    What diesel do you use?

    Not sure if this is the correct place to post this . Just wondering what diesel people use and if they notice any difference in performance, mpg , and how often your van does a DPF regen by using diesel from different fuel stations.

    Overthinking buying an ICE van?

    Hi Newbie alert! Can't see any discussion on the future of van life regarding green issues. I am looking at buying a 2/3-year-old van or maybe new, but unlike my father in law who bought his type 2 new in 1972 and handed it down his son, are the more modern vans that are not classics yet going...

    The book says diesel with lowest sulphur is best. I put in some BP Excellium by mistake,as I would usually go for the standard diesel. But then it got me thinking that maybe this would be better for the van to use it all the time. The other big fuel maker/providers do their own sort of thing...
