Fish oil biodiesel

Does anyone have experience with fish oil biodiesel for 200/300tdi? I know fish oil is converted to biodiesel in Alaska for use with large diesel plant engines.

Interested to know what sort of smell can be expected from B20 and B100?

Cheers
Steve H

I was confused as well at first. My first thought was, "Those fish oil pills people take for their heart arent cheap..."

Yep, I'm talking biodiesel rendered from fish oil produced from fish processing plants, not frying oil.
