Edit: looks like I should be able to run b100 fine on a stock 06', but will just mix to about b20 for now.
No modifications to the truck to run B100. The truck loved it. After 4 1/2 months running B100 when I ran my first tank of ULSD I couldn't figure out why my truck was making so much noise. It was so quiet on the B100 I forgot how noisy they are on ULSD. I would go ahead and step it up to B100 in steps. B20, B50, B100. That's the way I started just to ease my mind. After running B100 the first time I just kept using that. Plus it was cheaper than the ULSD.

Wish I lived where BioD was plentiful......
Yeah it depends on the feedstock used what the cloud point will be. I have heard of folks running cannola based bio in single digits. The only commercial bio where I live was pretty much done by the end of Oct and had a fairly high cloud point. As of this year the only commercially available bio in Baltimore is no longer selling it because they tried to lay all kinds of additional licensing fees on them this year.
