    Re: Looking for Biodiesel People in Adelaide

    Hi Tony,

    I'd be keen to set something up - and will come to your sessions if possible.

    Your paper doesn't seem to display/print the images in it properly. Wrong links?

    Why not put it up as a PDF?

    Kind rgds
    Andrew.

    Re: Looking for Biodiesel People in Adelaide

    Hi Guys, I have been producing for about two years in Renmark and have run into a snag with getting methanol which I hope I have just overcome when I contacted Peter at Scotcher Racing Fuels in Wingfield SA. He will sell Methanol for $190 in 205 L drums and KOH for $65/ 25 Kg.
    He is a great guy to talk to as he considered going into commercial production himself at one point. He may be a good point of contact if you are starting up in Adelaide. He may be able to help with isopropyl, indicator etc as well.

    Hi, my name is Ian and I am looking for people in Adelaide to possibly help me with some info on making biodiesel or converting to run on vegie oil. Any help would be fantastic and meeting with someone to see how they operate would be great. Cheers, Ian.

    Hello shortman, robert, andrew, tony, jb, dillyman, siv, grapes and dagwil,
    did I leave anyone out?

    I hope to be a biodiesel person in adelaide. I put a new thread up just before to provide a brief description of myself.

    But I thought I'd come in here and say g'day.

    G'day Kieron,

    Would be happy to catch up when I have a free moment.

    I have a longish list of names of interested folks, but just have lacked the time to do it.

    Ciao for now
    Andrew.

    G'day Keiren,

    I know that I am still interested in setting up a still, and Andrew is as well. I have been very busy lately, so have put it off for now. I am hoping that I can get after it this summer. Are you interested in making a still? Have you been using the B100 from SAFF? What are you driving?

    Cheers,
    JB

    Just a heads up on SAFF at present ...

    their policy appears to be to price B100 at 10c under (versus 2c under as it used to be) their fossil fuel diesel price.

    One of their franchisees says that they had "a cheaper source of supply" which whilst plausible doesn't seem to marry with my knowledge of how they operate.

    Perhaps their SA plant is online now?

    Anyways, it is now on sale at Upper Sturt as well.

    Ciao for now

    G'day Andrew,

    I just filled up at Upper Sturt for $1.30/ litre. I did not know thye had gone to $.10 per litre difference; that is brilliant! Pity the powers that be won't wave the 50 cent tax (or part of it) on biodiesel, but what can you do? I'll take the $.10; almost makes up for the poor fuel economy I get on biodiesel.

    Cheers,

    Josh
