wanting to run bio, 7.3 or will a 6.0 work?

I have a cummins and it runs great with 100% bio,
Wanting to get back to an excursion and really liking the 04 and 05, but one thing that is important to me is the biodiesel. I know the 7.3 has no problems but looking for actual 6.0 owners to chime in on this. No debate please, just real world reports.

I have been running a 75% bio blend for a year without any issues. I have ran 100% many times in the past especially in the summer. I make the bio myself, and make sure it is well washed, dried and filtered. 2005 6.0L

I know of several 6.0 owners who have put many many miles on WVO. Surely if the 6L can take that, it can tolerate quaility B100.

Sorry, I do not yet own a 6L, but I will in the near future. It will be fed a steady diet of B100 year around. This is not fitst hand experience, however, I am not going to hesitate to burn quality B100.
