I run B100 in my 6.0 and have had no trouble, it's all in the quality!! your friend may be concerned about his warrenty , even then b20 is to much ford only covers up to b5. my 6.0 actualy gets better milage on b100 than on the winter blend fuel.

the best way to dry the fuel is to NOT wet it, It took me a while to change from water wash but I finally did. I use magnisol to DRY wash the fuel.

I've been makin fuel for a couple years now and have always done a wet wash with no problems. I've read about the magnesol but never did any in depth research. Whats the scoop with it? Price, how it works, benefits, downfalls, etc.

Use the search function there's tons of stuff about magnesol on here.

I've been running 100% in my 6.0 since it was two months old in '06 haven't had any problems, but I use Magnesol to dry with only.

Just running an aquarium pump through it for 24 hours is not going to dry it, I wouldn't run it like that in my 6.0.

thanks for the link Don, I had to run out for a bit. magnisol is the way to go if you're wanting truly dry fuel and being that H2O is a big no no with PSD injectors you would be doing yourself and the truck a big favor!!

I have a 05 and all last spring and summer I ran b100 with no problems. I stopped making in September when school went back. I have a few hundred gallons of oil now waiting to be made. Lost alittle power and lag time was increased with the b100 but truck was quietier and my students loved the smell.
