I'm thinking of adding another Excursion to my stable, specifically a PSD but want to run bio-diesel (of which variety I'm still unsure). Diesel is still .50 more than gas here so the numbers really have to work out.
"Socialism, like the ancient ideas from which it springs, confuses the distinction between government and society. As a result of this, every time we object to a thing being done by government, the socialist concludes that we object to its being done at all. " -The Law, Frédéric Bastiat, 1850
I have run many combinations of bio and dino. Stated mixing myself at the pump with B100 and dino. B20 was my first mix and now I am up to approximately a mix giving me B75 and up B90 bepending on what my current tank level is and what prices are at the time. I use it in both the 6.0 and 7.3 and it runs great. Mileage about the same. Power may be just a little less. Amerigreen (Soybean) Biodiesel has been great so far. Been using it for about 6 months, only in the summer months with the higher concentrations. When winter hits PA I only run a B5 bio/dino blend and there are no gelling issues. Seems to run much quieter too. Hope this helps.
The manual on my 05 psd 6.0 says not to use more than 5% biodiesel, I asked the diesel tech's at the ford dealership and they said not to run bio in it. I am intersted in what you guy say about it. I origanally bought the thing to run DSE, but after reading here about it I have decided not to do it, but I'm now considering making biodiesel
