I drive a diesel car, but I’m becoming concerned about the quality of fuel

I drive a diesel car and am concerned about fuel quality now fuel companies can add up to seven per cent biodiesel to the normal diesel and the sulphur content has been reduced.

Our breakdown service has not reported any problems caused by biodiesel in diesel purchased from forecourts. Fuel stations have had to adopt very tough housekeeping standards to keep water out of diesel (the bacteria grow in the water layer which can form in biodiesel or normal diesel).

The dispensing pumps have very effective filters to prevent the bacteria (which forms chains) from reaching your car.

Biodiesel has excellent lubricity properties and compensates for the lack of sulphur in the standard diesel.
