The journey has begun...

Kenny and Marc set out yesterday morning. They picked up some Biodiesel in Ashford before getting the ferry across to Dunkirk, as Vegetable Oil is an illegal fuel in France. The drove a few miles East into Belgium, where straight vegetable oil is legal provided you buy it from the right place.

They camped in Namur in Belgium and filled up with rapeseed oil at a farm in the morning. I had a text from them at 2pm BST (3pm European time) saying they were passing through Luxembourg on their way to the Black Forest, which is their next stop.

The car is running very well and they are getting very good fuel economy (mpg).
