They Make Biodiesel Using Vegetable Oil
We started making our own biodiesel using used vegetable oil that we collected from local restaurants and taverns as a way to reduce our fuel expense. We're running 100 percent biodiesel in our 1993 Dodge 3/4-ton pickup and haven't noticed any loss of power or fuel efficiency.
  We're so pleased with the performance and ease of making our own biodiesel, that we decided to manufacture a biodiesel processor. We feel it's the best inexpensive processor made. It has a 40-gal. capacity and sells for $725 plus S&H, which includes the mixer and heater, and comes completely assembled and insulated. We have bulk lye and methanol available. We also offer transfer pumps with "Viton" seals (made for biodiesel), scales and 5-micron filters, or any other equipment needed to make biodiesel. We have complete knowledge of the biodiesel process.
  We're making biodiesel for about 75 cents per gallon. We hold demonstrations every week and can teach you to make your own for a $10 fee. You don't need a background in chemistry to make biodiesel. (Parma Fabrication LLC, P.O. Box 155, Parma, Mich. 49269 ph 517 531-4651)
