Never Ford diesels are certified for up B20.


Just checked the manual for my 2019 GMC Sierra 3500 HD and that

on page 47 of the 2019 Duramax Diesel Supplement they state

"Do not use a diesel blend containing more than 20% biodiesel by volume"

So it appears that B20 is acceptable.

I will stop by my local GMC dealer and check with a real person to make sure that the truck can actually run on B20 with out issues.
I spent years working at Gm dealerships. I can assure you that most people working there don't know squat. Call GM Customer Service if you want the correct answer.

I think this is more state regulations than fuel station choice. Personally, traveling across the country I have encountered regen problems from buying fuel in western states. I think it is not only the high amount of bio but what the bio is made from.

Dig it out on the Internet. Teh administration increased the mandatory amount of ethanol that must be incorporated into gasoline. I don't remember the amount. Biodiesel for Soy etc also,I think but don't quote me.
