I'm not doing it right now. I might start up again in January. Then I'll just build another system. It's just sitting in the garage right now. I did it for about 4 months really enjoyed I think of it like a hobby. It's something to do on a weekend and when your done you have $90 in fuel. Better then playing golf

Like I said I got a complete kit for $1000.00 includes 4 metal drums and a 12v transfer pump too. Or if you don't want the methanol and lye the sysem would be $500. for the appleseed and wash tank.
