So as expected the Firetruck is averaging 6,3 km/l around town and this is with either straight biodiesel or with a 25% diesel/75% biodiesel mixture.

However on the open road with the trailer I am getting almost 8 km/l with the mixture as opposed to the 5 km/l I got with straight biodiesel.

Temps go up with the mixture but nothing concerning.

Definitely more vooma with the mixture.

HAHAHAHAHA..... yeah... even I battle to get.... I should have just kept my mouth shut....

Sadly it is a matter of return oil that they get back from the people they supply the new fresh oil to. There is only so much oil out there that they supply, so we now share the spoils (gains) for out thirsty diesels.

But still worth it though.

So I have been able to get a guy that can supply anny quantity required but it is at R12L.

If you need more info drop me a watsup or call and I can provide detail.

Might then assist Cedric on getting his grubby paws on more Bio from his own supplier :oldtimer: :lol:
