A diesel wont have much build up on the fuel system until it reaches 100K. So a newer truck under that should have zero to very little problems with filters.
Straight from the National Biodiesel Board wesite.
"Ensuring consumers have a high level of confidence in the biodiesel they purchase is a top priority for the NBB and key element in the industry's continued growth.
Regulation of fuel standards is a function primarily left to the states. However, regulation of biodiesel and blends is not uniform across all states.
The NBB is undertaking a project to work with states to catalog information regarding their authority to regulate fuels; their status in adopting ASTM D6751 as the fuel specification for biodiesel; enforcement procedures; and to assess their capacity to analyze samples."
This will hopefully ensure by the end of this year that when you go to the pump to pump B20, it is surely 20% bio, and when you get B50 you just put 50% of a farmers crop in your truck or car.
Hope this helps,
