    Reprocessing a batch

    I have a batch that failed the 3/27 test.

    It's a pain in the proverbial and a waste of materials, but it should simply be a matter of reprocessing. I had washed about half of it and used some, so...

    Black box ethanol conversion

    I'm selling my EF Falcon and so I've taken the ethanol conversion box off to sell seperately. I ran it extensively on E85 and performance was beyond excellent - the car went like stink.

    It is a...

    Looking for a new place in Lismore

    We couldn't stand the cold any more in Gunning so we shifted it up to Lismore.

    Now I'm looking for a new workspace for my biodiesel business. FYI, it's a registered company that produces lab...

    Re: Will Veg Fuels get a new lease of life?

    I think it will simply because we need to do it.

    Generally the way it works is that there is a first wave that generates hype, controversy and general weirdness, but then dies.

    Then, because...
  6. Re: what are the licences needed to make your own ethanol for your car in WA?

    The process is more tedious than difficult. Start by having a look at the ATO web site, they have all of the info and forms to do it.

    You will also need to form your own company, not difficult or...

    White Smoke

    It gets very cold 'round these parts, and my truck pumps out clouds of white smoke when it starts in the morning and there are high levels of BD in the tank.

    As far as I know, it's simply because...
  8. Re: what are the licences needed to make your own ethanol for your car in WA?

    It is basically the same process as is involved in registering as a biodiesel manufacturer.

    Not surprisingly, the ATO wants its cut, and it wants decent book keeping to make sure you're not...

    Re: Flex Fuel kit

    I have one on my EF Falcon that I am finished with. I imagine it uses the same injector connection. If you want it, make an offer, or I'll find out what it's worth and come up with a price for you.
  10. Re: anyone running a recent falcon on ethanol blends

    Yo, damage. Had any luck converting your car to ethanol?

    I ran my EF Falcon for a year on E85 with pretty good results. It ran indecently well, considering the engine wasn't modified in any way.

    Amberlite Anyone?

    Dear learned family,

    It comes to pass that I am seriously sick of washing with water and now wish to experience the pleasures of ion exchange resin.

    Re: Virgin Oils: gummed or de-gummed.

    The people who do it seem to be divided on whether it should be degummed before processing. Hot or cold pressing seems to be a complicating factor as well.

    As I understand it, you are trying to...

    Warnquist test failure!

    Dear fellow oil molesters, I have a sticky problem for the chemists amongst you.

    I sent a batch off to be tested and all was well until the lab ran the ester percentage. Now the Oz standards want...

    Re: Processor pipework misalignemnt,

    I built a similar system recently, (though my pump wasn't quite so rip snorting), and wondered about the effects of heat on the pipework. I figured that if I ever had trouble with thermal flexing I'd...

    Re: Whats this new method for production?????

    If it's patented, you should be able to find the patent. The patent MUST contain all the relevant details of the process.

    Also, there is a very good chance that the patent only applies in the...

    The press is a generic type made by many, many different companies in China - this one came from Hunan Co.
