B100

Was just wondering if I can run B100 without modifications. The station in town offers B100 for $1.00 less a gallon, they also have B80.

Yes as long as its not below freezing. Also carry an extra fuel filter along for a bit. B100 will clean anything and everything out of your fuel system

Well it's still getting below freezing here at night, so I'll wait a month before I switch over, and switch back to my current B20 when it starts getting cold again. Thanks

Who has B100 for $1 less than #2? So it's what, 3.40ish


Looks like I'll be making weekly trips to NorthBend for fuel

A place in Issaquah had B99 for $3.60.

North Bend has B50 but it's more expensive.. Like $4.00 I think.

I'm going to try out some B50 from The Grange Supply in Issaquah, and if all goes well I'll be going to B100. It is where my friend gets B50 for his TDI, and he hasn't had problems with it. so...

I would use it once it starts staying in the 60 degree range consistently. B100 tends to start gelling before 32*

Depends on the feedstock. Good quality B100 will have problems below 35F and actually its a cumulative effect meaning if it doesn't get below freezing but stays near 35F for a week then you will have issues with it starting to gel.
