CLEARANCE ITEM. PREVIOUS RETAIL PRICE WAS $29.95 AVAILABLE ONLY WHILE SUPPLIES LAST!

Using vegetable oils as a fuel for home heating and transportation has been around for more than a hundred years. Rudolf Diesel's original engine was operated on plant oils because of the lack of fossil fuels. Later, plant and animal oils were converted into a petrodiesel-compatible fuel known as biodiesel; a clean, low-carbon fuel.

In the early 1980s, home brewers discovered they could transform waste restaurant fryer oils into crude biodiesel and use it in automobiles at 100% concentrations at one quarter the cost of petrodiesel. Yet automotive and engine manufacturers insist that late-model vehicles may be damaged when run on high concentrations of biodiesel and may not honor engine warranties where biodiesel fuel has been used.

This 556-page book aims to separate fact from fiction on the economic production of quality biodiesel. It includes a list of suppliers, descriptions of detailed processes, a guide to numerous reference materials and lists the equipment required to produce biodiesel that meets North American standards.
