I have a 2004 VW TDI. Are there any conversion needed to strat running BD or can I fuel it up and run BD. I live in Southern California, make my own BD. Have had it tested and has passed ASTM.
Volkwagens are great with biodiesel, except for the latest and "greatest" with particulate filters (2009, 2010). As far as I know the PD engines, like what you have, work just fine with bio and need nothing to burn it.

Hey, thanks alot UFO. I feel more at ease. In a few days I'll start filling it up.
Make sure your reaction is complete and doesn't finish in your fuel tank.
The 2004+ TDI's have an in-tank electric fuel pump that is weak to begin with and won't tolerate glycerin.
Other than that, I remember one guy complaining of leaking hose somewhere around the fuel pump under the hood. Ask at BioDiesel forum at tdiclub.com for recent experience.

If it's ASTM, there is no glycerine, soap or water to cause problems. If it's still reacting in your tank, you've got much bigger issues.
