I was under the impression that in order to run Bio-diesel you had to make a few modifications to the engines fuel lines, something about bio-diesel reacting to the rubber hoses?Cool Jetta by the way, VW only made 47 ECOdiesels in 92!
Hi Craig-Yes, biofuel will eventually turn rubber hosing to mush. It's best to replace rubber tubing with Viton hosing which is relatively inexpensive. I have not yet replaced my hoses because they are still pretty new...but a few miles down the road, I may have to!Yes, I heard that the ecodiesel was pretty rare- What a lucky find!
...Except that the "biodiesel" pump here at Alliance in Monterey only supplies B5--five percent biodiesel, 95 percent petrodiesel. Not really their fault, though you might say the banner is misleading. More on this soon.
