Probably Old Hat, but...

I'm sure at one point or another this has been covered before, but I haven't frequent this forum alot, so I'm sure I missed it and I can't find the search funtion anymore to search for it, but I was wondering what all is involved in bio-diesel making, what is the best for it, what mods you have to make to your truck to be able to handle this and to how will it handle being mixed with the ULSD if the need arises on a trip, best ways to store it for future use(I guess basically as much info as your willing to type out for a newbie in the world of bio-fuel). I do have some performance mods on my truck and plannin a few in the upcoming month or so, will that impact this as well? I apologize for the older members of the forum for posting this type of topic, if it would be better to send me replys via the p.m. system in order not to clog up the forum with this, that is fine. I was just thinking what all was involved with it, negative sides to it(cetane, flashpoint, lubrication, etc.(I'm not saying the before mention are negative or positive, those just came to mind as ones that I'm concentrating on)). Thanks for the help to a newbie in bio-fuel.

Mixes perfect
High lubrication
racing fuel for diesels, read articles and youll see up to 4 cetane points higher
quiets diesel "knocking" sound
runs without any modifications depending on envirornment temps( may need antigel)
stores for years without any treatment because of the high amount of vitamin e wont let bacteria grow

as with all things it depends on the quality of the manufacture. Cali producers have been setting back the industry because of the junk they have been putting out.
