Cloudy BIO

I have made a small 1 liter batch of bio and got good seperation (according to the 27/3 test). But after washing the diesel im still left with cloudy bio. Can someone give me a way to dry a small 1 liter batch or do you think its something else other than water thats making it cloudy?

Sorry, can't help ya. I dry wash with Magnesol, and most others on this forum do also. Cloudy bio after waterwashing is a sure sign of water.

First of all, at what temperature did you perform the 3/27? And secondly, was your final wash water relatively clear?

Also how many washes did you do? I believe you need several until you get clear water (which is one of the reasons I got excited when I was shown a better way...)

Let it sit for a few days in an open container to let suspended water evaporate out and it will turn crystal clear.
