50/50 diesel blend

i found some yesterday and it was $.20/gal less. how much less fuel economy should i see? i'm wondering if the loss will be worth the savings. I probably average 14 in the winter.

I know you'll lose some MPG, just not sure how much.... But as cold as the winters been here lately I could care less about my mileage, just so long as I don't gell up like I have twice already this year. I'd run it if I were you and have no worries all the way to -40* or so (actual temp).
