biodiesel users poll

At what percent biodiesel are you using on a regular basis? There has been a lot of discussion on this and thought we should get a feel for what was the most popular

I get Soy Diesel from Agriland FS that is 10% and love it. In Western Iowa, the Co-Op and FS stations have Soy Diesel, but it varies from 2% - 15% depending on the station. Here it is 1 cent per percent soy cheaper than regular diesel.

I will leave it here until Monday and then move it to the 7.3 forum, that way we should get a good sampling.

I can't find any in my area. I would love to try it. We have many farmers in our family so I think it's a great idea.

Wish I could get it...

I'm a big fan of Bio-Diesel and wish that we as a country could role it out on a large scale. It would be good to have all the OTR trucks running BioDiesel. I don't believe its available (Washington DC) in my area, if it were I would run it!

A friend of mine just bought his first PSD and the mechanics told him that Ford that does not recommend BioD in for the 6.0.

I'm trying to decide if he heard them right or if something else was in play.

Ford doesn't recomend Bio-Diesel to protect themselves from the unregulated "Home Brew" fuels. Ford also doesn't build the diesel engines they use either.

The Soy Diesel you buy at the pump is safe to use in your diesel. It has to meet the same minimum standard as any other fuel being sold. Soy-Diesel is better for the environment because it uses the Soybean oil to replace the sulfer as a lubricant. Soy-Diesel will also help clean any your tank (this is what can plug your filter the first time you use it. Not the Fuel, but the dirt that was in your tank already.) Our FS runs there fuel tanker on 100% Soy Diesel with no problems.

Ikold, go to www.biodiesel.org for fueling locations in the DC area. I looked and found 6 in Maryland and 12 in Virginia. 3 in De. Hope this helps.
