Running bio is like drinking homemade whiskey, sometimes its real smooth, other times, you throw up as soon as you swallow it.

I wondered the same thing when I had the 6.4. My biggest concern would be the running the bio through the piezo injectors that are on the 6.4. I wish I had more concrete details or facts for you but I have heard that those injectors can be very sensitive. That is why Ford is so persistent on saying using USLD #2 only.

Ford says "5% Biodiesel, no more" in the 6.4L. The 6.7L allows 20%.

A lot of the stations near my place say may contain up to 5% biodiesel... I try to avoid it but that's just me
