........ it will be because you have seen what some people ask for a couple of plastic drums and a pump and you can only imagine what something like this that sounds very decent would go for! :o

I readily admit I am in this for the cheap fuel aspect but I can't help but be impressed by people who spend small fortunes that will take them years, if ever, to recoup their investment on processors.
These people are really committed to saving the planet and putting their hard earned where their heart is.

Agreed David, it sounds well thought out and put together. I still want to know what it's worth as I am contemplating making my own biodiesel for the tractor - air cooled, direct injection. I'd probably blend with it too.

It's a cardinal sin of selling to not put a price on your product - makes people suspicious. If there are many options and add ons then "priced from ..." is OK.

Fingers, sounds like a good set up, and I'm interested. All I need is a price so I can do some cost recovery calculations. In other words, how long is it going to take before the savings pay for the unit. I could build one myself but a) it costs in parts and b) it costs in time. I place a high value on my time, so that may well tip the equation in favour of buying a ready made unit.

Cheers, Michael

What are these worth? Where can they be purchased from?

Very interested in a fully set up processing plant for Biodiesel production.
