First batch in the new biodiesel processor. Leftover virgin vegetable oil (not waste fryer oil) for the first trial batch. Straight forward recipe, about 21% methanol (methyl hydrate) and 7.5 grams of KOH per liter.
Glycerol separation will be shown in the next video.

Making Biodiesel - Titration & Acid Neutralization
From titration to finished fuel as well as sulfuric acid neutralization
(needs more acid next time). I run you through the steps one by one. Until
I discover anything else noteworthy for the biodiesel process this will be
my last biodiesel video. Enjoy.
Making Biodiesel at Home
A walkthrough of the steps for making biodiesel at home, and driving your
car for 65-75 cents/gallon.
June 2008 update from the guy who makes this in the video - "methanol is
$3.95 a gallon now, pushing my per gallon price to around $1 +/- .05
depending on yield and lye."

EZ WVO filter. Simple, cost effective, no mess, no fuss!
The KissWvo filter is true simplicity, it has no moving parts. It is the
only BioFuel filter made of a Stainless Steel filter element that can be
cleaned repeatedly in less than a minute.
It is not dependent on power, is devoid of pumps, plumbing, gauges, and
hoses. The filter is instantly accessible for cleaning, and there is
nothing to throw away-ever! It is portable, sets up anywhere, and stores in
a closet. The filter is made of rust-proof
materials, is nearly indestructible, and is dishwasher safe.
Hope you enjoy this video!
1998 Jetta TDI biodiesel
A VW Jetta TDI with a grease car conversion. Two fuel tanks. The Engine
coolant lines take a detour and run though the biodiesel tank to warm the
fuel up on cold days. David says when the engine temperature gauge moves
out of the "cold" rage, he switches to the grease.
I spent a bit over a week making this 6 gallon batch of biodiesel. It's
made from vegetable oil left over from deep frying our turkey every
Thanksgiving for a couple years. This is my first real batch, if you can
call a batch this small a real batch. My first two batches were only 1/2
gallon test batches.
Filtering Fryer Oil
Just a simple vid of my simple cheap fuel filter. The car has a filter to
its required specs, this just takes the french fry bits out, that can cause
problems with the tank pick up tube and stuff. Even still, be prepared for
road side filter changes if you haven't gone through the tedious task of
pushing this stuff through a 10 micron filter.
This vegtable oil was progressively mixed with less and less diesel fuel.
I now run it at 80% fryer oil and 20% diesel oil. The car puts up a bit of
protest starting, but less than it did starting in the winter. That gets
me 160 mpg on the diesel fuel I have to pay for.
Soon I will have the biodiesel reactor dialed back up, and I can run B20,
20% biodiesel, 80% fryer oil, and never stop at a gas station again.
