|| A PremierBiodiesel is an alternative to petroleum diesel. It is called biodiesel because it is made from mostly biodegradable materials and can be used as fuel in diesel engines. It can also be used in boilers or furnaces designed to use heating oils or in oil-fueled lighting equipment. It can be used neat (100% biodiesel), or it can be blended with petroleum diesel.

Biodiesel is a domestic, non-toxic, biodegradable fuel that can be made from used ... Biodiesel is made from used or new vegetable oils or animal fats .
||Biodiesel - Biodiesel is a clean burning fuel which runs in any unmodified diesel engine. This fuel is an environmentally-friendly alternative to the higher emission petroleum diesel used in large transport vehicles and some cars and trucks. In addition, biodiesel can be made from renewable resources such as vegetable oil or animal fat and even from used cooking oil, an abundant waste product. |
Biodiesel is currently being manufactured at an industrial scale by large companies but can also be made on a small scale with simple technology. We hope to be a clearinghouse for biodiesel information, especially the information, skills and technology necessary for making it on a small scale.
|Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO) - Diesel engines can also be run on unmodified vegetable oil, if the oil is heated or mixed with other fuels. Using waste vegetable oil this can be an amazingly inexpensive and ecological alternative fuel.
You can convert almost any diesel vehicles to run on SVO .
Making Biodiesel at HomeHere are some Biodiesel recipes we collected in 1997. People are still generally using the same recipes but we really recommend reading From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank and doing other web research.

Remember that the chemicals needed to make biodiesel can be toxic and dangerous. Please be careful and take all safety precautions. We are not responsible for any injuries or damage to any vehicles from using biodiesel. Good luck. Running a diesel vehicle on straight vegetable oil (SVO) While biodiesel is a great alternative fuel with lower emissions and the ease of use in an unmodified engine, the real economic and ecological savings come when running on Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO). Believe it or not, the original diesel engines were designed to run on peanut oil! Today's engines are designed with petro-diesel in mind and therefore require a fuel with similar physical properties. Vegetable oil will burn in a diesel engine but only if its viscosity (how thick a liquid is) can be brought down to a level similar to petro-diesel. To do this you can mix it with another fuel such as kerosene or petro-diesel, but you can also do it by heating it to about 160 įF. This option can allow you to run on pure vegetable oil, including waste vegetable oil. You can modify your car to have a heated fuel tank which allows us to run on vegetable oil during the summer and also allows us to run on biodiesel during the winter (which would otherwise be gelled). The vehicle is started on biodiesel and then the tank is heated with hot coolant from the engine. After a few miles the fuel is ready to go and then you can run on vegetable oil. For details of this conversion see our article on Biodiesel Winterization. This system is based on plans described in From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank.
