Do You Use Bio-Diesel

Unread postby Trawler on Thu Apr 24, 2008 1:35 pm

How do you feel about Bio-Diesel?
It does seem to be cheaper, but what about mileage and power?

Cheaper than #2 or #4 Diesel? I think not! Unless you make it yourself, bio costs more at the pump. Cenex is our local supplier and I'd pay an extra 20 cents/gal for the priviledge.

Haven't found anywhere in Ottawa that sells bio-diesel.
To be honest, not sure if my truck can use it with all the PDF stuff.....

Most modern (2007+) can handle B5-10, not much more than that. Older diesels, like the old 12V Cummins can handle just about anything.
