I have never used Propel Fuels. It has no doubt that the <a href="#">renewable diesel</a> is best for our Fleets. I have many commercial fleets and now I am using renewable diesel fuel for my fleets and definitely, I save my fuel cost.

I was on a road trip earlier this month and asked the question about HPR Propel before I left. I stopped in San Jose and filled both tanks.

Mileage didn't really change, it was unbelievably quiet. It was quiet enough my wife commented. Seat of the pants tells me truck was a little peppier. I will use this stuff every chance I get.

For some reason my truck doesn't seem to run as well on B20. It runs better on Shell dino, but it definitely runs the best of Propel.

I also stopped in Eugene, Oregon at SeQuential. I used their B20 on the way to Seattle and their B99 on the way back down. Good stuff. It was like $2.84. Not Bad

I also stopped at Dr. Dan's biodiesel in Seattle. Almost $5 per gallon. Didn't realize that till after I started pumping and was wondering why the $$$ spent number was spinning like a slot machine. The place is classic though and my truck ran well....still Propel for some reason meshes with my truck.

I can get Propel in LA when I head down and will always plan to stress myself out and try to arrive there as empty as I can. LOL

I see that this thread has been around for a little more than 3 years, has anyone been brave enough or stupid enough as the case may be to feed this stuff to a 6.7?
If so how has that worked out. Live on the east coast but always interested in new technology, especially if it results in cheaper, cleaner fuel.

Propel's lit says its approved for everything diesel if my memory serves. Don't take my word for it though. It does work well in my 7.3

"Propel's lit says its approved for everything diesel"

Yea, I read that, but I keep going back to a quote from one of my favorite movies:

"They also said artificial sweeteners were safe, WMD's were in Iraq, and Anna Nicole married for love".

Just was curious if any one has actually tried it in a 6.7.

I’ve run maybe 6 tanks of it in my 6.7 I have not noticed any problems. I just stumbled across some threads about lubricicity on Bobs the oil guy. Has anyone running it in any other motor had HPFP problems?

To edit my last post, I looked at credit card statements and made 14 trips to a Propel Fuel station. I haven’t noticed any problems, but after stumbling on the thread regarding lubricity, I’m concerned, though the literature I read ahead of time stated it was good to go.

I've been running Propel in my '15 6.7 for over a year now without any issues. Currently the price is about the same or slightly less than the B20 here in SoCal. I only run other diesel when our road trips take us out of state. I downloaded their app on my phone so that I can find stations that carry it when I'm in an unfamiliar area. I'm getting the impression that CA is heavily subsidizing this fuel which is why the price is lower. I haven't noticed any difference in mileage or engine noise at this point, but I have noticed how clean it burns (smell). I had the truck idling in the driveway (which is bordered on both sides by house walls) and was going over the truck before a trip. I was fiddling with the rear camper tie down for a good 5 minutes before I realized my face was right next to the exhaust and didn't really smell a thing. Needless to say, I was very impressed. I hope that it will be available in other states soon.

A propel station is my closest gas station but there is 3 around me within a 5 mile radius luckily the neares one by me is the cheapest and almost always cheaper than regular diesel. I have been exclusively running HPR for 5 years on my 2006 6.0 without issues. Can’t go back to regular diesel smell. I can’t say much about performance, always felt about the same and gas mileage did not change much. But the smell is worth it in itself.
