PostSubject: Running on biodiesel   Mon Feb 24, 2014 1:08 pm

Hi guys,

first, I'm glad to say we managed to cross the darien gap with our cruising cabin (obviously by container Very Happy) and we now are in the beautiful Colombia.
But, there is only biodiesel here !!!
I saw a couple of posts here about biodiesel and leaking fuel pump, so how long can we run on that diesel before getting in trouble ? Can we delay a bit the issue with some additives ?

Worst case scenario, what should I change to run on biodiesel ?
Thanks !

No need to change anything, just fill it and run it.
Have a spare filter handy just in case.
Toyota set the engines to run on most grades of Diesel from good clean Euro/US to from the jerry cans in central Asia. It will run maybe a little lumpy but I suspect you will not notice a thing.

sorry for the late reply !
thanks for your message, for some reasons, I was expecting gas stations with biodiesel to use 100% biodiesel, but in fact, every station around the globe is using a blend of fossil and bio diesel :p

There is an interesting article online about the different blends around the world :
