Thumbs up Bio Diesel Good for Particulate Filters!

It looks like Bio Diesel may actually re-generate the Particualte Filters used on the newer "Clean Diesel" systems....

So maybe with some Mixture (like B10) maybe it is possible to keep the fiters clean all the time? Who knows, but interesting reading.

Sorry if this was already brought up - I couldn't find it.

Thanks for the post. Good to know that at least in regards to the particulate traps, biodiesel use won't be a problem...
