B100 in 2005 6.0?

Can I run it without any modifications? I just found a place in my area (Tampa, FL) that sells B100 and B20. Its considerably less expensive than #2, but I'm not sure if I can just fill my tank and not suffer any ill effects.

Thanks!

Ya you can run B100 no problems. I ran in it in my old 2004 for well over 100,000 miles and had no fuel related problems. Just keep a couple sets of fuel filters close by (like in the console) because the bio will clean out your fuel tank in hurry and clog your filters.

where did you find this place, because I'm in Clearwater, FL and wouldn't mind checking it out. What is the price for B100 there?

I haven't been over there yet and haven't made a phone call to them, but found the place on another website.

The place is called Aztech Fuels and is at 1717 Busch Blvd in Tampa. Their number is 813-971-1717.

Open 10-6 M-F.

No idea what they're selling B100, but I'm going to call and find out.

Well, I called and left a message yesterday. No call back. Called several times today and never reached anyone. Drove out there anyway and the place was locked up tight. Noone to be found anywhere.

Awesome.

Sounds like business isn't going to well for them...

Oh well, I'm looking at doing the whole vegistroke thing anyway, so that will help. Plus if it doesn't, I'll just ride my 150cc "Turbo Air Cooled" scooter like I have been the past 2 months! I've already saved about $800+ these past 2 months

p.s. - keep me posted should you get in contact with them

Will do. And I just ordered the V3 from vegistroke.com. Should be here in 4-6 weeks and installed not too long after that (if you're interested in taking a look).

Houston. A crappy place to visit and even worse place to live
