I have got a laguna 1.9 dci and also a 2.2 initiale dci both are 2002 models. Would they be ok running on biodiesel as I have a supplier nearby.

Are you referring to bio-diesel or recycled veggie oil - not the same thing. Generally common rail injection engines can be troublesome - I suggest you ask Renault for written advice - but I wouldn't hold my breath.

It will definitely required modifications probably to the injectors and fuel line including a fuel heater

Cost circa a grand, but you can recoup that these days in no time if you're high mileage. Someone on here has converted their 1.9dCi scenic I think ...
