    from what i've read it's not really reccomended for CDTI style high pressure diesel engines..

    DTI engines with a old style pump could run on it thou..

    One of the Taxi firms we look after put this in one of their new Transits. It didn't get far before it had to be towed in!

    The problem is, there's lots of different types of biodiesel. Some are more compatible than others.

    Pure bio is the one you need to avoid if you're not sure - it's just de-esterified cooking oil.

    A bio blend is the stuff you should be fit to run no problems. I run a 95% bio blend, but add a little real diesel to the mix so it works out between 70-80% bio to 20-30% DERV.
