Quality of Bio Diesel
Before you buy Bio diesel, how do you know the quality is good by the supplier. I have only been to one place, they said their diesel complied to the European standards but it was a load of rubbish.

Do you just risk it?

Wash test it. If you can, get some methanol and 27/3 test it as well.

Talk to the supplier, find out how they\'re washing their fuel, what filtration they\'re using, what oil they\'re using, etc. etc. Find out if they sound enthusiastic about what they\'re doing, or if they\'re just chucking a lot of Magnasol in and hoping for the best.

The best kind of recommendation is by word of mouth, or personal recommendations.

Do you know of anyone else using this companies\' biodiesel?

Are you saying that their claim that their fuel is EN standard is rubbish or that the fuel is rubbish?

After speaking to supplier, IF you are still sure they are claiming EN14214 when it is not, complain to Trading Standards explain the whole problem as above to them, and ask them what measure they have to verify the claims. If they are not EN and say they are, it is potentially damaging for customer\'s engines with little recourse, and unfair on those suppliers that DO comply
