Post by chrisjvm »

I was just wondering if it's possible to run a MK1 Laguna on Veg oil?

2 problems, the 1.9 often came fitted with a Lucas pump which aren't really up to the task. Also it's a direct injection engine, and the general advice is not to run veg oil without a twin tank kit, as over the long term the rings can gum.

Thanks for that Evilally ...
It's not such a blow as the Laguna's doing about 18 mpg more than my Xant was on veg oil.
