ANSWER #1 of 2

Biodiesel is usually sold blended with petrodiesel and is designated B?? where ?? is the percentage of biodiesel. B5 would be 5% biodiesel and 95% petrodiesel. B20 would be 20/80% and of course B100 would be pure biodiesel. Most manufacturers do not recommend above B5 and threaten to void the warranty if higher percentage are used. Truck fleet owners have had success with B20 and some even report lower maintenance costs with B20 than pure petrodiesel. If you want to play it safe than you should stick with whatever manufacturer recommendations (usually B5).
