Run Your Diesel Vehicle on Biofuels has everything you need to make the switch from expensive, environment-damaging carbon fuel to cheap (and, in many cases, free), clean fuel for your vehicle. Practical and decidedly apolitical, this unique guide focuses on technical details, parts and instructions.

Inside, you'll find step-by-step instructions accompanied by helpful illustrations for such projects as building and properly using a homemade biodiesel reactor, which enables you to drive your car on vegetable oil purchased at a fraction of the price of gas (or even on free, secondhand oil obtained from restaurants). Run Your Diesel Vehicle on Biofuels also includes a list of international parts suppliers and various manufacturers' warranty statuses regarding vehicles converted to biodiesel.

Projects include:

  • Collecting waste oil.
  • Building a waste-oil processor.
  • Creating biodiesel fuel.
  • Converting your car to professional standards.
  • Constructing heat exchangers.
