From the Indian & Asian Groceries shelf

I believe that this is a bit of a deal for those people that feed their diesel cars with veggie oil (LPG for me).

buy in bulk and add vouchers possibly for even cheaper fatty food/miles in the oil burner.

If the Tesco where you get deliveries from does not have a Indian & Asian Groceries section then it won't appear for you to purchase.

10 Litres! That's like... 714Kg of chips in the Actifry! :-D



Sorry to go off topic a bit but, are the Actifry machines any good. I love chips ( who dosen't) but a hundred quid for diet chips seems a bit rich to me. Are they worth it or should i just stick to the oven ones?

Mine has an Asian section. But none of the 10l. Can anyone clarify this.

Yes, but not new diesel engines. This website... vegetableoildiesel.co.uk/fue…php lists all the ones that work OK.

wow i didn't know that! shame my cars not on the list! - thanks.

Even in newer cars a litre or 3 will do no harm to the engine and you really wouldn't notice the difference.

So 47lites @1.20 = £56.40
3 litres of veg oil = £2.40
Total saving 1.20p per tank with this, or a free litre of fuel per tankful.

Yeah it's great with the right chips. We use Maris Pipers, I would avoid "White Potatoes", they come out brown and soggy whereas Maris Pipers, King Edwards and Desirees (I just lifted my potato patch :)) all come out a nice crispy yellow with a lovely taste. Probably the best chips I've cooked in the home and it uses a considerably less amount of electricity than the over. Both take about 40 minutes but the actifry uses 1.4KwH and the oven (mine anyway) uses about 8KwH!

It can cook pretty much anything that goes in the oven and won't break apart, 8 Sausages take about 14 minutes in the actifry and have a lovely colour... I need to try out chicken drumsticks :-D

Isn't it illegal to put it in the car without paying the tax on it?

Your are allowed 2500 litres a year tax free. How the hell they will work that out is beyond me!

Original Poster

I believe that there is a tax/duty exemption up to 2500 litres per year when running on veg oils/bio diesel.
Anything more than that, the individual is resposible for declaring and paying duty.

Whats so special about 'Indian' oil.

Is it any different to the normal oil sold in Tescos?

Benjimoron;2842265

As long as you don't use more than 2500 litres a year, you don't have to pay duty on it:

Tax on Vegetable OilThe tax or fuel duty you have to pay on Vegetable Oil … Tax on Vegetable OilThe tax or fuel duty you have to pay on Vegetable Oil when burnt in your car varies from country to country. In the UK the law has changed several times in the last few years. Prior to 2005 you had to register the fuel and pay 28.35p per litre of vegetable oil used, then in 2005 it was changed to 48.35p/litre which is the standard fuel duty to pay on Diesel. Then in 2006 it was changed again so that there was an exemptio on using less than 2500litres per year, anything after that and you have to pay the 48.35p/litre. To put this in context that is around 40 tanks of fuel for an average car of 60 litres. For average driving this would take you around 8000miles. Given that if you use over 2500 litres of vegetable oil a year you need to register and pay full duty on the fuel you may be better off diluting the oil down with Diesel or simply only using the Vegetable Oil in the summer months.

Biofules are evil, they p*ss in the face of those in poverty and hunger. How can we be so self reightous about being "green" by burning food when the food itself, sent as aid, would be thousands of times more effective for fighting poverty than the small amount of CO2 saved using "biofuels".

I must admit, it does seem a bit wasteful when I load my people carrier up with 60litres of perfectly good veggie oil.

If only the government weren't such a*seholes.

I would say neither, he's speaking the facts, 'growing' fuel has not been thought out properly and Gordon Brown's plan to introduce such fuel into all our tanks will go down in history as a major part of his downfall.

Then put your money where you mouth is. £10 PayPal says that within ten days of Gordon Brown leaving Number 10, not one article on the website of a major UK news provider gives 'plans to introduce/subsidise/reduce the cost of bio fuel' as a 'major part of his downfall'

In fact, I'll be generous - I drop the need for it to be listed as a 'major' part of his downfall.

Take the bet, find the article in a year or so's time, then PM me. I'll pay you. Otherwise, you pay me.

I'm in two minds whether to buy one as i've entered a compo to win one of 100, but the draw isn't until january 2009:x Have you tried the "rooster " potatoes. I swear by them when i indulge and make gratain dauphinnose. ( apoligies for spelling)

Biofuels aren't really sustainable in the long term. The sudden rush to grow crops for fuel instead of food is genuinely starving some countries because of demand from the economically developed nations to reduce their carbon footprint. You only have to look at the price of wheat/grain/maize over the last few years to see what effect biofuel crops have had. It doesn't make sense to me to save carbon emissions by starving small nations, but nobody's asking me lol.

It's a shame really, because it's a fairly clean way of burning fuel, but just not a long-term feasible option.

Global warming is bollox, who cares if the world temperature goes up a few degrees over the next 100 years. Wow we will need to build some sea defenses. Big deal.

Instead we burn food to move our 1.5 tonne cars to go to tesco and buy food to eat while children around the world die slow painful deaths from hunger.

I don't buy that global warming will be the end of the world but I am ashamed that we burn food to move cars around while people starve.

Life cycle analyses (a way of looking at the CO2 emissions from "cradle to grave") suggest that it is not actually as good as it was first hoped in terms of saving CO2 emissions. That is long before one considers the food crisis it is causing.

thats why the price shot up :x

Yeah just to 'chip' in.

Biofuels is a distraction.

If global warming was so bad you would buy a bike or walk, and stop contributing to the culpable decrease of crops being grown for food. The government will eventually change peoples behaviour like they always do anyway, by criminalising or taxing biofuel.

I would prefer to take the £10 paypal bet over the next ten-twenty years, regarding whether the c02 hysteria has died down, and the planet still exists?
