    looking for a Brisbane BD supply

    Hello, just putting it out there that I'm interested in acquiring some biodiesel to either blend or completely run my HiLux on. Preferably by someone who has a fair bit of experience. I'm based in central Brisbane and am happy to pay of course.

    Kind regards,
    bd_user

    bd_user,
    Welcome to the forum. It is unusual for biodiesel makers to sell biodiesel as this makes the hobby into a business. Then you get more visible and the Excise people may wish to take a slice of the profits, then the ATO want their cut.

    Is there a reason that you are not intending to make your own biodiesel?
    Plenty of information here if you can spare the time to do some research on the processes.
    Members are happy to give advice and local members may even mentor you during the learning process.

    Get greasy,
    Tony

    Bd_user,

    there was once a thriving BD meetup here in Brissy, but I guess we all got sick of saying the same things to the same faces, as newbies were quite reluctant to turn up. These people including myself are still making and using BD on a daily basis. I am happy to show you a thing or two about the process and help you start on the way, as I am sure others are too.

    PM me if you are serious and want to start. its not hard and you dont need a lot of space, just a space you are willing to get dirty.....
    Regards,

    Cade.
