Anyone have a "how to make homemade biodiesel" link?

I am researching on how to make biodiesel (for myself), and I would like to know if there is an "all in one" resource on making homemade biodiesel.

I can get used oil, but I need to locate the equipment, locally if possible.

I know there are people here running "home brew", so can you pass on some information and know how to this subject?

here is another site with lots of reading, although they look down their nose at homebrewers. National Biodiesel Board - www.biodiesel.org - www.nbb.org

there is also a couple of books "Biodiesel America and From the fryer to the fuel tank" both are pretty good books..

tjbeggs recomendation is the most complete web site for "how to".
It also has processor plans on the site.
Journey to forever is also good but doesn't get updated often

I am so used to using a manual/book to do what I need to do, and I seem to feel more comfortable with a book next to me as I go.
I guess I can print the pages that I need, but it seems to go against being "green"!
We'll see, 18 dollars for a book isn't that bad.

You guys will probably be seeing me around here everyday, anyone want to sell me their 7.3 liter Superduty?

Do you know if anyone is taking a chance and running B100 in the new 6.4?

What about B100 in a 6.0? I know a person running B100 in a 03/04 6.0, with occasional B20 use. Seem to be running okay.

The reason I ask is, 7.3s are rare here, but 6.0s are still available with somewhat lower mileage (I don't have a diesel - YET!)

i put together a small how-to PDF a while back. It is basically a journal of my early stages of bio production w/ pics. Back when I was making 4 gallon batches.

PM me your email addy if you are interested.

One of the most recognized homebrewers and authoress of a how to book is a lady that uses the screen name of Girl Mark.

Her web site is Biodiesel classes with Maria 'girl Mark' Alovert, summer-fall 2008

She also puts out a very good how to book that can be ordered on her web site

Not completely sure of your question. Do you mean unwashed, washed, or commercial biodiesel?
