Carry an extra fuel filter when you start because it your tank and lines are dirty it will clean them out and clog the filter. That never happened with my 05 and I ran a lot of mile with B99. Your truck will love the B20 and you won't believe how much quieter the engine gets.

Ok I wasn't sure because I didn't get any soon responses so I didn't fill it all the way up. Which filter clogs the most. On top of the motor or under the cab. So it's good to fill up with it?

My 04 stroke loves it. Its all I run in my truck. Truck is a lot smoother and I've noticed a slight MPG gain.

It cleaned out my fuel system SO well it clogged my filter after two full tanks and I had a very noticeable lag with it cause it was so clogged.
Personally, I never noticed a noise diff.

Well if its better for my motor then im gonna start filling up with it. It was 20 cents cheaper as well. I have access to farm diesel that gets used in all the tractors. Semi comes to the farm and fills it up like once a month. Just wish it wasn't illegal lol. Ive thought about it many many times

It'll be the filter in the HFCM. Biodiesel is the best lubricity agent and fuel system cleaner you can get. I wish I could still get the B99 here.

Is Bio supposed to be cheaper? Here in my town we have a wholesale fuel distributor that has it and I went by the other day and it was over $5 a gal!

That was probably something different.
But B20 has usually been 10 to 15 cents more than regular.
