    Vehicles running on Biodiesel - Vehicles for addition to the stickied post.

    We have a similar thread on the WVO Forum where vehicles people have converted to use WVO are listed.

    I felt it was time to create a similar sticky on the Using Biodiesel Forum

    Well, Here it is:Here it is:

    If you have a diesel vehicle which you operate on biodiesel (or blends above B30), please provide the following information for addition to the above sticky.
    Make/Model ; Year ; Engine (Common Rail?); Distance / Time; Blend ratio; Issues; Member (optional).

    I will check this thread at every login to ensure that the lists are populated promptly with your information.


    As I add vehicles which are similar to the entries in Blue, in the lists, I will remove the Blue entries. Eventually, only entries in Black will be in the list.

    If you wish to update the entry for your vehicle(s), please post here with the updated information.

    Regards,
    Tony
    Over to you.

    Regards,
    Tony

    Nissan Patrol GQ TD42 89 Turbo, 2 years on BD100 and 28000km, sold yesterday with a total of 235000km on the clock. rotary pump, only one hard to start (failure to run) after a below 5deg night and an early morning start with Frytol Bio let it sit for an hour and no worries

    Nissan Patrol GQ TD42 91 stole turbo from the 89 model one above, 13000km on BD100, has a total of 320000km on the clock, rotary pump

    old mans Pajero 2.8 turbo/inter cooled, two years on Bio BD100 28000km with heaps of problems (IP related), IP is in for a rebuild now and diesel mechanic blames Bio but it had the problem before bio was used so??? I am amazed at how long it kept going before the cold mornings got to it haha

    hi Tony
    the entry on the sticky is incorrect


    Toyota estima (skinny jap tarago) 1994 3L turbo intercooled engine, rotary pump b100 8 months 10 000km, loss of power due to blocked fuel filter. speedo 250 000kms

    1994 toyota estima (skinny jap tarago) 3ct turbo intercooled engine, rotary pump b100 8 months 10 000km, loss of power due to blocked fuel filter.
    speedo 250 000kms

    the 3ct is the engine type not size, it is in fact a 2.2 liter engine which is quite different to a hilux engine. It more like a diesel corolla engine .just to stop any confusion
    thanks
