    Default anybody tried vegetable or sunflower oil in the dti engine?

    hello everyone.

    just sat wondering about my carbon foot print and how i can reduce it. (also to save myself a few quid)

    has anybody tried pure vegetable oil or sun flower oil in their DTI engines?

    I thought you could get way with it on the older style dti engines but not on the cdti's? anyone?
    Now I need a turbo to keep up!

    That's the point!! These new fangled 2.2's (!) use the pump to control the fueling, timing and all sorts, which is wht I'd be nervous about p'ing about with different fuels.

    Stick to the major brands, matey. It'll work out cheaper in the long run!

    sorry i havn't got the Bal*s to try this out, plus the wife would kill me if the engine died.

    a friend of mine is running his rover 75 on his without any probs, hes running a 50/50 mix, hes only been running on it for a few weeks though. (52 plate)
