Here's one of the $300 kits that I speak of. http://www.b100supply.com/catalog/item/1905971/1330258.htm

They have the parts list too. Obviously one can do this oneself, but just about everyday we pay for convenience.

I've seen another for $400 (including shipping) that includes two scales and a titration kit, and material needed for a wash tank as well (all minus the tanks/drums of course.)

I suppose that's fair. Of course, you still need to get the hot water heater. - I haven't looked hard enough for one yet.

And old ones are free or very little $$. I paid $20, plus a $200 "kit" and a free 55 gallon drum. Voila, processor for less than $300. I've made 200 gallons to date, and it has paid for itself already using $3.00 per gallon diesel as a baseline.

That is an issue, at least for me. Gas ones are fairly easy to get, but I have no gas plumbed out to my garage. And every "stinky hippy" around here, Boulder CO., is looking for and snatching up any available beat up old electric heaters...

I gotta make some plumber friends.

I just built mine today I used the $200 "box of parts" kit from www.biodieselwarehouse.com. I just needed my own water heater and drums but all told well under $300 and not hard to assemble at all. Just a little more reading and ill make my first batch next week!!
