If this is a repeat on this board my appologies. This product appeared on the "Trucks" TV program this past weekend. And I'll bet it will sell a bunch of them now. Check this site out.

The host did a good job to convince me that Bio-Diesel fuel is the way of the future.

It would be great if instead of paying farmers not to grow certain crops, the government paid the farmers something to grow high oil producing crops for bio diesel.

Lynnvt, that would make sense to do that therefor they will never do it.

Do you think it would be worth it though for farmers who probably use diesel more than most? For RVers I don't see how it would pay. The first tank full for you summer vacation would be cheap. Fillups after will cost you.

That's a bummer. Even on small scale? Like for personal use?

If any of you have to opportunity to actually attend a demonstration of one of the bio-fuel distillers, by all means attend it. It is a very interesting thing. I do not think the making bio-fuel for RV's is feasible unless you run large fuel tanks and travel only a short distance from home. But that is my opinion. The units are far to tall to fit into an RV basement (wouldn't fit into the 36+" high basement of our Eagle bus). So that involves a cargo trailer to haul the thing around. And then there is the jet fuel used as a catylist. David and I sat down and worked out that discounting our time and labour as well as the initial investment of the distiller (well, that's what they look like), the cost of the resulting fuel is very close to the pump price not the $0.75/gl they were claiming. You might look into a setup that uses Straight Vegetable Oil (SVO) usually clean unused rapeseed/canola oil (best "fuel" oil). We have run into problems locating a good quality waste oil in our location (folks don't want to mess with it here... employees are too stupid or lazy to deal with seperating the waste oil from other greases))

Make your own out of WVO or Waste Vegetable Oil. Only works for diesels. Lots of info out there. I first learned about it on http://www.thedieselstop.com there are a couple of forums there about bio and WVO.
