Would you buy biodiesel in Presteigne?
Transition Presteigne (TP) has been talking to Presteigne garage aboutselling biodiesel. The garage is receptive but would like to know the level of interest from people in the community to help them make adecision about whether or not to stock it and how they might retail it.
This fuel is made from second generation oils/fats, that is, reprocessed (in Wales) frying oils etc and not first generation oil,where a crop e.g. rapeseed etc is grown specifically for the fuel market.
We have provided some information below which we hope will be sufficient to help you make an expression of interest.
If you'd be interested in purchasing this biodiesel in Presteigne please respond so Transition Presteigne can gauge the level of interest and hopefully progress this with the garage.
What is Biodiesel?
Biodiesel is produced from straight vegetable oil, animal oil/fats, tallow and waste cooking oil. It is much better for the environment, is otherwise a waste product and is less polluting than mineral diesel fuel.
Is it Safe For Your Car?
It Can be mixed with regular diesel
It is a High Quality Product: compliant with European Biodiesel Specification EN 14214
No Modifications necessary for Modern diesel vehicles
Cars can run on 100% biodiesel
Same mileage and performance as mineral diesel
Reduced engine wear/ increased engine life over mineral diesel
Smoother combustion than diesel.
1994 vehicles and later are built from biodiesel-compatible
materials: earlier vehicles may have to replace rubber hoses [cheap job]
Cars with common rail and unit injector systems built 2004 and after
can use a blend 20% biodiesel to start with to see how the car runs on it.
Older engine systems [2003 and earlier ] with distribution pumps are fine running on biodiesel
