Yeah you can run it no problem. I would suggest stepping up your fuel filter change intervals as the bio is a great solvent/cleaner and will loosen up anything currently stuck in your fuel system.

So wouldn't it be a good idea to run a tank or two every once in a while to just clean it out? I had not realized there was no other modifications required to run the Bio.

i wasnt sure, ive heard people running the b20 grade and b5 grade, and seeing that there a mix of reg diesel and bio i would think they would be ok, so has anyone here run it in the OBS PSD, and TxAG'97 i only have one thing to say, GO LONGHORNS!!!

You better watch out with those comments we are looking better and better with every passing moment. Of course you can't get much worse than our performance last season but no matter how you look at it you t-sips are in trouble this year. You have to come to College Station to play some hungry AGs.

And oh I almost forgot Gig'em!
