B-20

Hey there are some gas stations around here that are starting to get B-20 bio-fuel (80% diesel, 20% biofuel). Its like around ten cents cheaper than normal diesel. Would this be ok to run in my tank, or would i be better to spend the couple extra cents and keep the truck runnin forever.

See who makes it, if its a reputable blender, buy it, your truck will like it and it has more lubrcation for those injectors.
A less reputable blender may be selling water laden fuel (bio) and you don't want that. If your truck is older, you will experience the fuel lines being washed of any varnishes and deposits as Bio is a solvent that will clean your fuel system...resulting in faster glogged filters at first so if you run Bio, be ready to change those filters sooner for a little while.

as Chenery said, if it is good bio, it wont hurt a thing, in fact i wouldnt be scared of B100
One thing though, plan on doing a fuel filter at 5k, next one at 10k, then back to normal 15k intervals at first. Bio cleans any gunk out of the lines and initially plugs fuel filters faster till all the gunk is cleaned out..
