seattle-bellingham bio brewers out there?

Hi and a good 2008 to you. I'm have everything needed to assemble several biodiesel reactors to fuel my '95 F-250, '90 E-350 and am looking for folks around here who have experience. I'm thinking about using magnasol to wash the bio and skipping the water wash procedure. Where do I get magnasol around here? I'm planning on using potassium hydroxide. Is it compatible with magnasol?
I'm in the Skagit valley area and want to swap reactor ideas and maybe parts. ow about it? Thanks

Crap, there's a dude in Bothel that does his own. I forgot! I will try to get you his web page address. He's got a 6.0 but I doubt he's on here.

I'm not familuar with magnasol, but if your going to make true bio-diesel I really think you need to wash the fuel after processing. I'm just a green as the next rookie when it comes to homebrew B100, but I remember certain things....wash B100 after processing, change filters regularly, don't pee ino the wind.

washing biodiesel

thanks, I will wash and test the bio for soap, etc, this time before oxidising it in my engine. Yesterday my electrical system went haywire so its first priority. My knowledge of the electrical system needs work also.
