Progress Update

Well, I dove in some time back after a couple months of reading , and started learning to make bio in an appleseed setup. With the help of some on here , and Mr. Graydon Blair, I have come a long way!! LOL!! At this point, I have not bought fuel since my first batch. I hav put as of tonight 126 gallons in my truck. All with no problems whatsoever. Changed 1 fuel filter. Have made 160ish gallons of finished product. Kinda getting my own little process working by learning from each batch. It is fun, and sometimes a challenge depending on your oil source. LOL. I just went to the SSS on my fuel and came back on it too!! Carried 30 gallons in 5 gallon cans. That was a little goal of mine that I managed to accomplish. Had to make 2 batches in 5 days, but I got it done. Just wanted to post and let you guys know Im still brewin!

When wash water and shakem up are soap free, I transfer to the dry tank and dry the batch. Normally I do the first wash as I pump into the wash tank(up thru 6 inches of water). 2 mist washes, and 2 bubble washes od 4-6 hours each. I usually start the bubbler when I leave for work, and change the water when I come home for lunch.

No dino, but because of the difference in ignition temperature, power is down somewhat. Just dont know how much.
