    Lots of Big problems in my area of the truck industry at the moment with common rail diesels :ohmy: Injectors, High pressure pumps.

    Injectors £1000 a go

    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 :keule:

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

    I've been advised to change the fuel filter, after 3000 miles on the stuff ( thats 3 weeks for me :scared2: ) 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.
