BP fuels

I heard from a friend who works at Ford that if you use fuels other then BP ford will no longer warranty your fuel system. Supposedly it even says to use only BP fuels in all 6.0 and 6.4 manuels. I have heard that the biodiesel content in the other companies fuels are gelling and hardening in the lines and causing the tanks to peel on the inside.
Has anyone else heard or experienced this?
I know in my area there are very few BP stations that carry diesel fuel so I can't see how ford can require one brand of fuel.

yah, I see no way they would be able to do that -- they can't require a certain fuel station b/c that station won't be all over and everywhere...

I think you can call that bunk (but ya might just read your manual to see what it says about it (I have a 7.3, or would quote you mine)

I saw a show on the discovery channel about pipelines. They said that all of the major companies share the use of the same pipelines. Each company pipes in a certain amount of gallons in one end and gets a certain amount out of some other end but there was no way that they would end with the same product. They said that the only difference between each companies product was the additives that where added after delivery.

The only BP in my area is very low volume on diesel. I use the ones the truckers use to make sure it's not old stuff.

When I talked to my friend at ford he says it has some thing to do with the percentage of bio diesel that some companies are adding to the fuel. It may be only his dealership that is not going to do the repairs under warranty. I'm not sure if his meeting was just his dealership or with people from ford.
I find it very hard to believe myself. But I have noticed all the newer fords have a lable on the fuel cap to use BP fuel.

I don't know of ANY BP with diesel in my tampa area. But That is interesting that ford has a label to use BP fuel on newer models.
