The increasing inclusion of bio fuel additives to regular diesel - mandatory at 7% here in the UK but increasing to 12% soon - has been reported to cause blockages of diesel filters.
The usual cure is an 'Italian Service' i.e. blast your car up the motorway for a few 10's of miles to clear the blockage but this doesn't help those who's usual journeys are only local with little access to open roads - it also makes a mockery of the idea that bio diesels help the environment
if you 'have' to do the Italian Service on a regular basis.
The RAC in the UK are said to attend 600 call outs per MONTH from diesel vehicle owners suffering this problem
If this is a problem 'not of the car owners making' then are we entitled to redress? Has this matter cropped up in any other country? Has there been any legal prescedence set?
Has anyone experienced such problems?
Your comments appreciated.
