true, but try going to a station and getting red diesel nowadays, you'll need your passport, driving licence and 3 utility bills just to get the pump started.Chris
That's not entirely accurate as Red diesel is relatively tax free
Did you have a 2 tank system or heat it at all?I ran a 206 sw 2 litre hdi on refined old cooking oil for about 2 yrs, no problems
at all, except on cold mornings when it would thicken up, but always started after
a few goes.
Bought from a place on the a64 going into York, about half the price of diesel.
Seem to remember they added kerosene to it.
Do they even sell red diesel these days?!?!If you put red diesel in your car and drive it on the roads you could also be prosecuted. I was talking about using it for cars driven on the road.
you can still buy it, a garage on the a63 in Hull sells it, the pump if a garage has one is usually amongst the adblue and fast flow hgv pumps.... the really old fashioned looking one. But to buy it you need photo I.d. once you put it in the tanks stained forever. Think its more for boats and generators these days, although the red taint does keep the pikeys mits off my fuel tank! Its the only truck in the yard that doesn't get drained every Christmas!Do they even sell red diesel these days?!?!
Tbh with recycled veg oil,just pay the duty on it 50 odd pence a litre is still a biiiig saving!
