Anyone have problems running green diesel?

I have a 2012 6.7 and would like to run green diesel. I'm looking to see who is running it and what if any difference it makes.

I need some feedback fellas

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

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???

Send a message via Yahoo to wvrrcarknocker
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.
