Bio fuel, good or bad?

Does any one run veg ol in a 6.0? I know lots of people who use it in 7.3, some use as much as 70% veg ol in their mix.
Thanks for our thoughts.

A 6.0 can reliably be fueled by WVO. Cleanliness of oil is imerative, as well as well engineered system with a failsafe feature to eliminate the potential for low fuel pressure.

Many on the attached forum are successfully doing it:

When you say mix, I am very alarmed. Mixing VO and D2, RUG, piss, vinegar, pixie dust,etc is NEVER safe or wise in ANY engine. I can tell you that it will NOT work long term in a 6.0.

Long term blending VO and D2 or other fuels could result in a Cummins swap, if you are lucky.
