Titration

I would like to learn how to properly titrate a sample of WVO but here's the problem. I have read carefully the steps and the supplies involved but I seem to still be thouroghly confused by this simple process. I read and read and read and still it does not become clear. I think it would help if I could actually see it done. Does anyone know of a link to a site where a video could be downloaded for viewing. I think if I can watch something like that it'll become much clearer to me.

Thank you

Jonathan

That is a great article.
The only way it would be better is if it was a real test, not a fake test.

Its kinda confuseing a bit, i had to read it a few times to completly understand the concepts.

You can get more with a kind word and a 2x4 than you can with just a kind word.

What do you mean a fake test? That was an actual titration.

Titrating can be confusing at first.. but once you do it a couple times you find its only a 60 second procedure and is very easy to do..

No figures on the actual displayed test for reference.

But yes, i belive once you do it a few times it should be easy.

I've seen it done on 2 different TV shows. Though the 2 guys who did it were complete morons compared to the other guy i watched on trucks. tracey i think was his name. I'm still wondernig why they got rid of him.

I've seen in done two or three times on TV..

In all three demonstrations, there was some serious misinformation..

You are correct, i did not include any actual titration value numbers because I thought they were irrelevant.

The one on trucks was all correct when i watched him do it.
He didn't show all the steps, thats all.
He properly titrated a sample, the simplest way i've seen yet. And mixed a batch on TV.

When i saw the other guys doing it, they had all sorts of protective equipment out, and all sorts of crazy tools and such. Tottal overkill and waste of time compared to the guy on trucks.

Looked it up.
Stacy, the old host of trucks. He did it.
I think it was freedomfuel america or something was the kit he used.
It was the simplest setup i've seen you can buy, and it only costed 1000 buckarooes.

Now your thinking! It pays to do your homework.

One of the best places to find home brew information is at:
www.biodiesel.infopop.cc

We call it the "fool meister"...

Anyone who dares to react biodiesel in a plastic tank like that better have really good home insurance..
