You don't want to burn anything that will produce ash as that will plug up the DPF.

Small %'s of biodiesel (like 3-5%) are one of the best things you can do for your HPFP. That and be absolutely sure there is no gasoline and no water in the fuel. Having even one tank with either of those not-diesel liquids will kill the pump!
