B100 & additives??

Quick question- if I'm running B100, is there any benefit to adding my customary DK grey every fill up? Or maybe a can of SeaFoam every oil change?

Quick Answer Nothing is needed if you run anything over B-2!Just a 2% addition of biodiesel will INCREASE the lubricity of ULSD by 67%. If your using bio you don't need anything else

Damn....What happened to the "s" that I typed?......Don't know how that "he" got up there!!!......(haha)

Sorry, Wheat.....Still.....Cool pics.......

Wanna do the "kit" thing, eventually, fabman......I read up on it a little.....But I can probably get 10 times more waste oil from various sources than I could possibly use......Don't want to dump waste oil right into the tank.....Want to "refine" the stuff and dump right into the tank without changing the truck itself any........It makes a glycerine byproduct that you could actually sell too, don't it?.....

I'm just not set up for it now........

Wheatina is starting off with a positive reputation.
Damn Don...you blew my cover!! I sort of liked being thought of a just one of the guys.

You must be in the middle of, or just about to start, your canola harvest...right Don?? I went down and "pushed" our canola over the weekend. We should have been in there a week earlier, but were stuck waiting for the rental to arrive. I hate when that happens. Anyway, I got some digital videos of the "pushing" process that I'll post when I get my DV cables back from down south. Really an interesting option over swathing. Do you swath, or direct cut??

HAVE A GREAT HARVEST!!! We should be combining the canola in about a week or so.

Steve all I can say is get yourself setup to make some, if you really want a little push to get yourself started go buy some B20 and run it you will be suprised how much quieter and better the engine runs and I actually get an increase in mileage when I switch to bio (can't even buy it locally in the winter around here for some reason and I am not setup with a heated shop to make it in so have to just store the oil until spring and then start up hard and heavy through the summer)
As to being setup well I built my entire setup in a 8x8 shed in my back yard

You're right, MB......Just a matter of doing it......Regarding running B20.....I think they have exactly 1 biodiesel site in the city......at one of our BP stations....I'll have to double-check on that.....

Hey....Wheatina!....Welcome to the thread!.....Everyone says you're a real cool dude!......(haha)
