It's a "day van" so will mainly be used for traveling to Anglesey when needed. With some camping possibly around and about.
And it's better on fuel than the Jag so will be used for pottering.

I have been told that these engines it being a 1.9 td love to be fun on veg oil so I am going to,look into that. I have been told that you can just pour it into the tank and go!

The wheels are 20"!!!!

I think you have to add something to the veg oil but memory escapes me what it is at the moment.

Is veg oil really cheaper than diesel fuel? I can see the sense in using old chip fat if you happen to own a "chippie", but buying gallons of cooking oil can't be any better than diesel fuel - can it :?: :?: :w

I used to know a few people who ran diesels on a couple of alternatives to diesel. The general opinion was mix it with diesel and run a full tank of just diesel about every 4th tank full. Probably save some money if you have a cheap source of used oil.
