Product description
Passenger car.
Risk
The use of biodiesel fuel blends may lead to increased engine oil level due to fuel dilution of the engine oil. If the engine oil level rises over the maximum level as indicated by the oil level gauge on the instrument panel it may eventually reach a level where the oil could enter the cylinders and act as fuel. In a worst case scenario this may lead to maintained or increased engine speed, potentially leading to engine breakdown. If this happens while driving it may lead to a road accident.
