Bio-Diesel 2 years

I have been using Bio for 2 years with not a single problem. As most can see in my signature, I am using it in a truck that some say it should not be used in. Thus far the truck runs like a champ, and I can stand to have the truck running in the garage without tearing up. That is a bonus when adjusting the IP.

Just thought I would report my success. Also, no leaks in hoses.

Is he running WVO, SVO, or true processed Bio? I have been running retailer bought B20 for 2 years in my personal truck and for more than three years in all my tow trucks (8 in fleet) with only two failed fuel pumps. About those pumps, both trucks had over 400K on the ticker, and they were the original pumps from the factory. Still painted to the engine block! Talk about a pain, 7.3 PS fuel pumps are really in there. Anyways, I cant see Bio, true Bio, being the cause of his pump failure. Unless, he is using WVO or SVO without a heater and seprate tank.
