Yes. Another study here backs it up, although it's a bit tougher to wade through:

A local company here buys veggie oil and supplies it cleaned and processed, and converted to synthetic diesel, to outside buyers. I met one of the original partners in the company and he told me almost all of the oil and fuel they produce is sold to major oil companies, by the railcar, as an additive for ULSD. After seeing multiple documents showing 2% BD restores fuel lubricity, I've got a better understanding of why the fuel's being cut with BD.
