I was sad to see Hebden Biofuels go, and spent a few months of increasingly guilty motoring, although it did encourage me to walk more which must be a good thing.
But I'm back on the chip-fat having discovered Eco Bio-diesel in Burnley, off the A646 before just you get to the M65 (see www.ecobiodiesel.co.uk). They use recycled cooking oil, which in my opinion is the only green option (intensively growing crops for fuel can't be a good idea, even worse if its imported). They've added an antifreeze so you don't have to mix with mineral diesel in cold weather.
And to justify the long trip, take some home with you in a jerry can and recreate that filling station experience outside your own home.

There's a school of thought that says there are no such things as vehicle 'problems'. Only either naff design/production engineering (aka 'quality control') and, much more commonly, poor maintenance. The capacity of the motoring public for destroying functional machinery is legendary, within the industry.

Im currently buying my bio diesel from a new place in Rochdale - Bio-D fuels (fuel seems to be running well in my 1999 vw passat and price is really low, only 78.9p/L!!! Bargain and greener option, I took some jerry cans to take home to make the journey worthwhile.
