Biodiesel Question (smoke)

This may be a stupid question but the only place to get biodiesel is 30-40 miles away so none of my diesel owning friends run it.

Will biodiesel (B100) produce black smoke like regular #2 diesel?

I believe it's because biodiesel is an oxyginated fuel [10-12% oxygen] so it burns cleaner.
