The imact on Fuel consumption will tell whether its clever or not

I just thought was an opportunity to use some spare stuff!

Initial experience (100 miles) suggests that the car is

1. Running more consistently at temps above 80 degrees (A warmer diesel engine is more efficient, within reason) with much less fluctuation.

2. The higher temp, combined with an increase in % of Veg oil in the fuel seems to have had a positive impact on drivability at higher speed.

so far, so good
