When is someone in the ACT going to start selling biodiesel.
I can get it at VP on the Hume at Holbrook and in Sydney.
I would like to be enviromentally friendly, use renewable fuels with less pollution.
I don’t even mind the 5% less milage which I get burning Canola and would be happy to drive a few extra kms to get it.

How come the ACT is so slow to adopt enviromentally friendly fuels?
Is it just following our federal government counterparts that suck up to the large oil companies?
Gelling in winter is less likely with Canola rather than animal Fat based biodiesel.
100% ie B100 biodiesel can be a problem so it is usually mixed with dino fuel the proportion depending on the temperature to meet Aust standards.
I have not had any problem with gelling even going up to Falls creek last week after a fill at Holbrook although I topped up with winter diesel at Mount Beauty.
The fuel at Holbrook is processed at Moama and is available at several VP outlets in Southern NSW.
Alot of misinformation is generated by the large fuel companies to protect their market.
