    Default Bio diesel

    I've started filling my car up at Morrisons station due to the price of their fuel mainly ,but I have noticed that my car runs smoother and is more responsive ,than when I fuelled up at Tescos .
    Looking at the pump last time I noticed their fuel is mixed with 7 % bio Diesel .I would be interested if anyone has noticed the same ?

    Up until April 2010, the maximum bio diesel is 5%, and is then increased to 7%
    However, here in Scotland Grangemouth has had to convert the equipment in advance, so the rate on deliveries since last week has been 7%
    Due to the legal requirement, all petrol stations in Scotland have had to apply these stickers and MUST be clearly visible when selecting a pump that dispenses diesel
    From April these stickers will then be removed

    So far only diesel from Grangemouth has been increased, but for legal reasons the signs have had to be applied across the UK

    What % of bio diesel will the cdti run on before it damages some
    engine components ? tells you in the manual that the cdti will not run on bio oils !
