Question Questions About Bio Diesel

Hi, a local station announced over the radio they will be the first in the county to offer Bio Diesel for sale. My questions are this: My Ford manual says I can run bio diesel up to a 10% concentration; 05 Ford 6.0 Dually. Is that spec just a safe leval or can I run a higher % with just a stock fuel system.

Thanks John

If your warranty is up you can use B-100 if you wish.

You can run higher BUT if you have a problem Ford will deny engine warranty work. Hate to loose a 100K warranty. Go to www.biodiesel.org for more info and fueling sites.
