Contemplating buying the ECODIESEL

8590 Views 11 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  meritmetal
Have been reading many of these forums in anticipation to buying. Currently am driving a '98 Ram 1500 4 X 4, 5.7 liter, 145k on the odometer. The most mpg I've gotten since new has been 13.5 mpg. Looking forward to the increased mpg with the ECODIESEL. Must sell the gas burner first. Haven't seen any info or reports of anyone burning Bio Fuel. Dodge literature says B20 is approved. Would Bio attain better mpg due to the increased lubricating ability? Any input would be appreciated!

This is from the manual.

"A maximum blend of 5% biodiesel meeting ASTM
specification D-975 may be used with your diesel
engine without any adjustments to regular service

Biodiesel, as the name implies, is made from organic oil, which can include waste French fry oil sold as salvage by McDonalds and other fast food places.
