There are plenty of websites that have recipes for free so why would anyone want to pay $99. Here is is one of the sites.

Garry, you missed the point. It says its not Biodiesel. and you can make it for FREE.. As apposed to making Biodiesel at a lesser cost. Michael

Michael - my apologies - guess I had my blinkers on when reading your post - I am supposely well educated - but I guess it didn't teach me how not to jump to conclusions - I do the same when trying to programme VCRs

Garry

I'm not convinced but to make it easier for others to make up their own mind here is a link...

click here

Maybe if your in melb we could put together a syndicate. But we're not making it at my joint, I'm in enough trouble with the body corporate as it is. I don't need the roof blowing off my flat.

Just on this...

It is make-able because they do make it. It is just a matter of wether WE can make it at a signicantly lower cost without risk than what you can get it for now.

C'mon let's get 5 blokes together. $20.00 each. Will be good for a story in a few years at least.

I'm in.

"Free Diesel"

Yeh ! $99.00 for the plans.. Most probably cost $ thousands in parts to make the still.

Hmmm.... unless you can make diesel out of thin air, can't see how it would be free. You will still have to buy crude oil to fractionate and refine into diesel, which at todays price is still 50c/litre - that's if you're an oil company buying it on the open market. Then transport on top of that to get it to your house

The next problem is all the other stuff that comes out of the crude oil - diesel will probably make up less than half of the crude oil, depending on whether you buy light sweet, heavy sour, etc.

I think I'll just keep buying from the bowser.

Remember ages ago when people advertised in the local papers, send $2 to XYZ address and we'll send you some information guaranteed to help you save money???

Then you received a letter from them saying "you'll never save any money if you send money to every joker that advertises in the paper..."

You still have to pay Excise and GST to Johnny Howard even when you make your own fuel, be it biodiesel or any variant.

If you don't pay, and you get caught, you are potentially liable for BIG penalties, because you get lumped in with excise dodgers who are typically muntimillion dollar affairs.

Put the $99 towards the cost at the servo and remove another reason to look over your shoulder....

Fellow here on Bribie Island just runs his diesels on straight vegetable oil, at a rate of 5 litres of diesel to 40 litres of Vegetable oil. Swears that the car needs no further tuning. I asked him about the price of Vegetable oil and he says that he has made a filter out of 2 Toilet rolls and uses Used vegetable oil that he buys from fish and chip shops. Works out at about 9 cents a litre.
Myseld, well Im not a believer so I will stick to the bowser until someone else does the trying...
Dont know if it works or not, just posting this out of interest..

There is a company in the UK running un proccessed vegitble oil in diesels, they make a kit that comes with filters and fuel line/injector pre heaters (for the cold weather, which your mate probally doesn't need to worry about). So it sounds feasable. Biodiesel is probally a better alternative as it would be more efficiant, better for the motor and burn cleaner (better for the environment).

This bloke on Bribie says that he only puts in 5 ltrs of diesel to 40 litres of Veg oil to make the car start better. Otherwise the car runs very good on straight veg oil. He insists that the car actually runs as well if not better on the veg oil. He even sold the wifes car and brought her a diesel.
Would be nice if it did no damage in the long run, and possible it dosn't..

regards
