Re: Biodiesel/Bioethanol section?

Look, stop arguing about it will you! Unless of course you want a section to discuss it in - if not, get out of the thread

Re: Biodiesel/Bioethanol section?

just to add another angle

where would a stilo(or whatever model) driver ask about bio diesel in a stilo?
the biodiesel section or the stilo section?

Unless the satnav is Connect Nav+ then I would move it back to the Stilo Technical section.

Re: Biodiesel/Bioethanol section?

there are loads of great forums and guides about this subject so we dont really need a section, and if we did have one it would have less info than a fairly crap forum dedicated to this topic.

however it would have an advantage because we would have one place to collect all fiat specific informaiton and experiences. most forums are generic for all car makes so you dont know certain things until you try, for example does your fuel pump have seals that will perish with certain biofuel additives? can your injectors manage svo? these questions can only be answered by experience and experimentations, so it would be good to collect this info to share.

do we really need a new section for it? i dont think so. is there an existing section that would be suitbale for it? i dont think so.

it seems a subsection can be added for anything these days, even photography (aka imaging), so i dont think it would hurt to have a biofuel subsection in 'lets talk fiat'. that seems the best place for it because its generic to all fiats, technical & factual- same as much of the material in 'lets talk fiat'.

it will take time, but eventually that section could grow to the point where there is no need to do further research, which is handy because 80% of members dont seem to realise you can use other websites for research or that google even exists.

Re: Biodiesel/Bioethanol section?

I think it would be a good idea...

...but...

There isn't even enough demand for a specific section to cover all "general motoring" topics (https://www.fiatforum.com/site-ideas...g-section.html) let alone something like this which is really rather specialist (especially with modern engines). Lots of people seem only to post in the section relative to their car.
