Hi there people, I have an Astra 2.0 sri on a 53 plate and I'm considering running it on rapeseed oil. However, I understand there are issues with it being too thick for lucas injector pumps to suck up to lubricate themselves. I don't want to run the car on 100% oil, 50/50 would be nice though. I know there are people out there who just fill up with chip fat and do many happy miles - I'm not that lucky!
So my question is, does my car have the lucas injector pump/can it be swapped for a bosch one made of sterner stuff and would heating the fuel to thin it mean that the lucas unit (if fitted) would cope? more than one I know.
I'm doing 600 plus a week so any tips on how to make my little work horse run cheaper would be much appreciated.
Thanks for looking
