2005 Mercedes 320 CDI compatibility w/ Biodiesel

Hi Anyone
I'm trying to get solid data from people (preferably several) that have first hand info with running B100 (100% Biodiesel) in the in-line 6 cyl, 2004 - 2006 era Mercedes 320 CDI engines. Many conflicting reports on the www, but I suspect these common rail engines are ok with it. Please anyone care to throw in their 2 cents or know someone that has experience?
Thanks. OB

When the older 300DT engines work on 100% Bio very well, MB is allowing only minimal % of Bio for cdi engines. Per my memory it is 3%.
Have not hear about anybody taking his chances with 100% bio.
The engine is technical marvel the way it is, why risk wasting it?
