Bio-Diesel (I dont own a deep fryer)

Is anyone actually running this stuff? If so what is it like and how does it perform. I'd love to here anything on this subject. It just makes me a little nervous to know there is some peanut oil burning in my truck.

Why not it burns cleaner and runs better if at the very least just the same as it did with diesel. The problem I have is that I can only get it in B2 around here and nothing more as of yet but I was told that they will be carrying B20 sometime this summer so I can't wait.

i've heard things like funny smells. Someone even said it smells like the carnival. Is the mileage the same and how many tanks have you ran.

Probably want to check out the Alternative Fuels, Hybrids and Increasing Mileage forum.
They have quite a number of interesting threads on the subject.
There are a few guys on here running bio-diesel.
