At least that is what my buddy was told when shopping for a replacement for his 2005 6.0L powerstroke the other day. He had asked- what about this biodiesel that I have heard about?
Can you believe what dealers will do to try and sell cars nowadays? They showed him some paper with some really small print that he didn't examine closely....
Here's my personal opinion on why B20: because that is what is typically available in retail markets that have quality control in place. There are many homebrewers who don't even wash their fuel and I think the manufacturers realize if they open their models up to B100 then there are potentially a lot of problems arising from poorly made biodiesel.
That makes some sense...
But there is always the chicken and the egg argument.
Which should come first, the manufactures that make a product capable of running B100, or the retailers that sell B100, or the consumers that purchase it?
If all businesses were run the same way, we would still be watching Black and White TV as nobody would be making color TV shows. Nobody would be buying Color TV sets, and nobody would be manufacturing color TV sets.
This, of course, ignores the extraordinary boost in sales that can occur by convincing everyone with a perfectly good BW TV set that they must go out and buy a new Color TV set. And, then changing the rules again and convincing the new owners of color CRT sets to go out and buy a new color HDTV set.
Shouldn't be too hard though for a manufacturer to make an engine B100 "SAVE". Think about the publicity: "Flexdiesel" Model up to 100% bio approved. There is your first step.
I think the bigger reason against bio endorsment would be the enormous subsidies loss from the oil companies.
BTW, the subject line is nothing more than wishful thinking from someone who believes in fairy tales.
You can read it here: http://www.dmaxcentral.com/for...howthread.php?t=4005 but only B20 has been approved.
