Filled the tank with biodiesel.
After use it probably sat in the tank about a month and then it went downhill from then.  The truck only ran a few miles (less than 50) a week.

Tried to be a good citizen and used biodiesel in my dump truck.  That fuel gummed up my injection pump and injectors.  Cost me some $$$ to repair the pump and replace the injectors.  Had to drain the tank but could not get all of the fuel out so the problem happened a second time.  So much for being "environmentally conscious".

Makule,
How long does the fuel sit in your dump truck?

My Chevi Dmax is probably neglected diesel east of the Mississippi. Did you run straight BIO? or a blend?
I run 5% to 10% blend in mine few times a year.  Per my butt dino the best fuel I have ever run was bio from a co-op near Grand Island, NE.

Guys in my Chevi club have lost injectors due to abrasive stuff getting through or h20 into the injectors.

I used to be in a constant state of improvement.  Now I'm in a constant state of renovation.
