Biomass Diesel Fuel

When driving back from Tenn. along I-75 I stopped at a Flying J too fuel up, and noticed they where selling "Biomass diesel blend" and it stated that it had 5-20% biodiesel fuel mixed in, is this going to be something that will start being added in all diesel fuel??? It sure would be nice not having to add fuel additives because of the low sulfur in the fuel.

I doubt they'll add it to all fuel, just certain stations. We already use enough of our food for ethanol . From what I've heard, your fuel mileage falls off using 100% bio, but I'm not sure how the lower grades would affect it

Depends on where you live. I know Mass has been talking about a biodiesel requirement in fuel for a long time... they already require all gas to be 10% ethanol cause back in the mid-2000's that was the cool thing to do.

They wont be able to require the bio blends for all diesels because it is not compatable with the early DPF systems, if I remember right the 6.4 cannot use any blend of bio unless dpf is deleted and the 6.7 can run a B20 blend. During the summer I brew my own bio and my truck loves it. I did notice running B100 I lost about 1-2 mpg but when I can make it for about a buck a gallon I can live with the decrease. If you own a new diesel with a dpf, make sure the manufacture states what blend you can use, if you own a 7.3, 6.0, cummins or duramax prior to the dpf requirement you can run bio with no problems.
