Bio Diesel Class 101

Jennifer Radtke, originally uploaded by Robbi Baba.

Jennifer Radtke, our wonderful teacher, has just made up a one liter test batch.
Meredith, Steve and I attended an all day workshop yesterday to learn how to 'homebrew' our own fuel. It seems entirely do-able.
Quite a few of our class mates were middle aged contractor type fellows, who all have big Ford 250 and 350 diesel trucks they use for work. They spend so much filling up these monsters that they are very enthusiastic about making fuel for 60 cents a gallon! Practical, funny and down to earth, they made a welcome addition to the class.
Next month we go back to build our own processor!
