6.0L meets 5% biofuel

So I was running on fumes and I needed fuel something terrible, so I stopped at the first place I saw fuel, the place was $2.45 a gallon for diesel and it was green and 5% biomass diesel fuel. I didn't notice my truck run any difference, how ever my fuel millage tanked from 20ish to 13. anyone know why?

If not the fuel , I have seen some gauges react that way and give false readings when run so low before recalibrating later and getting back to normal .

Never, never, never give up.
