Bio-furnace

If you want to make furnace oil from fryer oil there are several vendors on the web that sell the equipment. You can also obtain equipment to burn used engine oil but it requires filtration and a oil heater to reduce the viscosity enough to be injected by the burner. A significant issue with fry oil is temperature-below 45 degrees there is some problem with the stuff gelling so check it out on one the web sites.

Hi jack, Sorry to hear about your loss, I know how it feels. Lost $140,000 in a fight with a local "small town"............. But that was about 6 years ago and life goes on..........anyway. I belong to a forum for just what you need!!

Try this!! http://groups.yahoo.com/group/altfuelfurnace/ Great bunch of guy's and TONS of info from people that have been doing this for years! Myself I use Biodiesel because it cost less money to convert. Good luck! If you have any questions just ask.FABMANDELUX
