New b20 stop down the road

So one the mobil stations changed to roadrunners and put in a B20 pump it's 20 cents cheaper than diesel and is straw color really foamy. The 617 engine seems quiet compared to reg. diesel no problems yet.. and bio fuels at 5% suppose be the most slick of any fuel additive u can buy. Any others seeing e85 B20 pumps newly added? comments from newbies

"RoadRunners" ?

Mobil I know
(Haven't seen the Blue Prancing Pegasus around here in living memory ,Though)

As of May 15,2009 ALL our Diesel is a 5% Bio(Palm Oil) /95% #2 Diesel Mix.
(Shell,BP,Exxon,Etc.,Etc. No Matter...Same Same)

I have been running it for years in other vehicles. There are a lot of threads on this here. It used to be a sticky at the top of the Diesel Discussion page.

My current MB runs on only B20. I rarely put regular diesel in it. I have run up to B99 a few times. The last few times I ran B99 I could really hear a difference in the amount of noise coming from the engine and it shakes less. It had a little bit of a shake with the A/C on and if it was idling for long periods. After my last tank of B99 it runs much better (about 1 month ago). Now I just run B20 all the time. It is 40 to 50 cents cheaper per gallon if you pump it in the tank (down here). 80 cents to 1 dollar cheaper if you buy the off road stuff.

Around knoxville they're suppose have alot of bio fuels shortly i live about 60 miles north east of knox. co-ops use to have a b5 and b20 but this is the first B20 and E85 pump in eastern tn on the interstate i'm 3 miles from it. I been trying find some for about 2 yrs and they just changed the sign from mobil to roadrunner and we get bio fuels kinda ironic so if u go thru eastern tn u will see some b20 and e85 outside knoxville now. It's rare here i guess other parts of the country not so odd here it's tabooo i guess they've sold 2200 gallons in 3 months not sure that's alot or not for a mostly auto gas station.. but i'm happy
