    I'm all for the Bio-Diesel concept....It would be the only way I would consider owning a diesel powered vehicle OR welder at these prices.

    One drawback though:

    Just think.....You pull onto a pipeline, and every machine is burning Bio-Diesel...... Buggars wouldn't get anything done - They'd all be watching the clock, waiting for lunch.

    I am still leary of the bio diesel. Local, and only refiner of bd here, recently had to buy several engines and paid the repair bills for several thousand trucks. Bad batch.

    Cool

    Years ago we ran all of our shop trucks on propane because it was cheap. And yes you still have to pay mileage tax, so keep some good books...Bob

    So, you think you have a good deal, getting used cooking oil from the Chinese restaurants... do you know what all of that MSG can do to an engine?

    this is the ultimate answer to the enrgy crisis of the 21st century....

    take and atom of ununhexium
    Symbol: Uuh
    Atomic number: 116
    Atomic weight: [ 292 ]

    And bombard it with protons. this creates anti matter. the enrgy created from this reaction could be harnessed to heat water to turn a generator..
    a reactor the size of a walnut could feed the energy requirements of a city the size of seattle....

    YEAH RIGHT.. but really. this technology is not far away. mark my words. Im not quite right in my spew but im close.

    so who here by show of hands thinks signwave has gone of the deep end? hehehehehe... think what you want. many other ideas were shot down along the way.. like the world was round instead of flat and the sun revolved around the earth...

    Yeah, and you're going to need a filter for the fish heads and bones that you will find in the oil.

    I can recall a Chinese restaurant that was down on the corner from our house when I was a kid in Chicago, They used to pour the used oil into the sewers. Heh heh.
