    The squeaky clean state of CA. Where even the cows are considered to impact our environment and their flatulence pollutes our air(just read about that today, talk about BS).

    Ok question about the bi mixes. I have been fueling at a liberty truck stop in mt jackson va and the sign at the pumps reads 2% bio blend. What dose this mean? I thought 2% bio fuel and 98% regular fuel. Am I wrong? 09 isx been changing filters every 10k with the oil change. About $.20 a gallon cheaper than the flying hook , wilco, or loves 30 miles up the road.

    Your right. It's 98% straight diesel and 2% biodiesel blend

    It's also called B-2, and where a state mandated bio before widely available, that was what you usually got.

    They used to put the percentage on fuel receipts, but that practice isn't always followed anymore.

    I had a lot of the same problems,changing filter at 6-7k,rough idle when motor was hot. I have a 2000 n14 celect + I stopped fueling at pilot,loves. My last ifta was 7.42 up from 6.2. So no question if it's worth it.
