Are there any new reports on the 06 5.9L running bio diesel 20-100%? I am washing mine very good and drying it until I can add the fuel to a shot glass and read through the bottom up to an inch away and I pass the 3/27 test each time. Still nervous. The only thing I am knowing not doing is filtering to 2 microns or lower before filling. I have ran about 1000 miles with 20% and I have about 40-50% in the tank now. I am filtering the fuel to 30, 20, and 10 but nothing lower yet. My plan is to making a quick filter to stick in my tank while filling to filter to 5 to 1, but I have not got that far. I have filters if anything plugs.
Any other problems with the common rail or 06 parts I should be doing or testing for?

Thanks guys.

I use one of these mounted on the outlet of my processor.

It filters to 10 microns. From there it goes into my tank. I am running B100 in my 2006 Cummins 5.9. The engine light stays off in warm weather - I am using fastfood grease for feedstock. I am changing my Dodge fuel filter in the truck at every oil change ~6000 miles.

I recommend you put some BD in your tank and then add some more every day to work up your %. If your fuel is as good as you think then you will work right up to B100. It really is not a big deal after the first time. I emptied my processor this morning refueling. My only thought was: I need to make more.

What do you mean by your engine light stays off with warmer weather? I have never seen mine come on yet with running my mixtures

I am using fast food solid WVO as my feedstock and it has a higher cloud and gel temp than most biodiesel. One cold day I had a fuel starvation issue when the filter clogged with biodiesel solidifying into tiny crystals = cloud point. I had to add 50% regular diesel, and the engine light stayed on. With the next batch and wormer weather, this has not reoccurred. I fact I ran a full tank at B100 and the engine lght never came on.

I ALSO HAD A FUEL STARVE PROBLEM ON MY 06 5.9L AT TEMPS BELOW 15 DEGREES. I CHANGED THE FUEL FILTER ADDED MORE DINO DIESEL AND THE LIGHT WENT OUT.

I have never seen a light yet but I only started running any % when it was only getting down to 25 degrees at night so that is why I missed that. When you guys are having this problem are you running 100%?

I am also running b50 and the temps are getting down to 30 now. I just read in the manual our fuel filter housings have a 12v heater in them, so I'm going to try and run b50 down to 20 deg F. I notice a substantial difference in engine noise/smoothness between having bio in vs. no bio. So far, so good with the temps, though.

I have been leaving my garage heat turned off to find out what temp my bio will hold. I have clear filters and hoses on my system and I can report three different batches now have been good down to 15 degrees F. Twice it got to 8-11degrees and they were gelled.

hiper - Your b100 was good down to 15 deg? The current tank I'm running is at about b80 and haven't had any problems.

I was running my b100 down to around 10 degrees, but I forgot to add something to it and it got down to about -15degress. Couldn't go over 30 mph, but made it to work and I just let it run for 6 hours. It warmed the fuel up and it was ok.
I have heard that most bio gells at 15-20 degress. I have had really good luck with my process.

Just noticed this old post where I made comments on running bio blends 50/50 down to 30 degrees.
I have not been on here much at all but I have now started running 100% at 20 degrees.
Never had a problem with fuel.

The only time I ever had a problem was when it was said to get down to 15 degrees and I trusted a full tank of bio to minnesota's changing weather. The weather got down to 7 degrees that morning and the fuel was pretty much solid in the tank. You could hear the fuel pump spinnning fast enough because it would not move fuel.......big oops there.
I went down and got 2 80oz jugs of power service 911 and dumped 1 full jug in the tank along with 100% in the filter and the rest in the tank. I let it sit for about 2? hours and she fired right up.
People talk crap about power service....least now I can say it works just fine with BIO.
Never had a problem since.
You live you learn. Now more 100% bio with temps below 15 degrees......

buy it and run it - only worry with the 6.7L and up with the installed programming? to give the cylinder a shot to burn out the carbon. Bio tends to get pulled back down into the oil from the rings because this shot does not burn as much to heating up the cylinder to pop off the carbon build up.
I did hear at one point the dealers could turn that off - then you could run bio with a 6.7L+
I first heard this with a guy owning a GM product and his oil would gain a gallon in an hour. (so he claimed). He had his injector shot program turned off and go rid of the non combustion injector spray.
