    Re: Thomastown Biodisel

    I'm reasonably sure it's not operating. Hasn't done so for years, since they had their big accident. You can buy good quality cooking oil from them, though (rice bran oil).

    Re: Thomastown Biodisel

    Anyone know what the problem is at Thomastown? I haven't been able to get fuel there for a couple of months or more. :(

    Will they open up again?

    Cheers! :D

    Sorry mate, the club hasn't operated for years. But a few of the past members are still active on this forum and further afield.

    Re: Source of Oil in Clifton Hill

    Chris, are the waste oil collectors you refer to using it for biodiesel? If not, what do they do with the waste oil to make it worth 20c per litre to them?

    Thanks.

    Cheers.
