Blending kero with bio

Blendibioterrorism with bio say 1 gallon for every 25, does it help the gel point? Just something I thought of when my tank gelled last time due to low temps running a pretty high bio content.

Go to the "Google Custom Search" up under the Powerstroke.org logo. Type in "Kerosene" - Should get some links to read on the subject.

Google Biodiesel blending.

Somewhere I have seen a chart showing the affects on B100 cloud point in respect to blending.

As a general rule of thumb, B80 should be good to +/- 25*F, depending on the feedstock used in production.

Kerosene in my opinion is not the best choice for blending. D2 would be a more economical choice. K1 has a low cetane rating, so D2 would be a better option. NEVER USE RUG, EVER. If one wants to burn gas, buy a gasser.

kero

I meant to say will blending 1 gallon of kero to 25 gallons of say b80 help the cloud point. I did a bunch of googling and it looks like it does help. The lubricity problems with kero are overcome by the positive ones of bio. There was a pretty good study that I found describing it.
