Biodiesel question

i was wondering if you use biodiesel once, to see how good it is, and would i be able to change back to reg fuel? to see if there is a difference in the two

are you talking bio or veggie? I run an 80/20 bio mix on a daily basis with good results. I never tried veggie oil as from what I read you need to do a BUNCH of stuff to keep it flowing.

You can switch back and forth between the two...as long as you are talking about soy diesel. I have run soy diesel and my truck loves the stuff. Better power, mileage and response.

yes you can go back and forth between bio diesel and #2 diesel and blend in any ratio you like up to 100%.

To run veggie oil the max ratio is about 40% veggie oil until you heat the oil then you can run it at 100% When running veggie mixed with #2 in an unheated form the ambient temperature dictates the realistic maximum you can run.
