Ok, Since you said PLZ, I'll help.............First a couple of questions, can you cut,weld, fabricate, etc? Do you have a shop to work in? Are you a good scrounger? If the answer to those questions is yes, you can build your own processer for little $$$$$$$. If the answer is No, than you are better off buying a processer kit. B-100 supply has them for under $500. Do you live in an apartment? If the answer to that is yes, you can forget brewing Biodiesel, it can be messy, smelly, and "tic-off" the management!

Let me know what you can do on your own, and if you have a good place to build, and run a processer, and I'll try and help you through this.

Yeah I live in a house and have some room to operate but I dont own a welding kit. I might be able to borrow one. Im mechanically inclined with a strong work ethic but Im no master fabricator. If when you say B100 you mean pure WVO then Im cool with that. However if B100 is a purveyor of processors and they have some quality processors for under 5 bones then maybe I should take a look. Would you mind posting a link? Hey thanks alot for any help Fabman!!!

B100 is pure biodiesel. It what you put in your tank after the WVO goes through the processor.

Fab already mentioned the addy, just didn't link to it. B100supply.com

Phydeaux88 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.Phydeaux88 is gaining momentum as a positive member of FTE.
B100 is pure Biodiesel.
WVO is Waste Vegetable Oil.
Vegetable oil is the raw material used to make Biodiesel - they are not interchangable.
