    I've used veg ( rapeseed ) oil as I said earlier , absolutely fine but I think the viscosity when cold killed the crude '96 mechanical fuel pump .

    I guess the 1.9 PD's have a pre heating of fuel to make it thinner in viscosity ?

    Both veg and sunflower seem the same viscosity and the same energy content . Not a huge saving when bought by the litre .

    I'm not sure what you mean by it cleaning out the tank and fuel system as I'm sure pump diesel has added solvents , detergents and dispersants , the stuff dissolves tarmac !

    Does sunflower or veggie dissolve tarmac ?

    I'm an avid user of 2 Stroke oil in derv .

    at the mo- I save one pound per gallon-the old CAV/Lucas diesel pumps would give up the gost with veg oil--but the Bosch pumps I have never had a prob with--no my 1.9 pd dont pre heat(only reciculate from filter untill up to temp them it opens and returns to tank via a we heat exchanger under driverside be4 back to tank-sunflower is thiner !!-becaue its thicker than diesel-it drags all the crap from the tank and lines(thats why I said after first two tanks ya need to change the fuel filter!) cleans the tank and lines--diesel from the pump is not as clean as foke think-(take you fule sender out and give you tank a scrape and you will see what I am saying-veg abd sunflower oil is -what it says on the plastic bottle-vegetable matter- not petroleum- no cemicals so no carbon etc etc-so no crap build up in you engine--is it startting to make sence ??--no I.m not trying to be a t--t just trying to make a point !!!! ps I have never heard of the 2stroke thing--but be ashured I am going to try !!!!pps-next time you change fuel filter--have a look at just how black/dirty it is !! and that is just from pump fuel !!!

    Surprised you haven't heard , it has to be mineral based JASO FB spec .

    Semi and synthetic FC and FD don't dissolve well in the fuel and are more expensive anyway .

    The oil brings additional lubricity to the pump and detergents and dispersants to keep the fuel system clean .

    Being a petrol additive it must burn like petrol so it's molecules are first to ignite under diesels compression ignition then the diesel molecules follow , so this reduces diesels ignition delay ( diesel knock ) thus improving the fuels Cetane number .

    The results are , quicker starting particularly noticeable from cold , quieter engine mostly noticeable at idle , less smoke out of exhaust as better combustion . Less carbon deposits in egr , intake manifold , turbo , etc .

    More mpg , only a few .

    You'll need more than just 100ml to a tank .


    10 Litre Diesel ---> 50 Ml.
    20 Litre Diesel ---> 100 Ml
    30 Litre Diesel ---> 150 Ml.
    40 Litre Diesel ---> 200 Ml.
    50 Litre Diesel ---> 250 Ml.
    60 Litre Diesel ---> 300 Ml.
    70 Litre Diesel ---> 350 Ml.
    80 Litre Diesel ---> 400 Ml.
    90 Litre Diesel ---> 450 Ml.
    100 Litre Diesel ---> 500 Ml.

    Are you egr disabled ?

    When you quote an mot smoke opacity reading of just 0.02
    ( lower than an actual reading of a dpf equipped car ) is that opacity mean value or just the lowest result ?

    I understand you put in some pump derv when it gets really cold , it's what taxi drivers do but put a splash of petrol in the derv tank , I understand as it's more combustible thus reduces the diesel knock .
