B-5 Diesel

Does this type of diesel provide the type of lubrication that is ideal for what our 6.0 liter needs? I saw a study that recommended 2% soy Bio diesel for the optimum lubrication. So I know that Oregon sells 5% Bio, is this similar to what is tested in the study @ 2% soy? B-5 is the standard at all fueling stations in Oregon.

Clarification Please Anyone?
See study graph Page 2

2 Stroke oil?

5% is going to have more lubrication do to the higher soy content then 2%.
