  3. Lb7 B100

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    I was thinking about switching to B100 in my lb7. I was wondering if anyone that runs b100 in an lb7 has had any problems after switching to B100. I know i will plug up my fuel filter on the first few tanks but was wondering if anyone had other problems with B100. The truck has 219,000 miles...
  4. 2% B100 and filters?

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    I was gonna start running one gallon of B100 in my tank to get a 2% fuel to solve the lubriocity problems, and then run a good cetane booster. Now will the Bio act as a cleaner too or should I run a cetane booster with detergents too? And will the 2% make my fuel filter clog up like some guys...
  5. LBZ & bio??

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    If I can find some biod in San Antonio, what % can I run in my LBZ? Will the 5% be ok? Can I go higher or lower? If I can find it and if I can run it in my LBZ, will it be ok to stop running my RBP additive?:help

  7. messed up on second biodiesel batch

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    So I made my first batch of biodiesel and that turned out good, but my second and larger batch I can't say the same for. Im having trouble getting the pic on here but it looks like it has fatty substances in the bio that won't settle out, yet I'm sure I did my titration right. The only thing I...
  8. Final test before using biodiesel in duramax.

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    Im kinda nervous about putting my first batch of biodiesel in my truck. Ive done a 3/27 test and that turned out ok. I've also filled a test tube with half water and half biodiesel, shaking it to see if my water was cloudy from any leftover Lye, and the water was clear. Does anyone know any...
  9. water for cleaning biodiesel

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
    What water do you guys use when you wash your biodiesel? I have been using reverse osmosis water but I've considered using tapwater (city water not well water). Is that a bad idea or does it not matter what kind of water I use as long as I check the ph level? Any input would be helpful.

    Alternative Fuels Diesel Additives Lubricants
