There is a fuel spec for this now so it should be pretty safe and the lubricity and detergent actions (not to mention the slightly cleaner burning) are all good reason to run this every few tankfuls (if you fill up with a 1/4 tank left you can alternate between B20 and dino fuel and get the lubricity you need).

Since I never update this thread I figured everyone watching deserves a picture from the day to day life of this truck.....
Pulled a big FedEx box truck out of the ditch on the way home from work today. Those things are kinda heavy and don't really have any tow points ( lame ). It took quite a bit of pressure in 4wd low range on the strap to get him to move sideways and then out of the ditch onto the road. I think I made the drivers day
Things like this is why I don't think I can ever give up driving a full size truck around.....
Are those chains on the steer wheels???
I thought you want them on the drive wheels...

Pulls like this always make a guy feel good. Haha. I came across a semi (just the tractor) pulled over right in main street once last summer when I still had my Dakota. I drove around the block assessing the situation twice before I stopped and asked. I was REEEEEAAAAALLLLY hoping he needed a pull. Haha... I stopped and asked him and indeed he was stranded. He had a push button automatic transmission that was not going into gear. (First one of those I had ever seen) unfortunately he got it into gear while I was standing there talking to him. Woulda been a great pic pulling a truck with that Dakota. Even if it was just the cab. Haha
I live for big blizzards. Grab some tow chains and head out looking for stucks! A guy could really make good money if he accepted the money offered by the embarrassed drivers. The pride of "nah, just another tally in the scoreboard for my truck" is worth more than the tow $$!

I should have just kept pulling him on towards the shop FedEx is a big company, they would have never missed that little truck.....
Slight hijack but is the front axle driven on that truck, or are the chains just for steering and braking?
Many years ago, in Colorado Springs I was leaving work and a single axle tractor with short trailer was sitting askew halfway up a long ice covered hill. I offered a tug, and he initially declined, but finally relented. There was my 69 bronco on the end of the strap pulling on this truck, I could turn the wheels and drift across the road back and forth like a hyper active poodle on a leash. I had just enough traction to help him though, we made it to the top. He was laughing when he climbed out of the cab and so was I.
