  • Homebrew Biodiesel, Success!! with photos.

    I've done it!
    My 1st successful batch.

    Another view of the finished and winterized product.


    Winterized?
    Yes, down to 10 degrees F with 4 parts homebrew biodiesel and 1 part this stuff below.


    The entire cast of this little production minus the blender.
    Left to right are:
    The 2 litre pop bottles for making and washing the biodiesel.
    The yellow bottle was the methanol.
    The glass bottles are the "holding tanks" for the finished biodiesel and raw glycerin.
    The now discontinued Red Devil Lye.
    (I found another and better source already though. )
    Funnel.
    Pot used to heat and dry the washed biodiesel.
    Original plastic bottle the new soy oil came in.





    My poor 50 cent pop bottle took a beating after I drank the pop from it. :naughty:



    Here's a view of the leftover glycerin with a teeny little bit of biodiesel left on top of it.


    I learned to do this at http://forums.biodieselnow.com/default.asp
    Kinda cool to be both like OPEC and yet another American refiner.

      A week or two ago the TV show TRUCKS on Spike TV showed how to do this.

      They made it look pretty easy. Congratulations on your success!

          looks like a meth lab to me....

            That is what I was thinking.

If you walk into a Starbucks and order a "decaf grande? half-soy, half-low fat, iced vanilla, double-shot, gingerbread cappuccino, extra dry, light ice, with one Sweet-n'-Low and one NutraSweet," ooh, you're a huge *******.

                Has anyone heard if the biodiesel is working in home furnaces?

                  Forget the furnaces, I can live with blankets piled onto me.

                    I don't see why it wouldn't, home furnaces are so crude as to burn nearly anything and BD being nearly the same as D it wouldn't burn any differently except to extend the life of the burners.
