Silverdiesel has a spectacular aura about
The renewable biofuel that replaces ULSD

Anyone hear of this? The Dodge Ecodiesel and TDICLUB forums are talking about this.
Only available in major markets in California right now.
Claims are better than equal to D2 ULSD and can be run in engines with DPF/CAT-SCR. In fact CARB likes this renewable as it is even cleaner than regular biodiesel.
It uses anamal and fish oil fats and is made quite differently than biodiesel thus classed as a renewable. Also read a spoof on its BTU rating being better than bio and to have a cetane rating of up to 90%.
Folks with CR and HPFP VW vehicles are using this formula with no problems.
I believe we have that new and wonderful renewable coming up on us and owners with modern diesels can run a fuel totally away from Dino diesel without getting fuel into the oil and ruining the engine. The other forums also claim this fuel is less expensive...

Re: The renewable biofuel that replaces ULSD

Does anyone know if this fuel is Chrysler approved? I'd like to try it since there's a station only a few miles from my house selling it and it's priced lower than ULSD.

Re: The renewable biofuel that replaces ULSD

WTF?!? I gotta pay more attention. There are 2 stations in San Diego, never heard of it. I'll fill up with HPR next week and see if I notice anything.

Re: The renewable biofuel that replaces ULSD

I'm in the middle of my first tank right now. I can't say I notice any difference in mpg or performance, but it's certainly no worse. Since it's currently more than 10% cheaper than ULSD, cleaner, and renewable I think it's a win, win, win.

p.s. I use OptiLube additive in both ULSD and Diesel HPR.

Re: The renewable biofuel that replaces ULSD

What I want to know is how well this will work with the GDE tune. They mess with timing and injection quantities and that 75 cetane might cause some odd artifacts in the ignition sequence.

I will let you know by weeks end. I got 3/8 of a tank of D2. Gonna run it down real low and fill up with HPR probably Wednesday or Thursday. I got a high speed run to work and back of about 20 miles and a couple miles of stop and go traffic. Should make for a good test ground.
