tewbert is starting off with a positive reputation.
anyone using Magnesol??

Has anyone heard of or used Magnesol? I've read some info on the product and it claims to replace the washing step in biodiesel with mixing this product which absorbs impurities from the biodiesel after the glycerin has been removed and the methanol dried out. Instead of the wash you would mix Magnesol and then filter the particulates out, leaving a filter cake that can be used for compost for ex. The article estimated an additional cost of 20cts/gal of biodiesel. any thoughts???

Tried it, won't use it again. I tried it when I first started making BD. Total waste of time and money! I don't wash my bio anymore, and it only costs me 30 cents/gal, so why add 20cents/gal to my costs? FABMANDELUX.
