I wouldn't think about it, unless if u don't care ...Anyone running Biodiesel? What are you finding to be the pros & cons. currently getting 41.8 MPG with regular diesel. Car has 6,000 mile. would switching now give me clogged fuel filter issues? Is B20 the best blend? Thanks
I've run several tanks of b20 with no issues out of it ran a little quieter and lost like a mile or 2 but after I just cut b20 with regular diesel and best I've pulled out was like 58 on a trip
I live in northern IL and all the pumps I've seem are labeled B12- B20. Pot luck what you get, however more then likely it's closer to B20. Where do you find < B5 diesel??I do not recall anybody on the forum ever regularly running B20. For mine, I always keep it under B5. I may have once or twice inadvertently filled up with something like B11, but that was like one or two tanks out of 147K miles.
OH, PA, WV mainly. My understanding is that if the pump isn't labeled with anything other than "ULSD 15 PPM Sulfur" then it's B5 or less.I live in northern IL and all the pumps I've seem are labeled B12- B20. Pot luck what you get, however more then likely it's closer to B20. Where do you find < B5 diesel??
That is incorrect. PA is mandated to be 2% biodiesel currently. Biodiesel content has to be labeled on the pump if it's 5% or higher. I like it because 2% gives you the optimal benefits of lubricity that biodiesel adds to the fuel without the drawbacks higher levels can bring to other engine components.Biodiesel all depends on the state. Some states force it's use. In PA it's required to be at least 5%. Here in NJ biodiesel is nowhere to be found.
There is a lot of ways to do it....but they all take a degree of skill.There was a member on the board who used to talk about making his own biodiesel but he never discussed his method or quantities produced.
