hard start 6.0

I have a 2004 F-250 6.0, stock except exhaust. I live in So. Cal, run B100, truck runs quieter and smoother, however in the morning upon first start it acts like there is no fuel just for a second or two. It is about 40 degrees in the morning. Once it starts, I can shut it off and it restarts right away and no problems starting the rest of the day. I have run about 450 miles so far on bio and checked the fuel filters and they look clean. I don't want to take it to the dealer, any ideas what to look for. Could a glow plug be going out and will a code reader pick that up.

At work we had two of 'em that had bad injectors and they did that, new injectors fixed it but it was kinda pricey.

You might want to try posting in the correct forum... This is not a troubleshooting section.

As I have just increased my percentage of bio in my tank, I wasn't sure which forum to post in as it could be a bio fuel problem or a mechanical problem. I saw a similar article posted in the 6.0 forum and they told him to post it in the bio forum. Darned if you do, darned if you don't. LOL
