Bio-Diesel and a 1985 F250 Diesel

Hi Everyone,

I just purchased a 1985 F250 Diesel yesterday, and am wondering if there is anything I special I need to do before I run Bio.

Thanks

It most likely has rubber fuel lines and they should be changed.
Also change any other rubber components in the fuel system O-rings seals etc.

I personally wouldn't worry about that unless you start to have problems, I've been running it in my 84 for over a year no probs

I thought you were talking about homemade, if you are buying it from the store you definetely have no worries.
