I wonder why it is not widely available in the UK, almost every Shell station we visited in Germany, Austria, Holland and France had Bio Diesel, Diesel and V-Power Diesel.

My car is not high milage (22K) and therefore should'nt have been in need of just a detergent type clean, but the performance lift was very noticeable, to the point I reckon it would easily worth 5p on a litre over here. The consumption gains were all motorway based and at 90MPH'ish so I think it would pay for its self fairly quickly even at the much lower UK average speeds and around town.

Why is it the older I get .... the better I think I was ?
