You shouldn't have to do anything to run bio diesel. Veggie oil is another story. That being said, buy a case of fuel filters to carry around. THe biodiesel acts like a solvent and breaks loose a bunch of sediment, etc. from the fuel system.

start at low blends B10 or B20, and then work your way up. That way, you won't overwhelm your fuel filter with too much of the old petrol gunk that will get cleaned out.
