I was in Dales Liverpool (now owned by the Chinese) yesterday buying fish. Rapeseed oil was at an all time low. I wonder what the reason is for the price drop.
Having run on bio for years, the only diesel vehicles I now have are the Hymer and my pickup truck. Neither does enough miles to warrant making or storing bio nowadays.

I reckon there was a sudden run on the crop Dave.
The farmer near us planted in the fields behind and to the side of us for the first time.... And his :swear2: pyrotechnic bird scares... As far as we could see, and that's a long way up the Vale of pickering, the fields were yellow by early summer

Years ago it used to be the same with spuds in Cheshire. One year there would be a bumper crop and prices would drop, the next year no one planted spuds and the price went through the roof.

For anyone still running on cooking oil, farmfoods are currently selling 20ltrs (2 x 10ltr) pure veg oil at £16.


Noticed that in our local FF thought about getting some .and doing a 50/50 mix.
But like others not doing the milage to warrant it .
And the last time I used full bio it ate an injector seal on a grand espace and what a :swear2:bitch getting at it
