Question about parts...kinda

I posted this in the general section and got no responses so I thought I would bring it to this forum:

I know Fords line on biodiesel in the 6.7 "Nothing more than B20 or engine / DPF damage could result".

Why when previous Fords (7.3 & 6.0. no experience with 6.4) ran B100 without issue why would they make it so that only B20 could be run in the new Powerstroke incarnation? Seems like we are going the wrong way here.

Has anyone here heard of anyone trying anything greater than B20 in their 6.7? I am curious if anyone who has done the DPF/EGR/DEF delete has tried this. I am guessing the "potential issues" has to do with all the new emissions junk.

Don't get me wrong; I am all for a cleaner burning truck. However, lets not hinder the trucks and have them get worse mileage than they are capable of by putting all this emissions junk on the trucks. Lets change the fuel. There are huge advancements in cleaner fuels just around the corner but there are plenty of them here now!

I like how the government forces the automakers to change and not do anything to the big oil companies! Sorry, got on my soap box for a minute there.

I think Ford's position on previous trucks was only B5. The trucks will run on B100, but it wasn't endorsed by Ford.

EDIT: I found this thread - It may be helpful
