feywords (feywords) wrote in biodiesel,


I've been using biodiesel in our 2001 VW Golf. The biodiesel was made by a friend. It didn't start the other day, so we had it towed to the mechanic. 

It wasn't totally b100(cause we mixed).. The biodiesel left a residue in the fuel tank and burst the fuel line. It will be about a 1K repair...  so this experience with biodiesel has been that it freezes at the freezing point.

*this means more research into tank or fuel line heaters and other options 

Anyone have any advice?
