B2 is 2% biodiesel and 98% ULSD (ultra low sulphur diesel)
B20 is 20% bio and 80% ULSD.

There are all kinds of blends.
B2,B11,B20and B99 are the most common.

I run B20 all spring, summer and fall until it drops to 10, then I drop to B2 just to be sure I dont have any gelling issues. Lastyear I ran B20 in -25 and had no issues, but I still run B2 to be sure.

Run it, you wont regret it.
