On Wednesday September 21, 2006, the carpooling association launched a cyberaction: a petition to legally drive with pure or crude vegetable oil (HVP / HVB) in our diesel engines.
The 8 European Directive may 2003 ( visible here ) indicates that :
"Member States shall bring into force the laws, regulations and administrative provisions necessary to comply with this Directive by 31 December 2004 at the latest. They shall forthwith inform the Commission thereof. (Article 7) "
This is a directive that is required against the French laws since January 1 2005!
That is to say that the French government, like other European countries must "promote the use of biofuels or other renewable fuels in transport"
