Biodiesel batch #40

Last weekend I made batch #40, which means that over the last 3 years I turned 2000 Gallons (8000 liters) of fryer oil into fuel for my cars, using my fuel production setup in the basement. Currently I collect oil from these restaurants in Durham: ElRodeo, Piazza Italia (at Brightleaf), Dain’s Place and the Down Under Pub. I share the oil with a friend, who makes fuel for his Ram truck. In an average month we probably collect 200 Gallons of good-quality used oil from all these places. That’s a great energy resource that won’t get trucked away to be turned into lipstick.
