    Unfortunately my van won't run on it, which is a real shame.

    Sorry to hear that Bernie. I didn't see the cheap oil at Farnborough so wasn't sure if it was store wide.

    Will mne run on it? Transit di with a throttle cable?
    If it cleans the engine im not doing it, made that mistake before. Old engines are ment to be full of crap, stops them rattling too much

    Yes pyke, your van will run on veg, as long as you have a Bosch injection pump.
    I'm not sure what you mean about cleaning the engine though. All fuel goes through the pipes and fuel filter, then the injection pump. The crap is most likely to be in the tank, pipes and filter.
    Veg oil does pull that crap through, so it's the filter that will catch it, carry a spare at first.
    Also, for the good of the pump, add two stroke oil to veg and even straight diesel. That will reduced the rattle.
    If you do a lot of staying in one place, veg oil might not be the best thing to leave in your tank. I am talking months here not days.
    After two months off the road due to a weldathon, we had a blocked injector recently. I put that down to oil sitting in the tank for too long.
    It's good if you drive every day, not so good sat about for months.
