    I'm hearing you. Would still love to know if anyone is using it.
    Maybe a 75% Mix etc etc.

    I'm currently on my 2nd tank of Bio-diesel from www.enfuels.co.uk based in Thatcham ( Current client is in Newbury ).

    Certainly noticed the engine 'seams' to run a lot quieter, no smoke at all. I'm getting the same MPG ( 46 to 48 ) and the satisfaction of 'only' paying 96p per litre, when local stations are 1.13

    We do get the odd whiff of cooking oil smell ( que the kids.....mmmmm CHIPS ! )

    I've been advised to change the fuel filter, after 3000 miles on the stuff ( thats 3 weeks for me ) As it cleans all the sh!t out of the tank & lines as well.

    The only downside, is early morning V COLD starts, two lots of pre-heat and she fires up now though.
