I agree- Be careful. On the other hand- Im almost certain to have an explosion, he had to have some sort of flame present. I could be completely wrong, but thats my thinking on this. Methanol-Flammable. Dont use open flames.

Simply plugging in a pump or heating element can cause a spark at the socket and ignite meth fumes.
Snuff out your cig before measuring out your meth!

A local restaurant owner here has a bioD processor out behind his restaurant near his dumpster. He used the used oil to make bioD for his van. His methanol drum was stored in full summer sun. There was an explosion and he almost lost his life two summers ago. Today he is healed and is once again making bioD, but his area now is under an awning.

Yet another reason to run on WVO.

I steered away from the Biodiesel route for exactly the reasons above. I wasn't real keen on keeping big drums of methanol and lye in my garage. Plus there are a lot more steps you have to take to make it.

Exactly, i'm not saying DONT do it, i am saying "if you screw up even once it has the potential to FUBAR you. So just practice caution at all times with this stuff. Yes you can die in your car tomorrow but your car is designed with safety restraints and airbags etc....your bio reactor should also be designed for safety.
