93' IDI- Your thoughts on using BIO.

I have a 1993 F250 4x4. I'm thinking of running BIO. My friend makes it for his Chevy Diesel and has offered me to try a tank. If I like it, he says I can have all I want. My truck is still stock, with factory injector pump etc... 292,000 miles and still running smooth. Should I chance it or not?

Wow, an IP lasting that long is a very rare occurance. I say go for it.....you are way paste the overdue time for the IP to fail, so your not really chancing anything cause it will fail sooner or later at this point. Your truck will run way better on Bio as well, and since it has better lubricity, I bet you can sqeeze some more miles out of that IP. But if I were you I would start saving up for a new IP and injectors. Usual life span is 100K miles so yeah, your almost 200% over that.

Biodiesel conversion items

For a '91 F-250 4x4 auto that I use, the mechanic & I went over three biodiesel related items:
1.Check/changeout your engine compartment fuel lines to handle biodiesel;
2.Check/cleanout the fuel tanks for any prior crud
3.Expect to change your fuel filter due to prior crud/varnish buildup.

The mechanic will do other unrelated work:
1. Zoodad mod
2. Amsoil oil & filter change
3. new tires & rims
4. aligment
5. steam clean motor
6. wash & wax.

So far we budgeted $800 for all of this.
