Just wondering about adding a bit of B100 to RUG (Regular unleaded)?

Driving home tonight I was thinking...what could be the advantages to adding a small percentage of B100 to RUG for FE? If it was kept at 2.5-5% I don't think it would cause and "running problems". The BioDiesel would also act as a lubricator. Lastly, the extra BTUs might do interesting things to the mix. Not to mention the possible reduced COs. Has anyone tried it?

Check your oil and look for polymerization. A guy on biodiesel.infopop tried it and it leaked passed his rings on start up and thickened his oil in 1000 miles. I guess if you start and warmup on pure gas it wouldn't be a problem, but you are defeating the purpose.

I ran out of Biodiesel befor I could to enough testing, for the most part what I started out doing was checking to see if the B100 mixed with gasoline, would foul up spark plugs, or o2 sensors, as far as I could tell with the few hundred miles that I put on my 4 stroke motorcycle, it had no negative affects, it seemed to burn compleatly, it didn't detract from the power of the 12.5hp engine (part of why I chose a small motorcycle to test, a drop in power would show), but I wasn't able to proove that my gas mileage changed, up or down, after taking in to acount the amount of B100 that I added, other then the fact that the B100 was acting as a direct replacment for the gasoline.
If you don't want to go back and re-read my old posts, I was running a 10:1 mix in a honda cb125, altho a 5:1 mix worked "ok" I think my motorcycle engine runs to fast (10,000rpm) for a compleat burn to happen.

Ryland is that % of mic correct? I run 2 stroke snowmobiles that make in excess of 300Hp without NOS, with NOS 350-400hp and we run mixtures of 40:1. 5-10:1 that thing would be a smoke machine and that would realy screw something up on a FI car.
