Re: veg oil

I wouldn't even consider doing it,the savings you might make by using it will soon be out weighed by replacing the high pressure pump and/or injectors.

I'm sure someone will be along to say that they use it with out problems,but they are either exceptionally lucky,haven't been using it for very long,or complete liars!.

Re: veg oil

Common rail diesels don't like veg oil . You need an older generation XUD 1.9 Citroen/Peugeot engine in a 405/306/xantia etc.
