The advantages of driving on used vegetable oil are numerous
and include substantial cost and environmental benefits:
Financially, huge savings can be made on the cost of fuel. A
change to the duty on biofuels
was made on 30th June 2007, resulting in a
threshold of 2,500 litres of fuel per year being set. If you use less than
this limit you do not need to register, submit returns or pay fuel
duty on the vegetable oil you use as road fuel. This represents a tax and
duty saving of up to £2,000 per year. If you are able to acquire and
filter your own supply of waste oil then the savings can be greater still.
With the cost of fuel at £1.25 per litre (Dec 2014),
using waste oil can give an annual fuel cost saving of £3,125.
Used cooking oil (UCO) is a carbon neutral fuel and makes good use of an otherwise
It is globally recognised that active steps need to be made in order to reduce our
emissions to combat climate change. These include the use of alternative energies and
fuels. Biofuels are arguably one solution in the fight to reduce emissions and driving on
unmodified waste vegetable oil is the most sustainable of all biofuels.
