After just hearing that we could be paying 1.80 p/l for fuel, it just got me wondering about wether or not I should try SVO! Has anyone ever used veggie oil in there focus and what was the outcome?

hmmm thanks guys so maybe SVO is out of the question. How about bio-diesel then... I have read that it should be fine but has anyone tried it? there is a bio filling station near me at work by the looks of it, so might consider trying it, but want the confidence that my engine wont just fall over and cry if I do use it...
