    Spoke to Audi customer services yesterday regarding using bio in our PD130 Sport.

    No problem they said. Anything up to 100% bio is fine. Just change the fuel filter after 250-300 miles.

    They did say that DPF equipped cars can't use it. So the current crop of DPF equipped diesels coming out are increasing the reliance on mineral diesel! What a load of ****.

    Hmmm in Belgium, all the diesel sold there is 5% bio, you cant buy 100% Diesel, wonder how that will work out then or maybe just 5% doesnt matter that much.

    Probably 5% is OK. I didn't ask what percentage DPFs could cope with but 100% is out.

    AFAIK most diesel sold in the UK is 5% biodiesel; this will certainly be the case when the Road Transport Fuels Obligation kicks in.
