Of the ones I passed today in Teesside £119.9 to £124.9, why are we and the hauliers that protested before putting up with it, I keep expecting the French to to go on strike or riot but nothing it happening.

Cheapest in my area (Newcastle, Staffs) is Morrisons Supermarkets.

Wednesday 7th May........£1.17

Sunday 11th May............£1.19

Tuesday 13th May...........£1.20

Think about this.
In addition to the crazy amount of tax whacked on fuel sold in the UK, government also draws 17.5% vat off every drop of fuel. (And no.....the Tory bunch won't drop fuel tax either!)

Its a licence to print money and fatten up a nice early retirement 'pension fund'.......for some.:Angry:

Can I use Biodiesel?
The answer to this question is YES you can.
IF IT RUNS ON DIESEL IT RUNS BETTER ON
BIODIESEL!!
• Any diesel vehicle or diesel engine can run using biodiesel and NO
modification is required to modern day cars, vans or trucks (you can also use
biodiesel in boats, boilers, generators and heaters).
• Biodiesel will prolong the life of your engine as it is very lubricious and even
used in very low mix percentages it can reduce engine wear substantially.
• The transition is seamless; you simply use biodiesel as a replacement or in
addition to your standard fuel. It can be used in its pure form (B100) or
blended with fossil diesel in any percentage.
• The price you pay includes the applicable excise duty and VAT so you can
also rest assured you are driving perfectly legally.
There are a couple of points to note.
Biodiesel is very good at cleaning your engine and removing the build up of resins
and deposits that have built up with standard diesel usage so you may notice a
reduction in performance after driving 200 miles or so this is because the
biodiesel will have dissolved the resins and deposits in your fuel tank and fuel
pipes and deposited these in your fuel filter, all you need do is change your
filter (a very minor and inexpensive job) and you can now run on biodiesel for
ever more.
If your vehicle is very old i.e. over 13 years old and your fuel pipes are made of
rubber you will need to change these to modern polythene pipes to avoid the
rubber breaking down with the biodiesel use (all modern diesel vehicles have
polythene pipes fitted as standard).
If you revert to normal diesel use and then back to biodiesel you may need to
change your fuel filter again.

Environmental Benefits
Emissions
Biodiesel is the only alternative fuel to voluntarily perform EPA Tier I and Tier II testing to
quantify emission characteristics and health effects. That study found that B20 (20%
biodiesel blended with 80% conventional diesel fuel) reduced total hydrocarbons by
up to 30%, Carbon Monoxide up to 20%, and total particulate matter up to 15%.
Typically, emissions of nitrogen oxides are either slightly reduced or slightly increased
depending on the duty cycle of the engine and testing methods used. Increases in
NOx can be effectively eliminated with the use of normal mechanical remediation
techniques (e.g. catalysts or timing changes). Research also documents the fact that
the ozone forming potential of the hydrocarbon emissions of pure biodiesel is nearly
50% less than that of petroleum fuel. Pure biodiesel does not contain sulfur and
therefore reduces sulfur dioxide exhaust from diesel engines to virtually zero.
Biodiesel can also help meet national goals for the net reduction of atmospheric
carbon. As a renewable fuel derived from organic materials, biodiesel and blends of
biodiesel reduce the net amount of carbon dioxide in the biosphere. A study by the US
Department of Energy has found that biodiesel production and use, in comparison to
petroleum diesel, produces 78.5% less CO2 emissions. Carbon dioxide is “taken up” by
the annual production of crops such as soybeans and then released when vegetable
oil based biodiesel is combusted. This makes biodiesel the best technology currently
available for heavy-duty diesel applications to reduce atmospheric carbon.
Health Effects
Biodiesel is safer for people to breathe. Research conducted in the US shows biodiesel
emissions have decreased levels of all target polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH)
and nitrited PAH compounds, as compared to petroleum diesel exhaust. PAH and
nPAH compounds have been identified as potential cancer causing compounds.
Targeted PAH compounds were reduced by 75 to 85 percent, with the exception of
benzo(a)anthracene, which was reduced by roughly 50 percent. Target nPAH
compounds were also reduced dramatically with biodiesel fuel, with 2-nitrofluorene
and 1-nitropyrene reduced by 90 percent, and the rest of the nPAH compounds
reduced to only trace levels. All of these reductions are due to the fact the biodiesel
fuel contains no aromatic compounds.
Energy Balance
Biodiesel helps preserve and protect natural resources. For every one unit of energy
needed to produce biodiesel, 3.24 units of energy are gained. This is the highest
energy balance of any fuel. Because of this high energy balance and since it is
domestically produced, biodiesel use can greatly contribute to domestic energy
security.
Biodegradability and Toxicity
Environmental Benefits
Biodiesel is nontoxic and biodegradable. Tests sponsored by the United States
Department of Agriculture confirm that biodiesel is ten times less toxic than table salt
and biodegrades as fast as dextrose (a test sugar).

£1.50/litre by Christmas was the figure I saw being banded about.:Eeek:

Been watching it every night passing the garage.

Never stays the same.Someone, somewhere is making an awful lot of money out of this and laughing their way to the Bank.

Do they have Banks in the Arab Republic?

I will lay odds on £2.00 per litre or an all out war.

Second thoughts, its Britain isnt it so forget the all out war and make it £3.00 per Litre by Christmas 2008.

Agree with you on first point........and yes you are right about your 'second thought'!

Lets just hope the good book is right when it says "the meek shall inherit the earth"!! (or whats left of it).
