can i use bio diesel in my 412D?

hi all,
im in the UK and wondering if i can use biofuil in my van, she is a 1996 412D. do i have to fit anything? Also its from a biofuil company so its not the smelly stuff :P
i can get it for £0.90 a litre not the normal £1.48 a litre. so it would be great if i could!!!!!

cheers will

Have never heard about 412D, but being 96 it is likely having injection pump, so no problem running even on 100% bio.

BS. It is McDonalds french fries
I got used to the smell running bio few years back and now can tell when I have been stiffed with high percentage of it in regular diesel.
The law doesn't require gas station to make it clear what they are selling at the pumps and the only mandatory is small label somewhere in the corner that gives you what % of the stuff you are pumping is actual fuel. Sometimes it is good idea to find this label and read it.
