I have been running WVO in my 2 tank system for almost 3 years & 60k miles & have been very happy with the results. Have saved a ton of money. I have been gradually building up alot of sources & have what I consider a very healthy supply of VO coming in every month. So much so that I have started to sell some. I have been selling for about 8 months now & have one steady guy that buys from me regularly & 2 other guys that buy once in a while. I am selling my oil for slightly less then half the cost of D2. With fuel prices as high as they are I expected that more people would be interested. But the cost of converting a vehicle is turning alot of people away.
The vast majority of the oil I get is very good quailty & lightly used. The rest I will continue to burn as VO in my heated system.
So I am thinking that making bio would attract alot more people. Even though I have been in the VO world for a while now I know very little about making bio. It never interested me until now.
First question is safety. Messing with Methanol & lye is the main reason why I chose SVO over bio in the beginning so it still concerns me. Is making bio as dangerous as I always thought it was? What do I have to do make sure I don't slowly kill myself?
I have alot of reading to do to bring myself up to speed on bio but another question I have is what is considered a good bio processor? There is a guy locally selling this processor:Freedom Fueler Biodiesel Processor
. He wants $2000 for them. Also I have a old 40 gallon water heater that I could make an appleseed out of. From what I have read the Bio Pro-190 is the cats azz but I'm not shelling out 10 grand for one. Not now anyway. I would like to be able to make between 1 & 200 hundred gallons of bio a week.
One other question is what is the 3/27 test? Is that the best test to do to make sure you have made good bio?
