    It's been the same at our local Morrisons ever since they installed the Bio Diesel pumps. Whilst they are being greedy they can keep it.

    Hi, If I was able to get Bio Diesel a bit cheaper than your ordinary diesel, could I just put it into the van like the ordinary diesel and drive away or do you need to have modifications made to the engine first. Regards and thanks for replies - decmac

    type bio diesel in search i will try an dfind the site that gives companies who sell it ,i am lucky nearest is 7 mile away;
    as for running it most dont have to be remapped,but it is best if you going to run Bio to change fuel filters and any rubber hoses as bio will clean the wax residue out of the lines and this is where it builds up,they do say you can do a mix of norm and bio,and run at least one tank of bio with no probs,suggest you ask your local dealer if any forseen probs,but i will be looking at running Bio,mainly because of the cost

    Contact fiat and ask them easiest solution :thumb: a few of the newer engines may need a tweak to stop it pinking ,but a lot of the older engines [non electric inj] ie ancient land rover will run and basic any oil for fuel, a guy i know waits for Lidl or Aldi to have an Oil sale and grabs lots of it :RollEyes:
