filling er up !

2,500 miles a year to be precise (and you no longer need to keep a record of what you use):whistling:

I used to run my Pajero on straight veggie oil till the price per litre got more than fuel.

try this for a good read if you are unsure.:thumbsup:

it clogs up ur filters more doesnt it? so u would need to replace them more regulary

no it burns better than diesel so you have to change ur filter after the first 300miles then u should be fine just pulls the rubbish up to begin with (rubbish 1 handed typin soz lol)

Make sure you do your research about if you car will run on this before trying it, some are fine some are not. Don't just chance it, seriously. :thumbsup:

The garage I work in has handed out a couple of large bills before where people started using vegoil and it was ok for the first thousand miles or so before the diesel pump exploded resulting in a bill of a couple of thousand to get their car back on the road!

Good luck i'm a petrol head

there is nothing illegal now in using Biodiesel as long as you don't sell it or do a specifially high mileage (not sure of the figure but most wont do that with biodiesel)

2500 litres a year, that's 10k miles even if you can only manage 40mpg. Hot for me, been using upto 50% veg & diesel mix (25% veg max in winter) for years now though veg has been too expensive for months now.
Don't assume your car will run on veg, many newer engines will not take veg. My '54 Focus actually seems smoother on veg mix.

my 08 Touran has a big sticker in the fuel cap saying no bio-diesel blomin germans!!

I thought that there was a problem with using vegetable oil as fuel as it contains glycerol which clogs up the engine.

whats the address of the store in cheetham hill? I cant find it anywhere

thanks

gemmar26;4123967

Thanks for the reply potnoodle! KTC 20L for 7.98 is a bargain!

Are you sure its 20l and not 10l? My Costco sells 20 for £15.50 / 77p a litre.

My ZX 1.9d runs perfectly on this!

abomb1969;4124128

Agreed, the old Peugeot/Citroen XUD (NOT the HDi) engine tends to be good for running on vegetable oil, provided it has a Bosch fuel pump. DO do your research first though, don't just chuck it in.

Anyone know what sort of oil this is?

Its Not available anywhere, false deal!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

2,500litres of veg oil at 45mpg or 10 miles per litre works out to about 25,000miles!

Could still save about 60% of fuel costs if you could get enough of this.

Newer high pressure common rail cars don't run as well on higher concentrations of veg oil, like my Zafira 1.9 CDTI (runs like a bag of spanners on 50% of bio diesel) especially when it is colder, so start off lower and build up, and as mentioned replace the fuel filter after a couple of tanks.

I am glad that some people have responded to the silly comments about it being illegal, it was legalised years ago......please check "bio fuel providers" on the net for any die hard doubters. All you have to do is register and keep a log of how many miles and how much oil and as long as it is for personal use no tax is payable.......see earlier threads. Before it was legal I often came across very aromatic, chippy smelling cars on my travels, it always made me smile.....now that it is legal I don't seem to smell them so much, perhaps my nose has dulled or the novelty worn off for some!

Good.

What sort of life must the vegetables have had if 20 litres of their oil was only worth £7.50. I would vote cold (if I knew how to).

No - only IDI (indirect injection) engines with Bosch, Bosch clone (such as Nippon Denso) or Mercedes inline pumps - NEVER even try it in a car with a Lucas or Rotodiesel pump.

Its green not tight - and its better FOR THE CARS THAT CAN RUN ON IT than using diesel.

The limit is 2500 litres per year - which strangely they cannot really check. It is 'policed' by HMR&C.

Not really - that is when you are using biodiesel which acts as a solvent and cleans the system - resulting in all types being brought round to the filter. However ITS IN YOUR CAR'S INTERESTS TO CHANGE THE FILTERS MORE THAN SPECFIED - and they are only a few quid of bought in bulk so you can change them at each service (I service our vegemobiles at every 4000 miles - and change both oil and fuel filters - its £7 in total for both filters when bought in bulk).

You must only use pumps made by Bosch (or its japanese clones) or Mercedes inline pumps.

You can swap many cars Lucas pumps (and injectors) for under £100 quid and an afternoons work.

IF YOUR CAR IS SUITABLE - the diesel clatter noise stops and the car will almost sound like a petrol car - they also seem smoother as the little misfires you feel on diesel disappear.

Your calculation is lousy though - it should be about 24000 miles a year at about 40mpg·

Vegetable oil is a triglyceride, which does not really contain glycerol - but when vegetable oil is converted to biodiesel by a process known as transesterification - glycerol/clycerine is the waste product.

I was also under the impression that not all Bosch diesel pumps are a go, especially the vp44 family as they were not a very good design and a bit weak so don't like anything outside the tolerance they were designed for.

Of course, I don't have a diesel (and wouldn't want one with a vp44 anyway) so I'm not 100% certain, just a heads up to anyone who thinks you can slap this straight in your tank.
