Has anyone used B-10?

I have an 05 6.0 L. When I got my truck I found a paper where Ford Motor stated they only recommend B-5 as a useable biofuel, with the diesel for various reasons. Does anyone know if they changed their stance. I went to a Pilot station yesterday and they only had B-10. I went elsewhere. Any info would be great. Thanks

b-5 or b-10 doesnt make a difference.
It will probably run better than b-5, quieter and 1% less power.

Most of the reason why engine manufactures do not recommend higher concentrations than what they do, has nothing to do with the engine and the fuel..

it has to do with emissions out the tail pipe.

Biodiesel increases NOx emmisions just a bit over the EPA limit. The EPA holds the engine manufacturers responsible not the fuel makers.

Because of this, until they modify the engine exhaust scrubbing to meet the EPA standards, they don't recommend higher blends.

Its a bunch of horse hockey.

Your engine will run better and longer on B100 than any dino diesel.

i have the same engine/truck and have run all blends and try to run b100 as much as possible. If I had my choice i would only run b100, weather permiting, but sometimes my bio distributor isn't available or is out of fuel for a day so I have to put a couple gallons of D2 in the truck. Your truck will run perfect on biodiesel, just beaware your fuel filters my get clogged fast and if they get really clogged your injectors will starve for fuel which is very bad.

I fill up on b-99 and then fill up at a half tank with dino for b-50 to avoid going to the "hood". Then I will even fill up with dino again at quarter tank to run the bio as long as possible.

The only real possible problem you may have, is carbon deposits building up at or near the piston rings, since biodiesel has a higher ignition resistance compared to the dino variety. This is generally considered to be a problem with direct injection (as apposed to indirect) since the bio fuel is more likely to reach the piston unburned without a prechamber for premixing.

Now this is only a general rule and is based on older direct injected diesels that had lower pressure injectors that didn't atomize the fuel as well as the newer injection systems, such as the ones used in powerstrokes.

I wish they sold B100 or B-anything where I live, the older injection systems don't hold up very well on strait LSD or ULSD (I have to run additive).
