When will the "experiment" END. There is no need for any of this nonsense. We are now the worlds largest oil producer, and as such, there is no need to make it difficult during travel to find acceptable fuel, that doesn't cause possible warranty issues in case of engine damage.

The Government mandates the use of Bio-Fuel and does not consider the manufactures issue with the use. Look at the state of MN and there mandate on diesel fuel; just to name one state. See attached article.
About the Minnesota Biodiesel Program

It's not an experiment. It was a decision. It looks good on the drawing board. It may have come off of Wiley E. Coyote's drawing board. The refineries are not happy. it is expensive and a pain in the rear. Fed likes it. it makes sense on the drawing board and stimulates soy production. I spoke with the Engineer from Mercedes North America. There is not a whole lot you can do about it, except be careful where you buy fuel. If you're traveling cross country there is not much that you can do about it.

I came upon my one year anniversary at 8500 miles. I had my one year service done. The engineer said that if I changed my oil and filter at that 8500 mi. interval that I should be safe. Well, there goes cost effect down the drain, unless I keep her around 8500 mi. per year.

SIDE NOTE:
i spoke with Pilot/Flying-J. They are using a 10% blend. (technically a warranty violation.

ALERT!

I noticed that SuperAmerica (a prominent brand in these parts) does not carry a Biodiesel label on their pumps. I did speak with a station manager who checked her delivery records and said they show as B4. (</= B5 does not require a label.) she also said all SuperAmerica stations carry the same fuel, which I believe is accurate since they supply their own stations using their own branded trucks.) this is great news for this area.

All commercially sold fossil Diesal is blended with a minimum of 5%. Bio
Over 5% must be labeled at the pump. Pilot flying a has 15%

Hey Phinias, can you give us your reference to proof your statement, that sure would inform us forum members where you found that information. Thanks

Looks like your reference deals with over all requirements to blend biodiesel with the good stuff in total gallon quantity in the US.

Just wondering if any MBS owners around the country have had any difficulty finding 5% or less bio diesel.
Springboard Diesel based out of Chico, CA (where else?) sells biodiesel processing equipment so they definitely have a dog in this fight with the aim of promoting biofuel as much as possible.
