Washing my bio fuel

As you probly know I've been at this bio fuel making for a while now and I'm at 107,000 miles on my 04' 6.0 now and running great. I haven't had alot of time to do the research but wondering if anyone knows of or if you could throw some ideas at me to change my way of washing and if anyone of you are doing it. I'm tired of the water wash and all the mess and would like to do something I've heard here called a DRY WASH.

Info, pics, greatly appriciated.

Dry Wash Biodiesel

I am setting up my kegs this weekend if my purolite shows up friday like DHL says it should!

Water sucks, i know! Let the bio settle for as long as you can before sending it through the resin. the more time to settle, the longer the life of the resin. My setup will allow me to settle for about a month before it hits the resin.

Just a basic 01 F350 CCLB SRW -Good from a far but far from good

the magnisol wash mentioned on the above site is what I've used and it is much faster without the long settle time. it is a little more expensive but hey with fuel this cheap you can afford to splurg... it also produces much clearer fuel almost like petro diesel or kerosene
