Question Bio Diesel

We just had a new staion open in Southern Pines NC offering Bio Diesel, the store is owned by a local Ford dealer. My question, can I run this fuel without any mods? Will it help fuel mileage? Thanks in advance

that is correct--- commercial biodiesel requires no mods. for info on biodiesel and fueling stations and specs go to www.biodiesel.org I run B20 in summer and B5 in winter. Ford stand is B5 for warranty

Welcome to FTE and the bio forum Lucky you Biodiesel is great for your truck! Try this site: http://www.biodieselcommunity.org first and ask as many questions here as you like. You will soon be converted, once you hear and feel how your truck runs you'll never go back

When was the last time you saw a tech pop your cap and smell your fuel? Do you really think they have troubleshooting classed like they did when my father was in school? And do you think they will send your fuel out for a astm test? You can put a gallon of dino in and contaminate enouph to smell dino stinky. These are all just ( a word I cant spell) retoricle . Anyway.
