    Without wishing to sound too much like Corporal Jones in Dads Army...... According to a reliable source, namely the fuel delivery driver with whom I wanted to order tractor diesel, there is no red diesel at all to be had from Stanlow in Cheshire. No doubt this is a temporary issue but...

    Red or white

    Have had builders in to help build retaining wall with rocks that have been ploughed up in the past. He has asked if I could supply some for his next job. Would be using tractor and trailer so would I have to be on white diesel?

    JD 6900 Diesel getting into the engine oil

    Our old faithful 6900 (14000 hours) is gaining oil level in the engine, doesn't look like cooling fluid because the oil has no discoloration, just much thinner than it should be so assuming it has to be diesel getting in. Am I right in thinking the only point of entry could be fuel injection pump?

    Janet Hughes DEFRA Missing in action?

    With the sign up deadline for the SFI pilot looming and with the level of suspicion surrounding the contract on offer I find it odd that there has been no sign of @Janet Hughes Defra since 7th October to answer questions. If seems a strange time to abandon communication by DEFRA and even...

    Running only petrol on a Farmall M

    I have recently acquired a Farmall M series (1940’s) and shown the 2 fuel tanks - smaller for petrol to start and larger for diesel to run.
