Again VW TDI had to use B5 in NJ. Fuel mileage was about the same. However the engine was quieter at idle. Just some info for the digester.

Clifford, I agree, I would not want the bio-diesel in CO in the winter.  My hope is to one more fill with the 5-20% stuff to play with and then get the bus loaded up with pure diesel for last leg of the trip - for winter.  Even that is not all that good, since our diesel in CO in the winter is blended #1 and #2. 

We would probably not be in too bad of shape, as the tank in the Eagle has a lot of exposure to the last bay and our bays are kept above 40* in the winter for water system protection.
