Bio, Here we Come!

I just secured my first weekly pickup of WVO. It won't amount to much at first, 30 gals a week or so, but its a start.

My processing tanks will be on a truck from Iowa next week.. then I've just to get a drum of methanol and some misc. valves and pumps.

Going from fabman's example over in the biofuel forum, I think I'll use magnesol for a chemical wash, so that I'm not waiting days for batches to "Dry"

Next will be a diesel powered Volkswagon Jetta or Passat... 40mpg for less than $10k with a fuel est. cost of $1.00gal? SOLD!

Well, My first Dr. Pepper method batch was a horrible failure, haha

One of the jugs I picked up at jimbos was a oddball smaller container of peanut oil (others were soy oil). This oil looked to be unused, so I used it for the test batch. What I got was about 2" of bio and about 1 liter of soap sludge..
(I'm thinking that just the fact that was old / sat outside /absorbed moisture possibly made it more acidic)


For the 2nd test, i picked up some virgin canola oil, and from what I've seen so far, it looks to have worked better.. I won't know until the morning when I can get back down to the shop and see what settled out.

I got some pics of the failed batch, and I'll get some of the (hopefully) successful batch in the morning

Happy Easter everybody

Man if I tried going biodiesel, it would be just my luck that diesel would drop below 1.50 a gallon.

Here's the failed batch: soap!

And the successful batch using 100% new oil:

Successful 3/27 test: (here you dissolve 3ml of your bio into 27ml of methanol and check to make sure the bio completely dissolves and doesn't settle)

Click the image to open in full size.

I'm going to play around with a mini water-wash on this batch tomorrow and see if i can clear it up.

I figure at 1 Liter of bio, I have 1/2 a tank of dino in my truck, this works out to like 1/55 or roughly B2.

I hate to waste it, but I'm going to run many many more tests on this before it goes in the truck
