B100 safe in new trucks?

looking into mass producing b100 for a fleet of 03-07 6.0 pickups and two 99 7.3s will the stock fuel system be ok running 100%?

I don't see why not, there's a lot of guys running straight WVO with little trouble.
Making it bio-diesel removes the acid which would be better for the system.

If diesel gets much higher I'm going to start buying VVO in 55gal drums. :

It will be safe for the summer months, but you will want to blend it down to a B20 mixture in the winter because of gelling issues. If you have more than 100K on the trucks, there is a possibility of plugging filters for the first 3K or so, but after the initial cleaning of the system, you should be fine with normal changing intervals of the fuel filter.

B100 will clean the system rather quickly, and the engines should quiet down considerably, because of the solvent/lubricating attributes of Bio-D. Good luck with the processing.
