Research online for the court case involving an 08 Superduty and running b100. I think it was on a competative diesel site. The outcome was a ruling that a third party company was not liable for a compatable and direct replacement fuel. Ford paid for the cab removal and found that the injector failure blew the engine not the fuel. I paraphrased it.
Manufacturers will look for any way possible to wiggle out of a warrenty claim.
I can't tell you how many Ford "Mechanics" have said to me that "BioDiesel doesn't have good enough lubricating properties and that will result in early engine failure".
Evidently that is the companies talking point on the subject.
They also claim that BD is corrosive so it will destroy injectors and pumps.
I really don't think they have done their home work on Biodiesel they see it as an unknown factor and just throw up scary objections
Beloit, Wisconsin, February 1, 2007 – Fairbanks Morse Engine, an EnPro Industries company,
announced today the approval to utilize up to B100 (100% bio-diesel) in its Opposed Piston
(OP) Model 3 8 1/8 diesel and dual fuel engines for continuous operations. “Our extensive
tests have demonstrated that utilizing B100 fuels that comply with the ASTM D6751 testing and
specification had little impact on fuel consumption and power ratings, and had positive impacts
on emissions by substantially lowering particulate matter (PM) and CO values”, said Joe Eves,
engineering manager – OP and FM/ALCO engines
