Has anyone tried using Bio diesel in the Kia Sedona?

I know it has a Delphi injection system which if I recall aren't as good as the Bosch system for running Bio Fuel.

Just wondered if anyone had tried it and whether they'd had any success or not?

Was thinking this myself but not sure how to obtain or if suitable.

My car is under warranty so not sure if its allowed see here->Bio Diesel Then look at the 7th menu option. I notice KIA is not there.

Regards

I mailed the guys at your link, they basically said any car can use the Bio diesel they sell as it complies with EN 590 diesel standard, but for anything in larger amounts he says we need to contact our manufacturer direct.

We have a Rix Fuel Station/garage in a village down the road from me. A few months back I saw a tanker delivering there with RIX BIO Diesel advertising all down the sides.

This garage however is attached to a haulage company and their fuel prices are one of the highest in the area... From what I see from the website it is probably blended and there claims are that they are recycling used material and blending it with mineral based stuff. Suppose this goes towards helping the environment except that we have to pay more!!
