I picked up some B100 not too long ago, just about 3/4 of a tank I noticed the truck being a bit quieter as well. As far as MPG's go, no change really, as near as I can tell. Smoke was less for sure. I would not mond running some more through the truck, the only problem is the Bio station is about 30 mins. from here. They are supposed to open one within about 10 miles of me at the first of July, once I run some in back to back tanks, I can comment a bit more. But so far at $2.59/gal I like it.

I've been running soydiesel for a little while in my truck and love it. I think the blend is either B11 or B15. The engine clatters less and seems to have a little more power and lugs better. I haven't noticed much about smoke, but mine didn't make enough in the first place. Even if it did, I'd still buy it. Anything to boost demand for soybeans!! That and it's about $0.16 cheaper than regular diesel is here because of a state tax break for diesel over 10%....

biodiesel makes the engine quieter because it has very good lubricative properties....better than sulfur. it makes less smoke because the bio part (usually soybean oil) burns very clean and easily because of high cetane. and the smell is the best part....in higher blends, you're exhaust will smell a little like french fries

the way i understand it more lubricity less hydrocarbons no sulfer and this kind smell like remote control air plane nitro fuel and soybeans. it does not smell like petro diesel at all.

I manufature my oen Bio-Desel, and have noticed a little a little MGG difference, the key is to monitore your filture in the terms of water and filter capicty.
