  1. Re: 'Off-the-grid' doco - Amatuers and experts wanted

    Hi Peter, sounds like a great adventure.
    I'm building a strawbale house just south of Sydney in Razorback, on a block of land we are setting up for permaculture. We were using B100 in our two cars...

    Re: Peugeot 406

    Do it - a great car for the money. Nobody believes me when I say I get 6 open road and 7 mixed l/100km from a 7 seater family wagon, but that's what ours does. Also, new they were an overpriced (for...

    Re: Soy Biodiesel @ TBS

    Thanks Morris - I got some of this from you the other day (and the load before that), and have no major complaints. I certainly like running B100 in colder temperatures, after having filter issues...

    Re: Peugeot 406

    Well thanks for your edit, because the explicit comment that we have NO (uppercase) knowledge of 406s was rather harsh.

    Funny - the only other 406 wagon I was considering looking at was in Tasmania, I nearly came to down to see it! Ended up getting mine from Dubbo.

    As for expensive, that's relative. More than...

    Sure - great car. I have a 2002 HDi wagon, which I purchased after asking around here and elsewhere about them. For the money I wanted to spend, it was the only manual wagon I could find that wasn't...

    I went through here today - the place I assume this is referring to (couldn't find anything else) is unfortunately no longer selling any bio at all.

    The lady at the counter said that they used to,...

    Re: Peugeot 307 HDi seal issue

    I'm actually leaning towards a late 2002 406 HDi 2.0 now - I assume the issues would be roughly the same?

    Re: Peugeot 307 HDi seal issue

    Find me one, Golf or bigger, for around the $6-10k mark, and I'll buy it in an instant! Also needs to have cruise, airbags, ABS, and decent boot space.

    So is this a fair summary of Peugeot HDi engines:

    They work just fine, as long as you get the following replaced with bio-compatible versions: "Injector bleed lines, pump seals, filter sealants...

    Not to my knowledge. It doesn't have the infamous "Nicht biodiesel" sticker in the filler cap, the manual says that you can use bio which conforms to the euro standard (most likely B5 from what I've...

    Re: Volkswagen Polo TDI

    Mine's still ticking over very nicely, around 15000km on B100 now.

    I don't have hard evidence, but the engine seems smoother on B100 than the few times I've had to resort to dino.

    Re: The Death of Commercial Biodiesel in Australia?

    My submission is attached. Thanks Morris for bringing this to my attention as I filled up yesterday - it will be a sad day if I can't come over and get my big load of B100 from you any more.

    Re: Biodiesel in Skoda Octavia 1.9TDI/PD

    My Polo runs the same engine, tuned a bit differently (only 74kw here, but it can be chipped up to 100kw-ish, probably more like what you have).
    It's been on B100 since the fourth tank or so. When...

    Re: First tank for a VW Polo - advice please!

    Quite the opposite, I'm pretty patient. I'll fill and fill and fill until it's absolutely brimmed, which can take several minutes of waiting for it to gurgle down the tube. Typically I fit about 43 L...

    Perhaps also a sign of them changing just that bit more as I tanked up yesterday - the big sign with the prices visible from the road now says Biodiesel rather than Diesel. I'm pretty sure it didn't...
