just my opinion, but make it into bio. Heard unheated veg oil isn't good for engines, but know some do it without problems...

You can make a small batch of biodiesel with this oil, using methanol (red bottle HEET) from Autozone, etc. It is kind of a neat science experiment!

Good catch, wouldn't work too well using Isoprophyl Alcohol...

I know almost everyone that's making BioD is using methanol, but...and I say but, I've heard of a couple of guys using Ethanol or Isoprophyl. Maybe Don will chime in and educate me on some of these guys using those "other" alcohols. You can also run a diesel engine on either WVO or SVO...the catch is the engine has to be up to operating temperature and the oil needs to be around 180F to that "flows" like diesel fuel. Check out VegiStroke/DFA, they sell a complete kit for PSD powered fords and Come-Apart Dodge trucks so that they can run WVO/SVO.

I always have to read the bottle because I confuse the red and yellow! You will need the red for titration though.

Ok, I'll chime in......I've experimented with Ethanol. It takes more and is problematic. Separation is more difficult, and I for one will stick with Methanol. I haven't tried isopropyl yet, after trying Ethanol I decided to stick with what works for me.
