Question Biodiesel in 2000 7.3

What level of biodiesel is ok for the 7.3? I don't want to add any mods to tank or fuel system...just pump and go. I live in Las Vegas, so no problem with cold or wet weather a being a problem to the fuel.

I have just begun to research bio diesel so I don't really know. If you don't get any answers here post it on the bio-fuel forum on here.

My father's 2000 7.3 ran just fine on biodiesel. Just changed the fuel filter.

I have a 1995 that I have run over 13,000 miles so far on B100 and waste vegtable oil with no issues besides a few filter changes and thats due to me poorly filtering the oil. If you are buying it at the pump, pump it and go!! no mods needed.
