    GTL fuel

Technical information WWW.SHELL.COM Shell has conducted many field trials on Shell GTL Fuel in major cities around the world over the past decade, covering... reads ok with advantages to all, with possible exception to being a few pence a litre more, but seems to eliminate the FAME problems that people are experiencing, my only fear is that gas oil/derv is a lubricant and I need assurance this alternative will not damage my engines both old and newer

  8. J the idea is sound, a while ago we tried, as a trial, chipping whole tree and brash for an estate similar as your site, the chip was ok for their boiler, they did pass it through the grain store drying facility 1st, good luck with sorting
