  1. Re: Anywhere to purchase biodiesel between Brisbane and Melbourne?

    I used to buy methanol from "Laker Paint" in Darra but that would have been 8 or 10 years ago.
    I just looked on gumtree and someone in Darra was advertising methanol for sale a year ago....

    Ah yes,
    I remember "Neutral" had one of these.
    It uses a Comprex Pressure wave supercharger which is quite unusual.
    Instead of using a mechanical pump to compress the air it uses the exhaust gas...

    Re: Using the tote?

    Hi Pavetim,
    Welcome to the forum.

    Another concern I have is that considering there are corners in a tote, is to insure thorough mixing.

    Hi Cade,

    Yes, there is not a huge increase in yield
    This is what Neutral posted about the testing he performed with it.
    Around a 3% increase with WVO containing about 5% FFA.

    Re: My first wash. AARGGHH

    Hi Cade,
    Yes, the 5% pre-wash is certainly counter intuitive, but it does work- I have done it before when I was water-washing my biodiesel.

    The amount of yield gain will depend on the titration...

    Re: Can you make bio with Frytol oil?

    Hi Jack,
    Welcome to the forum.

    Yes, you can make biodiesel from Frytol exactly like you make biodiesel from veg oil.
    As with any oil, the Frytol must remain liquid throughout the reaction.

    I think you have answered your own question.
    I would just let it sit and see if the emulsion breaks on it's own, then remove water and continue to heat. Otherwise you know vinegar...
