my 6.7 is only rated to run B20 or less so I doubt I'd be putting B99 in it anytime...

I wouldn't run it if it were me, our trucks are only rated for B20 like Javi1 said and on top of that I think there is two much chance of getting water in the system with Bio-Diesel. I know there are some that run Bio in there trucks but I wouldn't do it with the sensitive fuel systems our trucks have.

blieux1 is starting off with a positive reputation.
I run anywhere from 40% to 100% of my home made bio in my 2011 with no problems.

"rated" from Ford...you can run B99 in nearly any diesel motor. Older vehicles had issues with rubber parts, but newer vehicles have no issues.

And you're gonna buy me a $10K fuel system rebuild when Ford says... Nope you ran Bio-diesel in excess of B20..... Dumb butt, we even put a badge on the side of the truck to remind you....

Just another stupid government program.... like spending billions to breed cows that don't fart...

PITS is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.PITS is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
I made a run hauling 8K pounds of explosives out to west Nebraska the other day. Flat, freeway driving with no real wind at all and very hot. Fuel stations get few and far between out there and as I got closer and closer to "E" I started looking...............and looking...............and looking for a station along the freeway. Finally found one with 12 MTE on the lie-o-meter....BUT, it was bio-diesel (B-20)

My truck was a bio-virgin.

Reluctanltly, I put only enough in to get back to civilization (so I thought), made my drop, and headed back east. I lost .5 MPG now with an empty trailer and no headwind. Pulled into the station with 9 MTE...sweating.

The bio-diesel was $3.91 and Ultra Low #2 diesel was $3.52

Filled it to the brim and watched my mileage creep back up all the way home.

Never again if I can help it.
