So we’ll be putting this rapeseed oil inside our “Diesel” and we’ll see if it will be able to handle it. The time has come to prepare for the upcoming season. Here’s our “Diesel” with which I’ve driven a long time ago. It’s been a while since the last time the engine was started. So we’ll need to change the engine oil. We’ll be switching the tires to the winter ones. Also we’ll be doing an experiment. I have some rapeseed oil on the bench. Do not attempt what I’ll be doing in this video. We’ll see if our “Diesel” will be able to handle this. Actually the biodiesel is made from the vegetable oil. Of course the oil is processed and filtered before hand. Internet is full of misinformation about Biodiesel. People claim that it ruins the engines, filters and fuel systems in general. Today we’ll try to debunk these myths. And for that we’ll be using this rapeseed oil. As I’ve mentioned before, let’s start with the oil change. And afterwards we’ll try to mix the rapeseed oil with diesel. We’ll have to warm the engine a bit. Old engine oil must be really thick right now. Let’s open these doors. Let’s wait a bit, till it warms up. It should be alright now. I really hope that I have the correct oil filter. Cause all the shops are closed right now. I don’t want any unnecessary problems. So how do I avoid making a mess. It’s loose. Beautiful. Old o-rings are as hard as a rock. Plastic, literally. Let’s keep our garage clean. Let’s not overtighten this. Let’s hope it won’t be leaking. I’ll be covering the pit. I’ve left the lamp down there. Let’s fill her up with oil. LIQUI MOLY 10w-60 engine oil. It’s time tested in sport. Let’s avoid making a mess. Why isn’t it running? Ah, because there’s a seal. Let’s check the oil level. Almost at the max, let’s put some more oil in. I’ll start the car, let it run for a bit then check again. Oh we were in the gear. Perfect. We’ve done the oil change. Let’s put on the hood, and we’ll be ready to mix the rapeseed oil. We have some diesel ready. It’s just plain diesel from the gas station. And we’ll be mixing the diesel With this rapeseed oil. We’ll be adding 7% of oil to the diesel. Exactly that much oil there is in the regular diesel that is sold in the gas stations. Diesel which is marked with B7. So now we’ll be making biodiesel at home. Do not attempt this yourselves. But if people think that by using the diesel from gas stations in their cars they can destroy their vehicles, clog their fuel filters or ruin their fuel injectors. Today we’ll be busting all those myths surrounding biodiesel. We’ll be using the cooking oil which is not even fit to be mixed with diesel. Lets give it a go. There’s 20L of diesel inside one of these containers. With the help of calculator we’ll figure out how much the 7% from the 20L is. And it is 1.4L of oil. We’ll be adding that much to it. The first liter of oil. It’s hard to open. I’ve already learned my lesson that there’s usually a seal. Looks deliciuos. Let’s add another 400ml. We’ll do the same with the rest of the fuel. And we’ll have a full tank of biodiesel. It will be interesting. Let’s hope the engine doesn’t die. Let’s hope that this experiment won’t go wrong. But if the sport vehicle’s able to handle it, the daily driver shouldn’t have any problems. We have a full tank of biodiesel. We’ll start the car and take it for a spin. And if you had a situation in which you had to add some sort of an unconventional fuel to your car. Feel free to share the story in the comments below. And give your thoughts on this diesel and oil mix, and if it would be a good idea to daily drive with this biodiesel. Let’s start the vehicle. Let’s see if it runs at all. We’re ready. There’s some dirt here. Everything looks fine for now. Vehicle’s working. But before we head out we need to change our rear tires to M+S ones Even with sport pass you cannot disobey the traffic laws. With sport pass you can drive on the streets, you can drive to events, and you can drive to the gas station. But you cannot use it as a daily driver. And if you think that you add roll bars to your car, get yourself a sport pass and drive the car on the streets as a daily. You’re very wrong. First of all you’ll loose the sport pass, then all the other people will loose their sport passes. And in the end we’ll loose the ability to drive our sport vehicles on the streets altogether So be responsible and don’t daily driver you sports car. So I think we can finally go out. Alright, let’s give the car a go. Engine is at the operating temperature. We’ll see how’s the acceleration. We’ll check if anythings odd. Well currently everything seems fine. I don’t feel a discomfort. Vehicle drives like it used to. Now we’ll add some kilometers and see if anything changes. We’ll try to empty the fuel tank. And in the end we’ll be able to compare everything. I can smell the pancakes. Let’s do some doughnouts. Smell is a mix of pancakes and tires. Everything seems good. We’ll need to take a few more trips. We need to add more kilometers. And afterwards we’ll do some burnouts. The plan is clear. Half of the fuel tank is done. Weather has changed a bit. It’s wet. So as I’ve mentioned it’s time to do some burnouts. Easy warm-up for the beginning. We thought we’d go to the track to have some fun. If you want to see some track runs leave a like on this video. We have a half of tank left. We’ll finish the second half of the tank and then we’ll tell you our verdict. Long night awaits. Let’s go for a ride. So the tank is done. Actually two days ago it was done. I thought we’ll leave the “Diesel” outside. Here it sits. Left alone. We’ll see how it starts. The fuel tank is empty. And it’s -1°C outside. Let’s check how it starts. I don’t know if you’re able to see anything. Where’s the ignition? Here? Not here. Here we go. We have some lights. It’s on neutral. Let’s start it. Cool, it started. We’ve managed to go 800km on a single tank of biodiesel. There were around of 55L of fuel in the tank. So it’s around 7L/100km. It’s hard to tell if it made any difference to the fuel economy. Because I’ve never went that many kilometers with this car. Because you usually just go to the track with this car. Well it didn’t loose any power in my opinion. Nothing went wrong, car seems to work nicely. We’ll be parking the car inside the garage now. Of course it’s hard to know anything for certain, after only 800km. But currently results seem to be fine. So if we managed to get away with the mix of rapeseed oil. The biodiesel in the gas stations shouldn’t be a problem. So our journey has come to an end. We’ll see each other next time.
