First Batch of Bio... WHOOP!

Followed the Dr. Pepper bottle method.

I used corn oil and a tablespoon of lard. I used the lard because I heard it would solidify the glycerine on the bottom. And it sure nuff did.

White/translucent waxy looking crap on the bottom and crystal clear golden tinted biodiesel on top.

Tonight I am gonna wash it, let it dry, then drop it into my tank.

Then I will try to process the glycerine... we will see how that goes.

Can't wait to upscale the process!
