7.3L Mystery Problem, neet help

I have a 2002 7.3L with an engine that will die periodically with no signs of why. I am 4000 miles on my most recent oil change. i run bio diesel and Vegetable oil in my truck. i have changed the Camshaft sensor. Every time it dies i get no codes whats so ever. The first time it happened i got a IPC code. But the engine failure has happened several times sense and i get no codes or check engine light.

Has anyone run into similar problems? Me and my mechanic are very confused and are not really sure where to begin. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
