B100 In Tacoma

CFN station on Hwy 99 in Fife (just south of Tacoma Wa) is carrying B100. Current price $2.71 - You don't have to be a member and pumps will accept Visa/MC debit or credit. Station is just off I-5 at Port of Tacoma exit by Flying J. They have regular diesel as well so you can mix as I do.
Station is open 24hrs . Be sure and stop by if your needing some.
Reg diesel is about $2.56.

Well I am trying to keep it around 20% bio but since I will be be mixing this manualy I don't know how thats going to work as I will have residule left over in the tank on each fillup. Will probley just put in 5gal bio each fillup for a while then at some point not put any in and just run a full tank of dino to bring the % back down. It's an experiment right now that I still need to work out the logistics on. Would like to run B20 and have read some guys running on B80 for the 6.0L without any problems but I don't have pre-mix avail and am a little nervous getting to much bio since I only got 14K on my 04.

Thanks! I hear there is a station in South Seattle. If I can find it I might try the 20% mix though I'm running a new rebuild on a 7.3 IDI and probably don't have as much to be concerned about as you do. Does the 80% Dino raise the gel point enough so a person doesn't have to worry about it or should a person keep one tank 100% Dino and run on it long enough before shut down to make sure the bio is purged from the filter and injectors?

Try this web site for more info in the NW area on biodiesel
http://www.nwbiodiesel.org/default.a...odieselNetwork

I don't think gelling is that big of problem with bio particularly if you have any amount of dino mixed in - even without dino I know lots of these VW drivers are running B100 with no mods to the vehicles. I do know when you first start running bio, it will clean out the fuel system and fuel tank and you will need to change fuel filters a couple times after running it thru. Mine is due for new filters soon anyways so was going to run a couple more tanks thru before I changed them. I would assume once you have got most of the dino gunk out and keep bio in the system you should be able to change filters on reg sched (15K).

www.Biodiesel.org lists a few additional Washington biofuel locations not shown on the NW site.
