First 140 words of the document:

Biodiesel is a transport fuel oil made mainly
from organic vegetable oils. Biodiesel costs two
to three times as much to make as it costs to
produce fossil diesel. This is the reason why
the British Government has agreed to reduce
the fuel duty rate, so that the use of an
environmentally friendly
fuel may be promoted.
Biodiesel has been used in Europe and the
USA for many years.
There are over 1800 biodiesel pumps at filling
stations in Germany and Austria. It sells at a
price no greater than ULSD and sometimes a
promotional eurocent or two less.
In the main, biodiesel is made from fresh oil in
Germany and recycled oil in Austria. There is
no appreciable difference in the product.
