    Not to sure if the pump would like it as they are fragile at the best of times, im sure some other members will be along to advise.

    TBH for all you are really saving I wouldn't, if the pump fails then it will cost alot more than you've saved

    I seem to remember Drinky looking into it and discovered that he could run it in his dti.
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    i wouldnt try this in my vectra, i know a chap at work he puts 50% deisel and 50% cookin oil in his scenic and it runs fine, but the filter clog up so you have to do regular services, imo i wouldnt bother with bio diesel unless i had a banger to try it on
