i was amazed that in 1960's they sold oil at $3 a barrel to US.. today it had climed $66
UPDATE: Today oil reached $70.80, a record high after hurricane Katrina threatened to disrupt oil supply.
and i yet again, fill up my tank this afternoon, with FREE filtered Waste Vegatable Oil.....u rich guys with the new cars need to see about using some pocket change and buy a w123, and do the full conversion, if u wanna always complain about the prices of oil! [;)][:D]

I'm looking at a W210 with 32K miles.

Found this resource you might find interesting, although I would love to pick old300D's brain if/when I jump.

I would be careful about using Journey to Forever as a resource. Some of their processors and most of their production "methods/receipes" are not quite right. A better resource is Veggie Avenger and Collaborative Biodiesel.

As far as what's involved in making biodiesel from used fryer oil, this is how I do it. Pour oil from fryer into a drum through a screen and let it settle. Pump 25 gallons of oil into the processor, I use an old 40 gallon hot water heater. Titrate oil to determine how much lye will be needed to process. There is a circulation pump plumbed into the processor, I turn this on and heat the oil to 130F, then turn off the heat. In a 5 gallon carboy full of methanol I add enough lye to neutralize the free fatty acid content of the used oil (new oil has no FFA). This solution is then pumped into the hot oil and circulated for 90 minutes, or until the oil temperature begins to drop. Then the pump is turned off to let the mixture settle. The glycerine drops out of solution and is drained off the bottom. The remainder is biodiesel with some residual methanol and soap -- in an older Benz it can used as is, but most people will wash the soap out and dry the fuel.
