Does an IDI work better than DI for Bio???

I did a search and found a topic under a mercedes forum for the old wagons. They were talking about indirect ignition working better for Bio than direct. Any truth to this???

Thanks, Todd

pro- the motors probably run easier because the bio gets a little more heated before it goes into the combustion chamber
con- the oil has more time to oxidate inside your heads, this can create a harmful coating to vital internal engine components
