A place I used to work for sells B100 (100%), all EN rated stuff.
Had loads of repeat customers with new cars, some running 50:50, some neat. My boss ran both his newish Sprinter vans on it, and the forklift.

I've run Fiat Unos and Vauxhall Astras on it neat, but they were older engines. I've been told by a lot of people its not worth running a modern common rail on it.

If anyone does buy in bulk, I have some words of warning...

-it IS flammable, low flash point, but still very flammable!
-it goes really thick in winter, and additives don't usually come cheap...
-How long will it take to use 1000 litres?
-Invest in an electric pump and fit a filter finer than your vehicle one... This is VERY important.

If I had the room I would have bought by bulk by now!
