    Ok, so by the sounds of it it all depends on the quality of the bio one makes?? So far it sounds like I will run my 300tdi on bio, so I guess my next step is to get this book you guys recommended and check it out. Im also going to have a 'serious' chat with Justinc to get something started as a cooperative maybe (chip in $ and labour to make it).

    Thanks all for your replies.

    I also did that training course.
    Have made a lot of bio, but not to successfully, good enough to run farm machinery.
    After many trials found that 100% bio did some damage to "o" rings .
    I now run on 50/50 mixture.
    still have 3000 ltr of oil to use up yet
    Thinking about a Biopro unit. has any one got one up and running in aus?

    Just for numbers...

    My tdi has been running on pretty much any blend of pure dewatered and filtered wvo, diesel, commercial bio, home brew biodiesel, diesel and reject avtur for a couple of years now, short of the ex- trying to proove the tdi 300 is aircooled and sump oil is an optional extra the only potential fuel related issue I've had has been fuel lines on the injector return line, the boost compensator diaphragm rupturing (which I suspect has more to do with how I've tuned it than the bio) And changing the fuel filter with every service.

    Oh and I had to.replace.then lift pump, but that was dying before I go t it.
