Trying Biodiesel...

Hey folks, I am new at the diesel thing and wanted some advice before I try this. There are a couple of stations here in Santa Fe that offer the B20 bio diesel, and I was thinking about trying it.
Do I need to do anything special before hand? What do you think about the product, is it safe to run?
Thanks in advance.

Try it you'll like it! Your truck is ready for bio, no mods are necessary. Bio in levels greater than B-20 MAY require you to replace your fuel filter because it is a great solvent, and will remove all the Dino-Diesel crud from the fuel system. I would invite you to join us in the biodiesel forum if you need more info. There are a couple of dozen of us there that make our own bio.

Thanks for the info Don. I'll let you know how it went. BTW They are really proud of this B20 stuff. It's expensive...
