    I've considered it but have rejected the idea (rightly or wrongly) for two reasons.

    1. I cannot get a definitive answer from Cummins as to whether it has any long term damaging effects on the engine and or fuel pump which both depend on lubrication from the fuel.

    2. Most of our driving is in France and beyond where diesel is a lot cheaper.

    So on balance I don't feel it is worth the risk...

    Now, domestic heating oil (diesel by another name) .. different question .. but I know a few who run their cars on this and at 45p lt I can see the financial benefit but run the risk of being caught and fined heavily.. :Sad:

    Your main problem with Veg.Oil is if you have a Lucas CAV fuel pump. If you have, then don't even think about using Veg. Oil.
    Winter use? Get a proper heater in the fuel line and a heated fuel filter housing; they are about

    :RollEyes: I know quite a few that do too. I will NEVER use it on ANY of our vehicles. Perhaps I am too honest? :Sad:
