biodiesel and contamination

First, is anyone using biodiesel? Second, if you're getting it from local restaurants, are you having any problems with contaminents in the wvo?

Had an 'oil guy' at a restaurant show try and sway me off of pursuing bioD saying that there's lots of people screwing up motors because of contaminents. Course, he's in the business of collecting WVO, so guys like me would be a competition for his raw material.

Just looking for input.

Thx

Waste vegetable oil isn't biodiesel. There is a chemical transesterification process to make it into biodiesel. There are people using filtered WVO in diesels with varying degrees of success. On the other hand, there are plenty of people processing it and making very good biodiesel and running it with no problems at all. There are some very good web sites that go through the whole process step by step, just do a search on Google.

I understand that WVO isn't biodiesel.....that's not what I asked. I asked if anyone making BD was having any contamination with the WVO they're using.


Looking to get a smattering of feedback before getting launched on the venture.


thx
