Oils

I have been studing and researching bio-diesel for over a year. I did a report for one of my classes on diesel alternatives. When I get home I will pull that report and attach the list of oils that could be used.

Yep, flaxseed oil is what Bonds said he was using. He's going to feel silly when your PS beats his home run record...

With so many choices, Biofuels should be main stream.

As I had said before I have been looking into biofuels for over a year, due to the price incraeses. With the many choices in oils that a diesel can be run, why is it taking so long to produce a biofuel? I was going to attach some articles but I am having trouble attaching the articles that many of you may find interesting, if you are interesed I could email them.

How much do some of these oils cost if you buy them in large quantities? (like 55 gallon drums, etc) Depending on the part of the country, cottonseed oil, peanut oil, corn oil, or whatever should be available...

i have not checked recently but i would think it would be less than or close to 3.00 per gallon. It has gone up since eveything else has gone up.
2 years ago i could buy it (in 5 gallon cubies) for like 2.25 per gallon...at that time diesel was 2.75 i think.

Actually FLAX oil should be avoided as it is a drying oil and is very prone to polymerization.
Look for engine damage from the first tank!
Somewhere on the net is a list of oils, I think it also has the iodine levels.
I can't remember all the bad ones but, Flax, linseed and walnut come to mind
