Hi,

I have just bought a 1995 Rangerover 2.5 (BMW) turbo diesel and was just wondering if it will run ok on Bio without any modifications..

I dont see why not, It should run fine. Biodiesel is a direct replacement for normal Diesel so it should run fine in any diesel vehicle. The only engines that have problems are ones with old natural rubber hoses and gaskets and pretty much all modern vehicles have more modern plastic based tubing/ gaskets (urethane/silicone etc) so you should be fine.

Just make sure the Bio is of a high quality and made properly or else it could cause problems.

And just to make sure you understand: Biodiesel is NOT veg oil, SWO, WVO etc. Smile

Just making sure, youd be surprised how many people think Bio is vegoil! Rolling Eyes

Yeah generaly it a little cheaper, it depends on the dino diesel price at the time. Remember that you usualy get slightly lower MPG on Bio that dino though so the cost balance out in some cases.

I get about 25mpg on dino and about 22-24 on bio.

Dunno whats happening with your motor, retard the timing by a degree and itl improve, bio burns slower but with more power.

use the torque of the fuel rather than revs...

Ive just completed testing with B100 and even allowing for ambient temperature difference im actually 2MPG better off.

adjusted timing, KN airfilter and a fuel heater( vehicle is SVO converted)
