Is anyone using the DSE biofuel?

Just curious if anyone is using the DSE bio method. I've been burning it for about a month. Best I ever got pulling my fifth wheel before was 11.3 mpg. Just made a pull last weekend 340 mile round trip and got 13.2. power seems to be the same, and I haven't had to change the fuel filter yet either. 78 cents a gallon makes me smile too.

Be very careful with that stuff. It is extremely hard on injectors

The additives used in the DSE are different than whats used in regular bio. And I wouldnt burn ATF in a go cart.

I would just go the route of making your own processor and do it that way.

Do a search here and on some biodiesel forums on DSE and Diesel Secret Energy and see for yourself

I will find the link for him becuase I dont want the discussion to start again. Big thing is, DSE is a fuel blend, that in reality it will run the same with just using all the parts of the recipe and not even bothering with DSE additive. Its a BLEND, of fuels to mimic diesel viscosity, and combustiblity. Pretty much taking paint and dumping in paint thinner, thats all it is.

Biodiesel is far from what DSE is. Its an actual chemical process that converts the molecular structure of WVO, to a single stand alone molecule with similar viscosity, and combustibility properties of diesel fuel.

DSE #1

DSE #2

DSE#3

Exactly correct and I am sure you agree that DSE is hard on the fuel system

Injectors, fuel pump, but most importantly, the cylinder walls and rings. Its straight up unreacted Vegi oil, thinned out with kerosene, Unleaded Gas, and snake piss.
The unreacted oil when engine is started up cold cokes on the rings, and accelerates the internal wear of the engine.
