Need a little help. I live in Northern VA and haven't found methanol for less than about $7-$8 / gal. If I use one gallon per 5 gallons of wvo, than lose about a 3rd of that to glycerine and other waste, I still spend about $2 /gallon before electricity, time, and other expenses.
Does anyone know a good (cheaper) supplier in NoVa or surrounding areas or online?
Also, if I used Ethanol instead of Methanol, what are the pros and cons?
I just finished my first processor. It is an appleseed and should be able to produce about one tank of bio per batch. If this goes well, I will work on Methanol recovery next.
If you recover methanol you will drive the price even lower.
Ethanol is a little harder to use because it must be very dry and you will have to pay taxes on it, just incase you decide to quench your thirst.
