Can a 7.3 IDI Turbo diesel run Bio Diesel

I own a 1994 IDI turbo diesel.

What needs to be done to run bio diesel on my truck.

Just curious,
Thanks,
Chris

There is nothing you need to do to run on BioDiesel.

But to run on SVO (straight vegetable oil) & WVO (waste vegetable oil) there are some things that you should do. Although, the IDI engine is very tolerant.

Yes! You can run Biodiesel in your truck with no mods.

You don't have to do a thing. Just make sure you change your fuel filter more often at first. Biodiesel will take all the crud out of your fuel system. All hoses are compatable after 1994.
