With Gas Prices Reaching $4.00 per gallon, I’m thinking of switching 2/3 cars to Biodiesel. I figure I could put a biodiesel processor in my shed and basically save myself a whole bunch of cash. A 100 Gallon processor would be about $1500.00 (alot less if I build it myself). Cars, they’re cheap enough.. A Diesel Car (maybe a VW), and replace the Expedition with an F-350 or something completely ridiculous like that. (I like Big Trucks), but it would be burning B100 (100%), so the cost of the truck would be offset by the cost of fuel pretty quickly. These days, I drive *maybe* 20 miles a week.
Biodiesel would cost me approx. $1.50 a gallon to process, so fuel prices would be minimal. It makes sense, but the gelling issue is something I’d have to deal with for 2-3 months out of the year. (I guess I’d just run 50% petrol mix).
