No in exactly 3.25 miles the motor will seize.





























































































:r ofl: My truck has been a vegitarian since I bought it, and it works great. Read through the Bio/Alternative section there are probably 200+ people on this forum that are using Bio from IDI fords all the way up to 6.0s.

Sure! Some places will allow you decide what the blend is. I've run B99. No problems. Drove from Bend, OR to Sacramento, CA on it. Ran smooth as dino diesel. Fuel mileage calculated out to about 1/2 mile a gallon better.

typically after the first 2nd or 3rd tank of it you have to change your fuel filter becuase Bio is like a big colon cleanser and dislodges all the years of built up algae. But after that you are good to go. The only other time it will plug a filter is when you run it too cold in the winter and it is gelled, but in that case the truck probably wouldnt start in the first place.

in point its as safe as diesel to run, in mild climates. If you can get it cheaper or make it cheaper than pulling up the pump you are good to go. If its costs more or about the same you are just wasting your time.
