Biodiesel batch #100

Tonight, I pulled batch #100 from my biodiesel reactor and started washing the fresh fuel. Back in Aug. 2006 I brewed my first batch and I’ve been cooking fuel ever since. I collected almost 5,000 gallons (20.000 liters) of used fryer oil from local restaurants and processed it with 1,000 Gallons of Methanol and about 200 kilos of Potassium Hydroxide to make an estimated 4,600 Gallons of fuel for my cars and my truck. That’s almost 50,000 Kilos (or more than 100,000 pounds) of CO2 that was NOT added to the atmosphere.
