Base for Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) as its called here in Oz (yanks call it Lye) should be 5 grams plus titration for each litre of oil you are going to use.

What did you titrate the oil to be before you made the batch? You did titrate?

Go upto the main forum into making biodiesel and more people will help than just me!
