CNG and LPG as additional alternative fuel systems are being used more and more. Mainly because the government did not yet put their greedy tax on it. Bi-fuel cars are offered since a few years but could not really get a substantial market share yet.
Biodiesel is available at many gas station but with no or very little advantage in the price.

Since I'm assumin that the Vegi-Diesel, Used vegetable oil craze hasn't hit over there yet have you given any thought to running it. Should be a steady supply of it available I would think. Over here it's all pretty much all called for since so many guys are usin it already.

Veggi-oil as an alternative fuel is known over here since years too, but is not playing a major role though. Since veggi-diesel require to be pre-heated before injection/burning some modifications are required to use it. I know a few guys who use it with older Chevy-Diesels, i.e. Blazer, K30, and the like, but I do not know ANYBODY using it with a Cummins.

With a seperate spare tank it seems to work well in the VP44 pumped trucks. By running a seperate tank that you can turn on and off you can have the truck warmed up before you turn the vegi tank on and turn it off a few miles before you shut down. With this it's not to bad to use. It takes some extra equipment to run strictly the vegi in the primary tank. Could save a lot of money in the long run if a guy was runnin down the road on a regular basis.

I looked into it here, but just to many guys already doin it and the oil is hard to come by.

According to a statistic that shows the development of diesel fuel prices the price in Nov '05 has been at 1,10 EUR/L; based on the conversion rate 1.2 of Nov '05 this would come out at 5.00 US-$/gal.

In Feb '05 the price for diesel fuel was even at 0.95 EUR/L only. Based on the conversion rate 1.32 of Feb '05 this equals to 4.75 US-$/gal!

Anyhow, today we just hit another record with seeing the diesel fuel price at 1.339 EUR/L (7.43 US-D/gal) !!!

Besdies, regular gas is at 1.439/L (7.98/gal) and premium is at 1.459/L (8.09/gal)

The prices are predicted to keep rising....
