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!)

Can I use Biodiesel?
The answer to this question is YES you can.
IF IT RUNS ON DIESEL IT RUNS BETTER ON
• 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
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.
