B20 Biodiesel

Hey everyone, just taking my lunch at work and was bored so I was looking up Bio-Diesel. Come to find out that we have a pump here in town that offers B20 blended bio-diesel. What's the scoop with that stuff, like is it safe to run? I heard people run it in the summer and go back to normal diesel in the winter. Is there any harm in running it in my 05 (stock)? Also is there any power loss when running bio compared to normal? Thanks!

I run it in the summer with no issues, Make sure you maintain your fuel filters, The bio will clean the system some what. Its only 20 percent bio. Here its the same price as diesel, no real benefit other than more lubricants in the fuel. In colder temps in has likes to gel.

There is a thread on 6.0 motor problems forum in here that talks about alternative fuel, mainly used atf fluid, it is a long thread but somewhere in there is a link to a test that was conducted by a lab with most of the diesel addative companies paying for their product to be tested. The number one fuel lube that had the least engine wear was soybean biodiesel, way less wear than the amer. motor assc. standard. 2 stroke motor oil was also at the top, diesel clean wasn't very good and my favorite (till now) marvels mystery oil was really bad when it comes to wear prevention. I used to wouldnt buy bio because you get less mpg but i do now for the wear prevent.
