Making biodiesel for my 95 psd with no mods

I want to make my own biodiesel for my 95 psd, I can get used veggie oil but I heard would have to change my fuel lines because methanol would eat my fuel lines.... what is the truth to this????

I AM NOT GONNA CONVERT MY TRUCK TO ANYTHING except my fuel lines, I want it roentgen can stop using the bio anytime I want and not have to do anything...

Let me here your opinions

I'm thinking of this machine,what do you'll think???

You dont need to change fuel lines. What is the climate like where you are? Bio will gell in colder climates, so you may need to blend with d2 if/when it gets colder. You will also need several spare fuel filters as the bio will "clean" your fuel system out... As for the processor I would do alot more research before jumping into any equipment. There are alot of different oprions. You will also need a good heat and settle setup to remove large chunks and water prior to processing. An appleseed processor is a good start-up processor and is inexpensive to get up and running if you can find a good used hwh... Good luck!

Hey guys,
Go to diesel secret energy web site, check it out it's what I run all the time, it works great and it's super easy, there are no modifications to your truck at all.

I highly do not recomend following this advice. Google search DSE.
If it was this easy, everyody would be doing it.

What DSE claims defies chemistry, logic, and IMHO good sence.....

A PSD will run on piss, vinegar, and waste oil and antifreeze mixture.

I dont recomend it, but I bet it will run like a champ. Question is, for how long.

Long enough to do some major damage & cost you big $$$$ in repairs. D2 is cheaper to run then DSE when you add the repair costs in.

i have run into 2 different guys down here in TX running veggie oil straight into their tank, no mods, supposedly used stuff just ran it through filtration process couple times, then put it in, 1 mixed it with his diesel, other with a obs was running it straight, had 50 gallon drum in back of his truck with the stuff. with diesel going up .10 at a time, starting to look at doing bio myself and found a source of used oil and if necessary couple used conversion processor kits that are fairly affordable.
