I was under the impression that ordinary ULSD could have up to 10%
bio-diesel anyway. Something on a pump labled "bio-diesel" having any
dino-diesel in it would surely fall foul of the Trades Descriptions

There is broad agreement in the processes but disagreement when it
comes to how well you have to clean up/neutralise the product after
some of the processes. Also disagreement about engine damage (or not)
on the various forms of bio out there. From straight filtred frying
oil to the processed stuff.
