Older diesels may do fine on B20 or even higher, but many newer ones (EPA Tier 3 emissions control or higher) will not. My Interstate, which has a 3-liter Mercedes turbo-diesel meeting Tier 3 specs, clearly states in the Mercedes Sprinter owner's manual, to use no more than B5 biodiesel. B20 will hurt it in a variety of very expensive ways.

I do still have a Kubota tractor that is diesel and it has been trouble free but then again I bought it new. It also has none of the EPA BS that has caused a lot of issues with more modern diesels like the EGR coolers on the 6.0L Fords. I would not have anything that uses DEF. Yes biodiesel can cause seal problems. It also cleans any crud out of your fuel system and can clog filters.
