biodiesel 80/20 use in 2004?

biodiesel 80/20 use in 2004 5.9L HO turbo, have never used it but it is all you can find in Illinois. Wisconsin still has premiere #1 diesel, but not in Illinois. Have been told not to use any biodiesel in this 2004, it's the only engine that dodge made that isn't compatible with Biodiesel. Thots? bull or bunk. Have not had any probs. with the truck, but sometimes might find my self out of gas and in Illinois.

I dont think thats all you can find in Illinois. I know you can run accross it if you're not carful, but most tractors and big trucks cant run it so it can't be a standard??

Absolutely nothing wrong with running B20 in your truck. B50 runs great too. B100 you will lose a minimum of 4mpg.

I would double check the manual, but for some reason I believe that up to 20% Bio is A-K! I run Bio whenever I come across it, but usually its a mix of Bio/normal Diesel.

Tractors can get by with off road diesel, #2, not sure about semis. Have been tempted to ask some of the semi drivers, thot they would be more knowledgable about the grade of diesel they get in the various states. Gas & diesel are not the same grade depending on where you are, varies from state to state. Nothing is standard.

Finding the B5 is the question, which stations carry which grade. You can stop at a lot and still be on empty. I guess carrying a 5 gal. can full is the only answer and hope that does it. I have this question into cummins and see what they say. Why are there so many different grades?

??????????????????????

Where in the heck are you driving in IL ?? I live near Rockford and have to go 10 miles OUT of my way to FIND a bio supplier. With the exception of that one guy, there isn't a source for bio within 25 miles of me that I could find, except the Ag dealers (and they won't sell to drive-ups).

I use B10 for the lubricity enhancement in my '06 - except for the loss of ~1.5MPG, it runs great.

I know, I only have one station in town where I can get it as well.

Do you run B-10 100% or do you mix with D2?

I'm in southern IL and practically all I can find within 25mi is up to b20. Hard to find straight #2. I guess its all the farming going on around here. Runs good but watch the fuel filter. All those soy beans retain their moisture.

When I can get to that station, I run the bio-fuel (the vendor says it's actually somewhere between B12 and B15) at 100%.

Been doing it for several years - no clogs, no water, no worries, a solid 17-18 MPG, and I'm not concerned about ULSD's low lubricity

Seriously? You lose that much in MPG? For me B20 only reduces my mileage maybe .5 mpg and that is on a bad day. It takes B50 to make me lose 2mpg. Don't get me started on B100. haha
