Biodiesel and my 300D
i think we need some clarification regarding bio-diesel and bio-dieselABLE.
i have a 1985 300SD Turbo (5 cylinder) and i've been using B20 biodiesel (20% veggie, 80% regular dino-diesel) for the past 2 years without problems. i DID NOT require any retrofitting, etc.
from what i've read, alot of the Q's you may be asking is dependent on the concentration of bio-diesel (20% - 100% full bio-diesel). i've heard if you use B20 you will not need to retro-fit, however, if you use higher concentrations (upto 100B) you will need to change hoses, etc.
hope that helps some. do a search on "biodiesel" in the forums and you'll find more information.
