Biodiesel is fine for any diesel, especially these older ones. Are you planning on buying bio or making it yourself?

There are few to zero problems with store bought biodiesel, even in newer trucks, regardless of what the dealerships will tell you.

Making it yourself isnt that hard either. But you have to be willing to get dirty. lol
