First time use

I found a place locally , I'm in the Kansas City area for awhile, that has B20. Thinking about going down and trying a tank in my well used 89 F350 don't know if it is a great idea. I understand it may affect ruber in seals etc. plus it may loosen up "sludge" that is sure to be present in my 17 year old tanks. Are these legitimate concerns? Would it be best to steer clear for now? I am on a road trip and the last thing I need is self induced problems.

Thanks for your thoughts.

Mark

B-20 should not be any concern, but I would carry a spare fuel filter. B-20 does not seem to affect fuel lines from what I have observed.

That's good to know. I visit the KC area several times a year. Mind sharing the location?
