Default biodiesel or WVO? what are you running?

i have done a lot of research on running both and here is what i have come to find.

biodiesel is a lot of work with chemicals but you can run it straight in your tank and you can run any range from b100 to b20.

WVO you can buy the kit from a company and run it in a seperate tank but it has to heat up first. and you have to spend a lot of time cleaning it, from contaminates and water.

im just wondering which one i should use, and i want to get your opinion on what you would do. i know they have their up's and downs but which one would take up less time and be easier to run in your truck without damaging your motor.

thank you in advance!

Neither one if you like your truck and want to keep it for a long time.

Buy good clean diesel, run additives, add extra filtration and enjoy. Anything else will just give you major headaches and ruin your ownership enjoyment.

if that is the case why are there so many owners using it and having great results? i find it hard to believe because in 1901 Rudolf Diesel invented the diesel engine and it first ran on peanut oil, it was later on they discovered that the by-product of gas was "usable" in a diesel engine and thats where they coined "diesel fuel".

I have run my 06 5.9 on a used motor oil and diesel mix. I filter it down to 5 microns and mix it about 50/50 in the summer and about 60/40 in the winter and have run it this way for the last 2 years about 20 thousand miles and have no problems.
