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

true ... I hear that. Did you buy your lye and methanol locally? Was it hard to come by?

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.

I'm just gonna keep it, was thinking that's just more work when I try to start up again. Actually I think I'm gonna takes some barrels out today. But if anyone is in the Sebring area I'll be glad to show you how to make it.
