I have recently started running Biodiesel in 2 trucks & tractor. So For the tractor I run a b20 mix but both trucks are running on pure Biodiesel. I source it from a commercial supplier. Here in New Zealand for biodiesel producers to apply for grants they need to make their product to fuel standard. The producer is visited & a sample is taken which is interdependently tested. So quality is not a major problem. All my diesels are the older style so have had no problems. The Nissan shows the biggest improvement in that the smoke is almost completely eliminated. The motor I have (TD27) is normally known as a "coal burner". I have found that due to a higher flash point that use of pre-heat is needed when starting from cold. Price wise its currently 15c/Litre cheaper than petroleum diesel.
