LPGmap (www.lpgmap.co.uk) also now incorporates bio diesel filling stations too and you can select between showing LPG, bio diesel or both on the map.

If you are ever in Milton Keynes you could try these guys. I'm pretty sure they source the biodiesel they sell from golden fuels in Oxford so it's tested to the correct EN standards but it may be worth double checking.

Have a look on the websites listed above as a first port of call.

What I have noticed, particularly in Wales, is a lot of Biodiesel companies are folding!

The cost of their raw materials has got so expensive that they cannot sell the biodiesel less than £1.10 a litre. I dunno about you lot, but I won't pay more for it!! I need to be paying AT LEAST 5 pence a litre cheaper to fill up with it!

hi

i asked the question to sum1 i know yesterday
about bio diesel
he says take caution

says that bio diesel has sulphuric acid in it to clean the oil

problem with that is its fine with steel but
when you mix sulphuric acid with aluminium it makes the aluminium fizz up and corrode

well the 300 tdi engine has a aliminium head etc so i dont think its a good idea if what i have been told is true

can some1 shed some light on this


tony

Yes sulfuric acid is part of the biodiesel production process, but I have never heard nor read of any concerns with regards to this and aluminium in the system.

I believe it is used to remove the FFA (Free Fatty Acids) in the production process, but it drains with the water I think?

I took this from a Biodiesel forum

The BioPro processors can process high FFA feedstock by running an Acid Catalysed Esterification before the Base Catalysed Transterification. The Acid Esterification converts the FFA into Methyl Esters. Do a google search on Acid/Base methods and you will see what it is about.

By the way, using this method there is no Sulfuric Acid in the finished Biodiesel as any excess is neutralised when the Base reactin takes place.

yes its bollix , acid can be and is used in some processing, but its not included in the final product.

acid is sometimes used to neutralize the alkaline chemicals used

the ph of bio isnt damaging


properly made , washed and stored bio is not going to damage anything , other than natural rubber. which is uncommon in modern engine bays.
