    I have limited technical knowledge, but I believe it's a big no, no if you've got a common rail unit.

    Don't try it with any of Vauxhall's cars - unless you ask them first, but I'm sure it's written somewhere that using this for fuel will invalidate the warranty. They don't even cover you with warranty if you decide to use some bio-diesels too, if I remember right.
    With CDTI fuel pumps costing upwards of £1500 a pop (double that for v6), and DTI ones £3000 - is it worth the risk?
    NO.

    utter utter no on a common rail unit, so ALL CDTi's are out.. BUT you CAN use it in DTi's IF it's done correctly..

    Bosch pumps WILL run on it..

    for more info on running on veg oil, go to www.dieselveg.co.uk they are one of the uk's leading firms and sell the kit needed to let you run it..

    don't go pouring in neat veg oil into your DERV tank, it won't like it..
