Bio Diesel

Just curious, , ,

What exactly is 'bio diesel'?
I filled up this last weekend & one station has bio deez at ($4.99 gal), anywhere from 20 to 60 a gallon cheaper than stations selling regular deez.

I filled up with it, so far so good, , , ,

Anyone have any issues with this stuff?

Around here it is molasses. Or slow as molasses. This section is very quiet. Wiki has a good read.

Is your rig still running now that you took the leap?

I'd be interested in the blending of used oils with fryer grease and how that works out.

Prolly no one does that kind of stuff anymore because they are too busy cleaning their tanks, lines and filters

I have had NO problems with the bio I use in my MB and my 6.2 diesel Blazer.

Only the first time I fueled up with the bio.

I know this forum doesn't get much attention. But I was looking into bio diesel production for personal use. The traditional method used wvo, with Potassium or sodium hydroxide and methanol. With a decently big setup. I have read about a new method using Catalysts such as: Enzymes or Organometallics. Found at: https://biodieselmagazine.com/articles/the-ethyl-biodiesel-alternative-500

I was wondering if anyone is successfully using these at home to make biodiesel, or knew anything about them, thanks in advance for any response.
