Where to get SoyPower BioDiesel B100 or equivalent

This study has been cited many times on the org:

DIESEL FUEL ADDITIVE????

I've searched my fingers raw and haven't been able to find a source for SoyPower Biodiesel (number 1 on the list). I'd like to carry a few gallons around as an additive to increase lubricity.

Can someone point me to a source in Colorado?

Thanks.

I would just run 1oz per gal or 2 stroke. I dont believe what that study says 100%

I put 5% bio in the truck because that is all the truckstop sells. according to the study, that is all I need. If I add some 2stroke I notice my injectors are quieter and smoother. Even my girl who pays no attention to the truck has commented when I dont put the 2 stroke in. "why is your truck so loud today?!?"

Thanks tubular, any tips on which 2stroke to use? I saw someone comment on using no-ash or low-ash oil?

I really don't think it matters. Most of the time people will say ashless like the stuff from walmart. I can not see how it matters, but I am no expert. I know people that put motor oil in there to do the same. Don't have any way to quantify the results, just know it helps

Thanks. I just ordered Opti-lube XPD so I'll give that a try and compare it to 2stroke.
