I pulled into a local station that used to sell B20, but they have replaced it with a fuel called Propel HPR. I wanted to research it before trying it, but didn't find a lot on the internet other than promotional stuff.

Seems like it is made from oils and fats like bio-diesel, but a different process. Sounds like it lowers the carbon footprint significantly over petro diesel, but probably not as much CO2 reduction as bio-diesel.

Says it improves torque and horsepower, but is silent about mileage, so I am guessing it is less...

It says that it is compatible with all engines, but does anybody know more about how it effects our old Toyota diesels?

I should have also noted it is cheap, $2.60/gal. which is more than $0.40 cheaper than ULSD #2 is here.
