Hi, I am looking into buying a diesel truck soon and have a few questions. My fiancy's father has a bio- diesel plant in his garage and that is most of the reason I want a diesel. How ever; I've heard some of the new ford trucks don't do so good with used veggie oil even cleaned and filtered. Why? They didn't say; my guess is design from the 7.3L to what ever they have between then and now. I think I'm going to be buying a 1999-2007 Superduty when I sell my 1998 F150. So that is the truck I would like to know a little bit about. (Idk what engine I will end up getting) So any help would be great. Thanks
The DPF appears on '08 and up model year Fords. The DPF were/are required after 1/01/07. Are you going to burn some blend of Biodiesel or SVO/WVO? Your orginal post talked about both forms of biomass based fuel. I will say I have run my '04 on B20 allot and it doesn't have any issues.
