Do I need Diesel Kleen with B-20 or B-50

I finally found my local BD distributor. I am starting with B-50 and may go to B-20 depending on if I want to visit the "hood" more often.
I was using DK with straight dino 16 oz per 24 gal tank. Should I shelve the rest of DK until I am stuck running with 100% dino? For that matter what about B-99?

1999 F250 7.3

Thanks

Put it under the seat, that way if you have to use dino-diesel you have some in the truck. From B-5 to B-100 DK is just a waste of $$$$$$$$$$$. Let us know how you like it, and how your truck likes it.

So far so good.
I started at B-50 or so and have edged up to around B-85 by adding 5 gals of b-99 at a time. It seems to be getting quieter as the % increases. at 50 the noise reduction was significant. I probably need to get off my **** and changer that filter now.
Sometime in the next week I have a tutorial meeting with a guy doing his own fryer fuel, I cant wait.

IS there a mixture of fryer oil and bio or dino that can be run without having to do those expensive mods?

In a word NO
VO will not stay mixed with Bio or Dino, they will seperate into layers in your tank and you will be burning what ever is in the layer that surrounds the fuel pickup.

I mix Diesel and SVO for my Trucks. 80% diesel and 20% SVO. I normally burn a tank ever 3 days, I do have one truck that sits sometimes for more than a week. I did a little test to see if they would stay mixed. 50/50 in a jar on a shelf for 2 weeks and there was NO Seperation layers!!
