Can I use biodiesel in my car?

Volkswagen Group does approve the use of diesel fuel containing up to 5% Biodiesel in all of its diesel vehicles. Filling station forecourts supply diesel (to the standard EN590), which can contain up to 5% Biodiesel with 95% Fossil fuel. The use of this fuel requires no modifications to the vehicle or changes to the vehicles' maintenance schedule. For full details on the use of Biodiesel within Volkswagen Cars please download the Biodiesel Statement.
