Arrow running bio in 6.0

so i just noticed a gas station by my house has a sigh that said bio diesel. dont know what number. and i dont even know how much it is per gallon

can i run this in my truck without changing anything? will my truck hate me if i switch? and how does it run? my truck is only slightly modified nothing crAZY 4" mbrp turbo back, intake,and sct tuner thats it.
also does bio gel easier? so i would have to run additives. im in Iowa so it gets damn cold here. its gonna be in the negatives this week.

Yes, you can run biodiesel, no problems.

Treat it the same as you would regular #2 in the cold. I'd suggest using PowerService's Diesel Fuel Supplement

I would think that if they just started selling it in the winter that it is like b2-b5. But check into that i'm just guessing. even b2 is enough to increase the fuel lubricity higher than what fuel additives can so it is good for your injectors.

i used to make bio dies. from used veg oil. have run it in 7.3,6.0 and 6.4. i always mixed it with reg diesel 50-50. truck will run ok, but it will gel in cold weather. no fun being stuck on side of road

we run it on my Air Force base and its nothing but trouble esp in the cold. shorter shelf life, sumer blend gels around 40 deg winter blend is mixed with keroseen, its corrosive, huge problem with coking i have never seen so many injector problems in my life all makes and models. Plus cost more. but yes you can run it and ours has a 50 cetane rating so it has good power

Send a message via Yahoo to Granny
After doing some research on what it can do to the oil, I will no longer run it in The Granny Truck. It is more likely to gel during cold times than #2diesel. I know there are folks on here that will come along and totally disagree with me and they know way more than me on this subject, but that is my opinion.
