Using B100 in a 2001 PSD

Anything I need to watch out for besides the fuel filter? I was hoping to find B20 or B50 here in Phoenix, but the single distributor here sells only B100. I'm planning on running it straight, or would it be a better idea to blend it with dino diesel?

What's the temperature in Phoenix right now? And how much are you getting B100 for?

It's 70 right now but it's been getting down in the 30s at night. Monday it barely made 60. I think parts of OH were warmer than us. I don't know how much B100 is but when I get it I'll post it here and let you know.

You may have problems if you run more than B-75 in winter. I'm in northern oregon and running B-75, it's been 25-27 here lately and I have no problems.
Used B-75 all last winter, NO problems. Most commercial bio is made from fresh oil so has very little smell. I make mine from used cooking oil and most people say it smell's like burnt fried chicken! FABMANDELUX.

I think I'm just gonna run it down as empty as I can and do a 50/50 mix of dino and B100. The truck stop I buy diesel from is only a few miles away from the bio place so it wont be too much of a hassle.

Let us know how you like it. I have'nt "dinoed" any engines yet, but "seat of the pants" feeling is slightly more power, and it sure runs smoother! FABMANDELUX.

Is there any truth to what people are saying about bio causing injector pumps to fail, or is that something Ford came up with to keep people from using biodiesel? Oh, and when I said "dino" I meant mixing 50% bio and 50% regular diesel or "dinosaur" diesel

Quaility Biodiesel will not harm any diesel. Most complants can be traced back to SVO or WVO, these will gum up IP's and foul injectors. Just adding 5% bio increases lubricity by 67 percent! Caterpiller is now EXTENDING coverage if b-100 is used. Ford is doing further long term testing on higher blends.FABMANDELUX.

I run B100 home brew with no issues here in PHX. I run it in both our PSD's. WSP actually sells B99. ( they have to B100 is considered a "fuel additive") it sell here for 2.85 a gallon. Yes you can fill up half way and then top off with dino and it will be just fine. I would tell you to run just the B99 and you will be fine. It doesn't get and stay cold long enough to have any issues here, with gelling etc.

Yeah, that's what I did. I'm about half way through my 1st tank of B99 from Western States and so far I really like it. There was one morning last week that it was a little stubborn to start, but it runs so quiet now it's hard to believe it's the same truck. As long as I can get over to where they're at to buy it I'm going to keep using it.
