    Re: Legality of using veg oil as fuel

    If you are selling the fuel you are making then ATO would want their cut for sure.

    Re: IBCs and other drums available free

    IBCs and 44 gal drums are gone.
    I still have some cubees and 2 x 200 litre plastic drums.
    Not desperate to get rid of these as we could use them as water tanks.

  17. Re: Blending gasoline with vegetable oil to make diesel fuel

    More likely perhaps is the ULP may vapourise before reaching the IP where it is under vacuum. Then the integral lift pump may have trouble drawing the vapour.
