Sorry to continue the hijack.

So where is it going?
I heard Finland (Switzerland?) Is buying a lot as they will be 90+% dino free by 2020.


I can't understand why my MPG's are so low..........

Apparently, you can get some B100 more or less directly from the producers.

In Germany, there's plenty of fuel stations carrying B100.

In the EU, the B100 compatible cars are a dying breed - with a diesel particulate filter, it's asking for trouble.

To get it back on track, I'm surprised with the increase use of a DPF (above) there aren't more diesels even american 'branded' cars that run them to get round the Smog requirements like the TDI.

Like the Saturn Astra.... with the 1.9cdti(fiat multijet) 150bhp engine, i'm sure that would go down a storm! or the FULL econetic Focus.....

good things come to those who wait, sh*t turns up pretty much instantly
