Government mandates and subsidies are increasing the amount of biodiesel added to diesel fuel. Engine manufacturers vary in how much biodiesel blend can safely be used the their engines. Audi, BMw, Mercedes limit is 5%. Cummins allows B20 in only 2002 and newer engines.

Recent discussion here with some detail. B20 Bio Diesel

Biodiesel is one heck of a solvent. If your coach is a bit older or has never used biodiesel, don't be surprised if you experience some plugged fuel filters until the tank and fuel lines are cleaned. FWIW: I have a Ford Powerstroke Diesel that never used biodiesel until I had it six or seven years. I was concerned about the tank and lines getting cleaned and plugging the fuel filter but never had any problems with it.
