i burned the bean for the first time!!!

Finally found a fuel station that sells bio. it was only B2 and ULSD and I couldnt really tell a difference in the way the truck ran. I figure at 2% blend and I bought 28 gallons equals a little over a half gal of pure bio. So at 10 MPG i contributed 4-5 miles of clean burning bio. Hopefully I can find more of this stuff on my journeys and do my part to support american farmers, decrease demand for foreign oil, clean the atmosphere, etc. etc.

That's a great book.. Girl Mark wrote that... Check out this processor and what she had to say about it.

If you decide to start making your own, I might be able to get you going. Whatever you decide, just stay away from plastic processors.
