2001-05 ANYBODY RUNNING BIODIESEL ??????

I'm hearing all kinds of stories, can one of you experts tell me if you can run biodiesel in the F250 ??? I'm talking more than 5% , you know 50,80 or even 100%. Can the injectors handle it , fuel lines, will I have to modify??? I'm in Charleston, SC and we have a couple of biodiesel plants here, one made with animal fat and the other with soybeans. Just want a Ford the other trucks don't do it for me. THANKS FOR ANY HELP!http://www.powerstroke.org/forum/ima.../icon_ford.gif

Yes I am currently running a B20 alternating with a B30 in my 05. Truck runs great. I have just found a source for good supply of veggie oil so I am either going into biodiesel production or going to do a Vegistroke conversion. It'll run fine on B100.

I've slamed about 1000 gallons through my 6.0L now. No issues and I just had the heads off for studs. Everything is clean and fine.

you should probably pick up some replacement fuel filters and carry them along, because BD will clean out any gunk inside your tank pretty quickly and may clog your existing filters. But aside from that you'll be just fine

WVO works fine

I run waste vegetable oil through my 02 F350. I built a separator to dump my WVO into then it gets filtered into another tank.

As mentioned above you will plug filters when switching to Bio as it will clean out your fuel system. I've plugged a few filters using WVO until I learned how to use it properly.

I mix it about 30% Diesel and 70% WVO right in my truck. I use kerosene if it is cheaper, I then run 10% to 90% WVO. My cousin has a Duramax and has lots more trouble than I do. You really should heat your fuel, even if you are running straight Diesel. It just gives you a better burn and increases mileage. Don't go and buy an expensive fuel heater you can build one that works fine for about 20 bucks.

Any time you are running any kind of Bio fuel weather it be Biodiesel or WVO always monitor your engine oil. Fat or veggie oil under pressure and heat will turn into rubber. If you have an older engine with lots of blow by and you get oil in your crankcase you will have rubber forming in your oil.

Water injection or a hydrogen module will help running Bio or WVO as the steam will prevent buildup on your pistons. If you are getting high quality Biodiesel you should have a clean running truck without the steam.
