OK so I was doing a little research on current manufacturer "opinions" on using biodiesel in preparation for working with a new local farm that wants to use biodiesel. New Holland is the most welcoming and state B100 use. Case IH says on their website that there is some sort of "update kit" that must be used for > B20. Any ideas on what this is? (like undercoating add-on that dealers try to sell?)
I know all about the Magnuson-Moss Act that states that manufacturers cannot deny a warranty claim because of fuel.
Here's another thing that they state on their website, any truth to this?
"Because on-farm fuel supplies are used fairly quickly (rather than stored unused for months), algae and other types of organic growth haven’t been much of an issue with pure diesel fuel.
However, biodiesel is a richer food source:
More highly oxygenated
Presents more interfaces with water
This microbial activity creates sludge that can plug filters"
