Can I just dive into it? (B99)

Beside the issue of it cleaning the system out and clogging the fuel filter....

Can I just dive into it and run B99 in my 6.0?

That is plenty warm. It depends on the bio, but once you start seeing 45 or colder, you'll want a stronger blend with diesel.

Been running biodiesel .... i have a 04 6.0 runs great. i ran 3 tanks plus 2 on regular.. then i decided to change my filters. no issues.

i'm in CA at night it gets in the low high/low 40's. but its good quality bio.

Jumped in

After reading this thread and others I decided to take the plunge. Had little over a quarter of a tank of regular diesel and I went to the shop to fill up with bio. Talking with the guy there he pretty much reiterated everything that I had read. One thing I could not find was if I still should use sea foam additive. The attendant said I did not have to. That this was one of the perks of bio. Can anyone confirm this?

depends on what you want seafoam to do but I dont think there is anything that bio wont clean out.

very rare to find someone with a powerstroke running bio since they dont get the best mpg's. I've made it before but it took too long. I just bought a a V3 and an absolute centrifuge and next truck I buy is going to be the guinea pig for straight waste motor oil instead of vegetable oil using the V3.
