I'm not for sure, I know you can't use the regular Low Sulfur Diesel. I think I read somewhere, (maybe diesel power) that you could run B20 Biodiesel.

No, you will WRECK the DPF and you will then get a CEL and the engine will eventually derate to about 15% of rated power.

We had to put two New storage tanks at my trucking company.
One for the new fuel so I would not get fined by the Illinois and Federal epa.
and a second tank for Bio diesel ( I get a tax credit for doing this) shortly I will remove the old tanks and completly switch the fleet over to the new fuel.
I was told that the farmers in my area could run eather fuel in what ever engine they wanted as long as it stayed on the farm. If it was Mfg on or after 1-1 2007 the new fuel is a requirement no exceptions.. Most of the farmers are draining the tanks and buying the new fuel or installing a new smaller tank for the pickups and new semi's. Every one makes money except us the end user. oh well.it's only money.:shrug: the little guy never wins anymore.:squish

The 5.9 can run on the new ULSD, but the 6.7 can not run on the LSD. 2010 the ULSD is all you will be able to drive. If you have a 5.9 add additive with the new fuel. old fuel LSD= low sulfur diesel= 500ppm sulfur, new fuel ULSD ultra low sulfur diesel= 15 ppm sulfur.

JOhn G and haz mat 19 are correct. 6.7 L trucks have a dpf (diesel particulate filter) that traps carbon etc and burns it off at a later date and time. Higher sulfer diesel (anything over 15parts per million) will clog the filter. Off road diesel will remain 500 ppm until 2010 as it is my understanding. If you clog the dpf the stealer will have to take it off and manually put it on a machine and clean it. I dont know (and would like to ) how stealers (esp dodge in this case) are gonna do dpf cleanings. Cat said until machines are in many stealers, they were going to do an exchange program. (you take a clogged one in htey put one on and send yours off to get cleaned. I would imagine since not many diesels are sold at some dealerships dodge will offer the same (not ever stealer will have a 10,000 dollar machine,) but dont know and would ask. If you dont clog your dpf(ie put wrong fuel in) it should be self sufficient (ie not need any outside maintenance) until 100000 miles.
