B100

This may or may not be the right forum for this question but can B100 be run out of the stock tank or is a heated in bed tank required? I assume the tank needs to be heated but i am not sure. And if it can be put into the stock tank at what temp should one discontinue use?
Thanks for your help guys and gals
Mike

You can run it in the stock tank with no problems. Just carry a couple of spare fuel filters with ya. Depending on how many miles your truck has on it will clean the crud out it the first few tanks and possibly clog your fuel filter. You will need to blend it when the weather get down into the 30's. I have run B100 as low as 35 or so with no problems.

Probably but I would do like I have done in the past. Use some jars or whatever see through containers you got at the house and fill them with different ratios and put them in the fridge and see how they do. I know when I put a jar of B100 in my fridge (about 34 degrees) turn solid. I don't remember what 50/50 did, it was a couple of years ago when I did this. I always left a jar with B100 outside on my porch during what they call "winter" here and look at it in the morning to see when it jelled.
