I have been reading lately that diesel fuel in the UK contains 7% biodiesel. Can anyone confirm if this is true? Also, is it just certain brands or is it in all diesel fuel?
Thanks.

It would seem to be so.

" Since 2008, the UK has required fuel suppliers to add a growing proportion of sustainable materials into the petrol and diesel they supply. These biofuels are mainly ethanol distilled from corn and biodiesel made from rapeseed, used cooking oil and tallow."

Thanks guys. They were thinking of adding 5% bio to regular diesel here, but I don't think it is in all diesel fuels yet. I used to run straight biodiesel in my old 405 for a while but it didn't like it much.
