If I remember correctly top gear did a episode with a 2nd hand m5? at a racetrack with bio fuel. the fuel ate through something or other.. may have been the gaskets. not certian, but it damaged the car. suppose itd be a hell of a lot cheaper though. its just off £1.30 up here now :(

If you switch to biodiesel get a new fuel filter ready

the biodiesel cleans the crap out of your tank and clogs the filter

you'll need a new one after a few hundred miles



if you make your own biodiesel its

duty free if you make less than 2500 litres /year
