Got an old diesel car that can run on veggie oil?

You are laughing now with this deal. 20 litres for only £14.09!

Thats 70p per litre. 40p per litre cheaper than diesel at the pumps!

Don't just bung it in if you don't know your car can take it.

do that first, then lob it in yer tank.:thumbsup:

mix the oil with petrol tho or you can pop seals on injector pump!! most diesel cars with bosch pump are ok before year 2000 manufacture.i usually mix it abt 15 to 1 but you will notice a small reduction in performance

I run an Toyota Estima and run it on 90% Veg/Diesel in the summer and 50/50 in the winter. No mods, no hassle. Runs smoother, and gives equiv, if not better performance. If you have one of these cars, its a no brainer.

LOl You don't need to cook it first to get that smell.:lol:

I'm a chef & we give it back to suppliers.Is this Legal or banned like red diesel ?

hmmm interesting:thumbsup:

It's fully legal. You can use 2500l a year without declaring at all. That's enough for most people for a year.

Don't ever give it back to suppliers. If you can'r refine and use it, sell it. (I know someone who will buy it from you).

Explain, please.

This is a genuine request because I have been exploring using Vegetable Oil for quite a while. There is a lot of information overload on this but I cannot get a definitive answer, so your input would be useful if you have relevant information.

What car have you got? Check out the website in my previous link as it gives details of people running their vehicles on veggie and how the vehicles react.

Petrol is great for degreasing, diesel partly acts as a lubricant, doesnt take a lot of working out?
As someone whos worked for a bio diesel proccessing firm I have seen what waste products are produced form proccessing vegetable oil. Up to 20% of this is glycerin, a brown sludgy soap that when burnt leaves carbon deposits. If you use unrefined veg oil it will cause premature engine wear (que comments of "ive been using it for years" blah blah) as these deposits will stick to your valves etc, so some sort of decokeing will be needed.
As for mixing veg oil and petrol, thats just bloody stupid! :w00t:

So what your saying is it's not worth the Hassle using Veg oil ?

In winter time, unless you have a preheater installed, you will have very poor starting which will just load your starter motor and glow plug system (if it has 1) because @ 5 degrees veg oil starts to gel,if you run a cheap old banger then it may save you a few bob, anything modern especially common rail or high pressure pump diesels id give it a miss, including using biodiesel!

Thx for the heads-up

the glycerin comes from the animal fat left in the oil from cooking.nothing to do with proper veg oil,PS ALL fuels produce carbon deposits when burnt as a result of incomplete combustion take a quick look up any vehicles exhaust and see..And why is it stupid to mix petrol with the veg oil pray tell

I am lucky having a dad who is a mechanic (who specialises in diesels). After say 2000 miles of running on 70/30 veg/diesel we took the pump of and the filter out and they were as clean as a whistle with no undue stress on the pump. He had a few issues with his own 1996 Golf (with a Bosch pump), but the Nippon pump in my Estima has shown no problems. I have now covered best part of 20,000 miles using this mix, so the proof is in the pudding really.

this from a ****wit who puts petrol in a diesel engine?

as a european HGV owner/operator i used 5-10% petrol mix with diesel, as recommended by D.O.T, in sub zero temps, and have done since the early 1980s. it prevents the diesel chilling and thickening in the fuel lines while driving,thus causing breakdowns, and has no adverse effect whatsoever. DONT do it in the summer months.i have used clean veg oil at 10% in all weathers for years in my old peugeot pick-up, 227,000 miles. i dont claim to be this or that, just experienced, draw your own conclusions.

BTW. heat for the deal, great price.

Lets be sensible, your HGV trucks engine doesnt represent a modern diesel car ? And every one knows old peugeots run on muddy water? ;-) Adding small ratios of veg oil to derv is fine, just try running it on 70-100% in winter and then youll find things a different story. Im all for using alternative fuels but when monkeys on here start sprouting crap like you have to mix petrol with veg oil then I feel the need to put them right. I used to work for a bio diesel proccessing firm, that produces over 20000 litres a week, Im sure you can imagine all the nurds and characters we had in with there different mixes and blends that worked far better than what we produced? As for my comments about carbon build up, yes fossil fuels produce it to, but they also contain additives to clean the crap off too! I have personally had a CAT block up on my own van from using veg oil and Bio. Modern diesels are the worst things to use it in. The best results are with early VWs and skodas and also your peugeots as like I said, muddy water will do! :thumbsup:
