They sell a kit to make ~real~ biodiesel. Their website looks good to me but we all know that looks can be deceiving. Here is the link:

I think this is the kit Stacy David on the 'Trucks' tv show spotlighted a few weeks ago. After watching that and thinking about going to fast food places to collect rancid deep fryer oil not to mention the PITA to brew it in my garage I was very grateful I'm not so poor that I have to screw around with that stuff.

The more I look the more I think this is a scam. I was interested because the price of diesel is almost $3.00/gal where I live. It would be great to make my own fuel if this had been the real deal. Thanks for the input Steve.

Here it was in episode 2005-13

If you keep an eye on their schedule I'm sure you can catch it when they play it again.

I know what you're saying about $3/gallon if you consider you'll need to buy methanol, their emulsifyer, acquire the fry oil, mix it and filter it, then pump it in...

...well as for me fuel would have to be a LOT more expensive to make it worth all that hassle. YMMV

Kinda like brewing your own beer! LOL Not worth the time for a single user,IMHO. If you would start to manufacture it and turn a dollar,then maybe.

I have this theory that we could water alot of things down and get by,like fuels,paints,chemicals,etc.

Anyone out there willing to put in one gallon of water on a tankful? Let me know how it works out.

Prologue:
After making a few more phone calls I have decided to steer clear of this form of ~biodiesel~ because the way they instruct you to ~mix~ it does NOT remove the glycerin. Apparently, not removing the glycerin from the WVO will cause it to build up on the piston skirts/cylinder wall and eventually (~40k miles) cause total engine failure. Not worth the price of admission in my book.
