Loc: 1313 Mockingbird Lane, I live ...
took mine to kwikfit last year and was told it could fail cos of the k&n induction kit messing up the emissions, as they'd had it before with other cars, which later passed with original air filter on. As it happens, my car passed with better emissions than usual and passed again this year no problem.... hmmmmmmm

all depends on the mot station too, if your car is really low it will fail on the head light level, i think it has to be above 60mm, takin off abs, when its got it

I was running Bio till a few weeks back, got a bit hard to start from frozen one a really cold morning though (could have been due to a somewhat defective battery however), so I since stopped using it.

Never run actual veggie oil on me car, I think I will stick to regular derv though until the summer. 56p a litre in Tesco does sound good, mind you 75p a litre of Bio was pretty darn good too!

i know on the little kit i seen on this astra there was a hot watewr circulator thingy kept it warm when running and an electrical one to preheat it when it was starting, with veg oil being thicker than diesel

Yeah, people often use the heater's, but too much hassle imho, some people even use seperate tanks. The SDi can run fine without either though, so long as it has 5 - 10% of regular derv added. So on a 55 litre tank, 50 litre's can be say SVO and 5 litres+ reserve can be regular derv, meaning a potential saving of upto 25 a full tank based upon a lite of SVO being 56p and a litre of derv being 1.06... but the hassle of going to Tesco and buying 50x 1 litre bottles of SVO hence Biodiesel is more practical and still a decent saving of around 12.00 per tank.
