Gotta love these old beasts. Well, even though it may not been often reported, an older and presumably higher-polluting old-school Diesel running on veg oils or animal fats for fuel and lube still makes more sense than resorting to all the bells and whistles for emissions compliance which in turn render newer engines unsuitable to some alternate fuels which require fewer chemical processsing.

Very bad on updates at the moment, bought a house and moving in at end of october, anyway seems like the gearbox service has lowered consumption quite a bit and spring change made no negative effect

Off to work, see you next time
