Biodiesel power

I'm intrigued by Biodiesel.

Can Biodiesel make as much power as commercial diesel?

Yes!
Also has a higher lubricating property than diesel so less internal friction.People often say it makes MORE power but that is misleading.
Iy has less friction so the assumption is that it makes more power but i have run many blends of Biodiesel and pure B100 and while it ran smoother i would say power is same.
I would love to dyno test same truck with regular diesel and B100 to scientifically find out.
Would have to drain tank and all that but would be a good experiment.
