taxed on-road diesel is green diesel... it can also be yellowish depending on the additive package

I guess I'm confused as to what you're looking for

its the "green" biodiesel made from animal fat and used cooking oil. Not a petroleum based diesel

What does the manual say about types of diesel to be used?

There is a section for wvo and other biofuels located in the specialty forums section. I'd link it but it's a pain on the mobile app. I think that is what you are looking for

I've seen the used oil home home made blends thread. I'm talking about using industrial refined green petroleum free diesel. Made in a Boidiesel Refinery. Processed ready to go. Not a home blend. All I found in my manual was a sectio saying B20 (20% biodiesel blend) can be used. Anything over 20% can possibly cause engine and exhaust catalyst failure not covered in my warranty.

If these trucks are so dam environmentally friendly why can't we run straight biodiesel???

Because it damages the sensitive emissions control equipment designed to operate on Diesel and up to a B20 blend. It may also be that your fuel system is not designed to adjust to the higher solvent biodiesel blends. If I were you, I would stick to B20 and below while you have a warranty, but, it is your truck and your money.
