ULSD vs. B20

OK, so I have been thinking about which one is going to be better for my 6er. I know the ULSD gets worst milage, and does not lube as well, and you have to put stuff in at least everytime or every other time you fill up. And the B20 is not recomended by ford and will not cover injectors and such if they test your fuel. But, it lubes better, and cleans out the junk in your lines. After a few extra fuel filters, you would be good to run it. So, which would be better to run, since the ULSD is more and more prevalent?

Ford will allow B5 and that is available to buy at some locations You can buy B100 in a 55 gallon barrel and simply mix your own B5 by adding about 2 gallons B100 to a 30 gallon tank of ULSD

And likewise you can add about 500 ppm of straght wesson oil (vegi oil) to a tank of diesel for the lubrication properties it provides.

b5 would be 1.5 gallons in a 30 gal tank.

Given I have a 7.3 but I have run a lot of b100 with virtually no problem. I now splash in about 3 gallons of b100 with 20 gal #2. This summer I will up it back to b100 depending on availability.

Ford wont warrant higher concentrations largely due to the total lack of regulation on it. There is now way to know if the guy made it in his backyard or bought good commercial ASTM standard fuel.

'97 F-350 CC 4x4, 91K, 4" turbo back, Tymar intake, rhino liner, formerly running B-100 now around B20, AM Phantom gauges (hate them), electrified AC mod, 203* thermo, Edge Evolution, HPX. Fumoto valve waiting to go on...

Something I just found out in the latest Diesel Power mag, their is a site you can go to find the nearest biodiesel place, the site is: Biodiesel Fueling Locations just type ina city & state or zip and it'll find the closest places, only thing is it won't differentiate between filling stations and distributors.
