    For sure. B10 will make a mess in a bulk tank or a saddle tank if it sits for long. It acts hydroscopic and collects moisture. Fortunately, it’s not currently distributed in Alaska or mandated.

    Here is a tank on the genset set I'm working on that had about 130 gallons of fuel sitting in it for who knows how long. I'm glad to hear that I'm not the only person who thinks bio is the biggest con job in any industry. I never got a subsidy if my business was bad or I made bad decisions. Why are we paying farmers to grow corn that has no use but to pollute our fuel stocks.

    Why turn your food into fuel? I am VERY pro ag and I will make that statement. I think there are better options.
