I run B100 about every other tank. No problems and it's about .20 cents cheaper than #2 here in Hawaii.

i run biodiesel when ever i can. not very much lately because i lost my source and the nearest station isn't that near. i think my truck runs great on bio, super smooth and can't feel any loss in power. i did loose my injectors after the 2 or 3 tank of b100 i ran though. my fuel filters got plugged which caused the injectors to starve for fuel. it all happend so quick to be honest i didn't even have any warning. i still run bio and got a FASS Fuel System for extra protection now.

My engine runs quieter. I do have to drain the water separator more often. I try to do it every month. I change my fuel filters every 10,000 miles.

I run B100 in a 2004 F250 if the low temp is going to be above 30 degrees and B50 if below 30 degrees. Bought truck with 106K on it and was running B20 in it thirty minutes after I signed the papers. Went to B100 at 130K and have 154K on it now. No water separator problems, no filter problems. Gelled up one time with B100 at 28 degrees. Had truck refired three hours later at 34 degrees with two electric heaters aimed at center of fuel tank. Never even changed the filters that day (didn't have any with me).

On B100 it runs better. I do live in Hawaii, so I don't have to worry about low temps.

Thanks

About 1/3 of my 17,500 miles are on B100, but always a mix, 1 tank of #2 then 1 or 2 tanks of B100 or maybe the other way around. There is only 1 gas station on Oahu that sells B100, that I know of. So I fill up where ever I need to.

The question was B100. I was running b5 in little rock, AR but haven't found any biodiesel in Abilene, TX yet. Personally I've never seen B100 for sale and don't have a big enough place to make enough to run it straight.

tazo is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
Filled up with B100 on Monday. I have been running B50 to B80 for the last few months. The reason I have not been running B100 is the temps get down low 30s to upper 20s. I didnt want to worry about gelling. I do notice a different tone in the motor. It runs really quiet and smooth. It's my view that most do not know about biodiesel and are afraid to use it. There was talk at my daughters school that bio fuels are bad because of what it is. And it's taking away food from us and destroying our land.. I quickly set them straight and gave the short version lecture.

I have been running b-5( mixing in b100 when I get fuel) since december, but I think im gonna start to run b-20 since its getting warmer here in mass.- I would love to run b-50 or so but I pay 4.99 a gal for the b-100 so its a bit too steep to run stronger?

A significant percentage is availability, with the rest going to warranty.

Retailers with QUALITY biofuel are pretty few and far between. In the Dallas/Fort Worth area, the biofuel retailers are in either downtown Dallas, or downtown Fort Worth; it's a 60-mile round trip to get biofuel for me (of ANY kind, much less quality) when non-biofuel is 4 blocks away -- and one of the cheaper stations in the area, to boot. (As a matter of record, if I were in Austin, I'd buy it a lot more; there, you're never more than 5 miles from a bio-retailer, usually B20.)

Running anything but QUALITY fuel in a 6.0 hits a little too close to home on an already skittish warranty policy from Ford. Ford endorses no more than B5, and that concentration is too low for it to be worth the effort for most retailers.

As the 6.0 platform ages a little more (i.e. running out of warranty), you'll see more people using it.

Part of the problem, too, is that there are still too many people who equate "biodiesel" to running old french-fry oil. This is what kills it for a lot of folks, Ford Corporate included. There *IS* a difference between WVO and commercially-prepared, properly blended, and taxed, biodiesel, and THAT's a perception problem that'll take a LONG time to fix.
