Hi all,
Just received a reply to a email from Freedom Fuels about availability of B20.

Thankyou for your enquiry John,

We envisage that the first B20 store on the northside for us will be Nudgee. We will be listing B20 supply information on our website from early October. We’ve received an overwhelming response to B20 which is extremely pleasing.

Our website can be found at www.freedomfuel.com.au (http://www.freedomfuel.com.au/)

Many Thanks

Natalie Tuffley
Retail Operations Manager

Freedom Fuels


Hope that helps some,
Regards
John H

Good to see that they do reply to their emails, I have sent one to them and also called them, haven't heard anything from them via email and the woman that answered my call stated that she didn't know but would get back to me, gave her my email addy and phone number and still waiting, that was back in november, and it is now January.

So would anyone be able to help me out, as their website doesn't list what sites have it and what sites don't, so where on the south side of brisbane can I get myself some of the good stuff... I do know about the site near minden heading out west.

Local servo (200m away) is going to be selling B20 soon too (Freedom) pity they don't know what's around the corner! Had to stop in the other day for $10 worth of the dirty stuff, that hurt.

Great news Kirk. You should add those sites to the biodiesel finder map (http://www.biofuelsforum.com/vbgooglemaphse.php) as well so you get listed properly.

Cheers,

Thanks for that. I've added most of the sites into the map.

I tried to be as accurate as possible with the locations but if I was slightly unsure I added the address into the information.

I'll continue to update the map as we change more sites over.

Hi to all biodiesel supporter. I am new to the form and i have a 2006 Peugeot 307 HDi. Recently, i have start buying and using Freedom fuel's B20 Biodiesel. I have found my fuel economy have gone up. Just wanted to know have anyone exprience this as well? B4 i was using Caltex LSD ,Neumann Petrol ULSD, and BP USLD. I was clocking average 4.7 ~4.8L/ 100km. Now, with the B20 ,i noticed it has gone up to 5.1 L/ 100km. Power n Torque response seems marginally less. I am wondering has any 307 HDi owners exprienced this, as i am concern with the increase fuel economy

I have also trial the engine oil for the HDi engine. Mainly Motul 8100 excess (5w-40, B3-4/A3-4) and Motul 8100 Eco-energy ( 5w-30, B5/ A5) the Eco energy is suppose to increase my fuel economy. But i have found there is no change compared to the 8100 excess. I was also wanting to know if any peugeot 307 HDi in brisbane have their car serviced at Euroserve in newstead and how they have found their service and experience.... til then... thanks!

Thanks KirkJ,
I went past the Brendale site the other day and noticed the Diesel bowser had Elite Diesel on it and I was going to check it out but as usual did not get around to it.
Good Job,

Freeedom Fuels also supplies B20 to bulk fuel customers, and can supply to equipment on site.

Is it true that the B20 blend Freedom are doing is blended in such a way so as to still meet the mineral spec? If so, this is a very important fact to note as all that silly crap that vehicle manufacturers carry on with about biodiesel voiding warranty goes out the window. :D
If it meets the mineral diesel spec, they have to support it. :p

Robert,
Unfortunately, they do not have to accept it. Gull has been supplying B20, for almost 12 months now, that they claim meets Diesel Spec, and even the RAC WA speaks out against it.
