My 6.0 PSD ran really well on B10 and B15 due to the extra lubricity. My 6.7 CTD can run B20 but I don't feel or hear a difference like in my Ford. I think any engine that was designed for higher sulfur fuel will thank you for running bio-diesel.

Its been hard to find.  I've only used one tank of it in my PSD 6.0 and got the best mileage ever: 19 mpg with the camper on.

Visit MN.  Soybeans are grown here and biodiesel may be mandatory. Anyway it's common.  Commercial semi owner/drivers like it in warm weather but it jells quickly in winter.

Just be careful, if you've never run it before, and you fill up with it, it will clean out your fuel system in a hurry, have a couple of extra fuel filters on hand, just in case.
