Every person, who has ever told me making biodiesel or collecting waste vegetable oil was illegal, has had a financial/political interest in minimizing alternative fuel usage, or they wanted to keep it all for themselves. Been in the game 11 years...

My local high school makes biodiesel in a shed in the school parking lot, so I don't think it's against federal law. You know, since the project had to be allowed by the principal, superintendent, etc. The project has been featured on the news and in the newspaper.

PLUS I know companies that run their entire fleet on biodiesel that they create. It's not illegal. that's just nonsense.

According to the local fire code in my area you canít store more than 5 galllons with out a permit.

FC105.6 of the 2014 Fire Code (shown below) includes an alphabetical list of all required Fire Department permits.

rangernut brought up the making of ethanol being illegal. I pointed out that ethanol isn't used, it's methanol. I then pointed out that distilling is illegal, actually it's regulated and legal with permits, only as it relates to the making of alcohol. I know that there's no distillation involved in the making of bio.

As for kirkharrod's statement; maybe the specific people who told him it's illegal were lying, but there are several laws/regulations regarding it.
