Re: BIO DIESLE

Should be no problem, beyond slightly lower MPG. I've run B20 in my 2000 F-350.

Re: BIO DIESLE

I run it all summer in place of an additive. Do not see a difference in MPG in warm weather, but start to see a small difference when the temps start to drop.

Re: BIO DIESLE

B20 has slightly lower heating value. Heat is what turns the wheels, so a reduction in MPG should be expected.
