Hi,

Id like to try running my car on Biodiesel(B20)- but there is no one selling any Biodiesel in Melbourne,

Anyone have any ideas where I could get some, or if its likely that it will be available in the near future.

And just out of curiositly, why are the so many sites selling BIO Fuels in SA and virtually none in the other states ?

Thanks.

Relatively small independent petroleum companies like SAFF and Gull (WA) can make decisions locally without seeking approval from overseas or, they are more accommodating of change or, they are trying to work for the benefit of all people, not just the shareholders.
Take your pick.

Hi Roberto,

Welcome to the forums. Fortunately, there is a good biodiesel community in Melbourne to help you if you want to use some homemade brew and mix it 20% with distillate in your tank. Check out the thread in this forum on the Melbourne Biodiesel Club for more info.

The Melbourne Biodiesel Club (http://melbournebiodiesel.org) is working hard to --
A; Create a fraternity of backyard producers, and users, so as to aid/help those who are new to BioDiesel and/or just want to try some in their cars.:)
B; Promote SAFF fuels in the hope they will help the MBDC create the first pure biofuels servo in Melbourne.:)
C; Create more understanding of the importance of biofuels in a world of Global Climate Change, and Peak Oil.

Hi, I just joined these forums today.

I'm visiting Melbourne at the moment and would love to try biodiesel in my 1981 Peugeot for my drive home to Wagga Wagga on the weekend.

Where can I buy some? Are there any retail outlets here? (I'm staying in Cheltenham.)

If I can continue to use biodiesel when I am at home in Wagga, that would be fantastic as well.

Any information that you can provide would be great!

Cheers,
Andrew

Unfortunately, I'm going home on Sunday.

BTW, I've read the thread, but i can't work out exactly where the place is. I admit that I may not have read the message accurately.

Cheers,
Andrew
