Eh!!!!!!!!!!!!!!YOU DON'T!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Petrol and diesel have very different burn properties!!

Yes you can mix DIESEL with the WVO and that mix will depend on temperature outside, but PETROL??????

yes you can and lots do, but no more than 2% and be aware that the cetane value of the fuel is reduced but it will thin the veggie out.

as always a twin tank conversion is the only truely safe way to run it long term.

OK, i'll retract that, but why would you?

As you say, 2%? So thats 0.8 of a litre in 40 litres?

but it reduces the cetane value, which as I understand cetane values, that means it is a LESS efficient burn? So you add more money but get less bang for your buck?

Some people claim they get more power from addint petrol, lots claim they get less. and less economy...

The reason why you add Petrol is its a fantastic solvent for thinning veg oil - 5% Petrol will near enough halve the thickness of the oil....
