Interesting tidbit :

"U.S. biodiesel production hit an all-time high in 2015, its second record-breaking year in a row. EPA statistics show production of 1.813 billion gallons in 2015, up from the previous record of 1.74 billion gallons in 2014"

I put bio in my 24v and soon after it started leaking diesel at the injection pump like crazy. Can't say %100 it was the biodiesel, but that has always been the primary suspect.

I don't know.

I have run many hundreds of gallons of biodiesel in my 5.9 Cummings trucks.

I did also run B20 in my 8v71 with no issues. I was reluctant to run anything above B20 out of concerns about fuel lines and seals. It was a 1980 and as I understand it, older vehicles are more likely to have fuel system components that are affected by biodiesel.

Funny, on my 2004 Cummings I had to replace the injection pump about two weeks after I bought the truck. I had not had a chance to run biodiesel yet.
