    You may find that you need to change the oil filter after a few hundred miles - it is quite common for oil to clean out the system so you get better performance but in doing so, the filter gets clogged.

    I've been running on about 20% veg oil for years - it made a noticeable improvement when I first started using it and when I increase the dose every so often - however, it does not like more than about 50% in our vehicle, especially when the weather is cold.
