Bio-diesel costs more to produce than the normal stuff and to compensate attracts less VAT. Unfortunately filling stations can sell a mix of bio diesel and DERV and still refer to it as Bio diesel - Yes it gets confusing. It must be remembered bio-diesel isn't the same thing as veggie oil - quite a different product. Unfortunately some suppliers have jumped on the green bandwagon and actually charge more than DERV - claiming you are helping the environment.
