Where I live in Orange County, itís getting harder and harder to find diesel#2. Most stations are now switching over to B20 biodiesel. Anyone have any problems running B20? Any long term problems?? Anything I need to do to prevent problems? Iíve got a 2009 E350 with the 6.0

Costco Irvine and Torrance have diesel. I do not recall seeing anything about it being B20. They have the best prices, as well.

Our 7.3 has no issues w B20. No idea re 6.0's tolerance.

B20 is fine for the 6.0. There’s no DPF to foul. Generally B20 has a better lubricity rating than #2 so it should help keep your injectors working better longer too.
