6.7 biodiesel compatible?

I have been hearing that maybe the Ford's 6.4L is not biodiesel compatible because of the particle trap so I asked this question in the Ford section.
I was thinking that since all of the new diesels have a particle trap I wonder what the other guys are saying about biodiesel.

Any word from the Dodge house?

B5 Is still warrentied by Cummins's........
I don't know about anything beyond that.
Cummins said that only B15 was recommend in my Cummins's and I ran pure Biodiesel, so I guess were waiting for a gueny pig.

My new 6.7 book says on page 412 "a maximum blend of 5% biodiesel, meeting ASTM spec. D6751 may be used with your Cummins equipped vehicle, anything over 5% can negatively impact the fuel filters ability to separate water from the fuel resulting in high pressure fuel system corrosion or damage"
I don't know much about biodiesel but that's what it says, seems like a small percentage.

Government trucks can run on up to B20, only because it's mil-spec biodiesel. There isn't an appropriate national standard for biodiesel yet so they won't certify civilian rigs to more than B5.

Thats not a bad thing, considering what could happen if they use more than that percentage of bio diesel.

Go Greyhound, and leave your luggage with us. *maybe not intentionally*
