Hi Carl,

Yes, theoretically you can run any diesel car on bio-diesel, but you need to be careful with where you're sourcing your fuel from - low quality bio-diesel can clog your injectors up. 

It's also worth bearing in mind that the environmental benefits of bio-diesel are somewhat unproven. There's quite a debate going on at the moment about whether the theoretically lower CO2 emissions outweigh the use of land for growing bio-fuel crops.
