Bio

Just curious about anyone's experience with biodiesel and what blend you run. I've had my psd for 2 years now and never gave it much thought till recently I was doing some reading about it. It has better lube properties and higher cetane numbers. The only drawback I see is it can gel up before petro diesel. Thanks in advance for your feedback

Only draw backs I ever herd was keep a couple fuel filters cause it will clean your fuel system out fast

I ran 100% bio for a while this summer before my trans blew up. Only changed the fuel filter once, and i don't even think it needed it then. Also ran quite a bit through our D-max and haven't changed the filter since. My truck ran way smoother, quieter, and nicer.

Only draw backs are it will gel up below 40*, and both the trucks had some white smoke/unburnt bio at every cold start.

Ya I checked out the bio section and there was a lot of info on there. I guess my main concern was if anyone had cold start probs with our 7.3s I'm pushin 300k and she's already grumpy on those cold mornings. I'm goin to fill up with it next time and add some power service. I'll post any changes I notice. Thanks a lot for the replies.

I would strongly advise not even touching it this winter. At most i'd run maybe a 10-20% blend.

The strongest they sell is B5. Would that be ok?

Yes, because thats basically regular diesel and what a lot of stations sell. Its 5% bio, 95% diesel, which means it'll be fine to run in the winter.
