Iv just had to pay 1.33 per liter for diesel. and im not happy angry
I have a 96 non turbo T4 and just wonderd if any one has or knows if it will run on svo (straight veg oil) or bio diesel.
i used to run my old delica on svo and tryed to run my freelander td4 on biodiesel(very bad idea) cost £3000 to put right)
thanks

Yes those garages sure made a killing out of the vat rise. My local put theirs up by 11p overnight. No shame.
I too would be very wary of running a T4 on veg oil. Even supermarket diesel makes me wince. I'd start with a gallon added to a full tank if I was to go down that route and just add gradually to see if there were any adverse effects. Long term though, who knows.
