    Re: FFA good or bad?

    I do not test the Titration of oil I use in my car.
    I have tested the titration of oil I used for making biodiesel at 4g/L. This oil came from the same supplier as the oil I use in my car, so is...
  2. Re: Car veggie oil art / advertising

    John,
    Some people tend to hide the fact that their vehicle is veggie powered. Others get personalised number plates like mine "FATMOBILE" or a friend's "A2B 4FREE".
    The WARFA has a bumper sticker...
  3. Re: tmrw 14th free talk- Waste based biofuels in modern engines: Speaker from Germany

    How did the talk go? Alexander comes to Australia every year and WARFA host him overnight and get updates from him over lunch, or at a public event like what you had there.Turnout?
    What was the...
  4. Re: DIY swapping altitude compensator for boost compensator Bosch VE

    Cade,
    Atmospheric pressure is ~14psi, so 7psi boost can give you up to a 50% power increase (theoretically) with inter-cooling, etc
    So a 100Hp engine would become a 150Hp engine.
    Many other things...
  5. Re: Glycerol / glycerine / byproduct pre wash

    Easily done using a timer and mains contactor to suit the current rating of the element.
    Set the start time, set the stop time, turn on the power to the timer. Come back after the oil is heated up. ...
  6. Re: Making biodiesel while maximising PV usage

    Solar diverter is a good option. Again, the DC working voltage of the array will be a factor. My example was for a 6 panel system with a Vmp of 30V per panel, making 180VDC.
    Solar arrays of up to...

    With my diagram you don't need another DC breaker, although it would provide greater isolation from the Solar panels.
  9. Re: Glycerol / glycerine / byproduct pre wash

    Compressors are not cheap to run- it is the compressor that makes refrigerators so expensive to operate.[/QUOTE]

    I agree, it is much cheaper to run a small pump or stirrer than to run a...
  10. Re: Making biodiesel while maximising PV usage

    If you plan to use a contactor (relay) to switch the DC, then use multiple contacts in series as this significantly reduces arcing at the contacts. eg use a 4 pole changeover contactor with 2 poles...
  11. Re: Making biodiesel while maximising PV usage

    3DB,
    You could operate the heating element on DC direct from the solar panels. The downside of this is that you will need to have an electrician make the connections (you can run the cable though)....
  12. Re: DIY swapping altitude compensator for boost compensator Bosch VE

    Isn't an altitude compensator the same thing as a boost compensator?
    They do the same thing. Surely, at most, you may need to adjust the max fuel at full boost.
  13. Re: Converting a 'new' vehicle to use vegetable oil

    Turbos supply air - nothing to do with the fuel system.
    Therefore no problems with WVO and Turbocharged engines (due to the turbo at least)

    It was in a number of vehicles, including Toyotas. Best to check out posts for the past 2 months to find it.

  15. Re: Cleaning my dishwasher with KOH?

    Have you tried an empty wash using the your usual dishwasher detergent?
    This should remove all of the crud from the dishwasher. If not, that is your problem, change to a better dishwasher detergent.

    Re: Looking for gear to set up

    See if you can get hold of a 'Solar Edwards', solar hot water system tank. They are made of Stainless Steel and have an electric element in one end.
    I have one which I made into a biodiesel...

    Re: Injector pump return line

    Your test was about FLOW, not PRESSURE.

    The injector pump is not under any pressure from looping the return line!
    There may be a fuel lift pump (usually for inline IPs) or not, This does not...

    Tonight, I received this email from Alexander Noac.

    WARFA will be hosting a meeting with Alexander and the opportunity will exist for non WARFA members to participate.
  19. Re: using glycerine in bio gas digester

    Bueff,
    You would be better using the human wastes to feed the bio gas digester than using a composting toilet. This will provide the 'starter microbes' and provide some dilution for the biodiesel...

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    Mark,
    Questions:
    How does microbial sludge respond to caustic soda, compared to algal sludge?
    Doesn't algae need sunlight to form?
    Why?
    Regards,

    Why not use the modern elements or possibly get some nichrome wire to repair the old ones when the element breaks?

    Re: Problem with Pug

    It is rewarding when you discover something that needs fixing and fix it without expecting any immediate benefit and consequently a minor issue disappears.

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    It would be good to have an IP which is suspected of having some TS in it, opened and inspected (and take 'before' photos). Than run it with a high % Methanol/Biodiesel blend for a week before...

    Re: Bio Sludge in fuel tank

    I imagine that there may be some degradation of the fuel lines if the high concentration MeOH was in the system for a long time. I doubt that the impact using a low concentration would be...
