    Any one here running Bio Diesel in there trucks. I'm thinking of buying a machine. I was wondering which one was the best?

    I'd love to in the Airstream, but I've heard so many horror stories about filters plugging
    up; one of my filters is a real bearcat to change, so I'm holding back.

    I run into a guy last week that told me that you must change the filters 2-3 times because the crude that comes out is like black corn flakes from running reg. Diesel. Then everything is smooth running. I would just like to visit someone that is making it and see their operation before I spend money on a machine that I might not have to buy. I have to burn the Bio to stay in bussiness. We are losing customers left and right due to gas prices so high we are the first ones to get cut when the budget gets tight. So with bio being $1.00 per gallon I could save $300 per week.

    The guy that bought my business, Hank Reardon, makes his bio, he's a
    forum member..PM him...I believe the best anyone can do is 20 % bio.
