personally im just not a fan of creating bio-dizzle at home. Since i live at home with my parents, garage space is a premium. a bio refinery setup, even a small one requires alot of space for the large tanks. Ive been researching a filter/storage setup that uses an 55 gal. barrel and an electric water heater as the 2 main storage tanks. That setup is less then half the size as the smallest bio refinery, and should only cost about $600 to build.

Since I only have 1 diesel right now, i dont see a need for a refinery. As a side venture id like to see if there was a demand for bio/refined wvo in my area. If there was id would invest in a system to make a little money on the side.

did you check out the guy on Powerstroke.org that has his set up using an old HotWater tank? Looked pretty cheap.

i personally know of 3 people that run veggie oil in their powerstrokes and one guy that runs it in his benz
they strain it and run it in the summer months

only downside i was told was more frequent filter changes but no expensive wvo setup
take it for what its worth
personally if i could get a hook up on bio i would buy it in the 100-500 gallon varieties
i know about 6 or 7 people that would buy it from me if i got into making it
alot of these waste oil places are not giving the oil away for free anymore and the majority of them already have 5 guys taking what they give away or charge for
i would strongly suggest finding a source first and start storing it before dropping 4 k on a set up

Is it possible to run waste motor oil in a diesel?

I just picked up an oil burner for my garage and have been reading about what fuels can be used.


Waste motor oil

Waste veggie oil

HHO

Kerosene

Biodiesel

These can all be used in the furnace and I wonder if the same about a diesel engine.
