For your Benz what blends of biodiesel and what time of year?

Just wondering what blends of biodiesel y'all are running in your MB, and at what temperatures you switch to different blends.

From March 2004 to Thanksgiving 2005 I was running B100. On Thanksgiving this year I switched to B75. Thanksgiving is when the temps finally didn't really make it above freezing during the day. So I think my plan is when temperature stay below freezing during the day I will stick with B75, and B100 when temps stay above 40F and higher.

About the same times for me on B100. Around October I switched to B50ish as a precaution and now that winter's really here probably about B30. I don't really use that precise of a ratio. I've never had any trouble with crystalizing or wax clogging filters or strainers. Its practical for me to cut back on my bio percentage because I just run it long enough to warm up the car.
