Diesel Fuel - make your own!

Make your own bio diesel at home using this easy to read guide. Using readily available used vegetable oil from the cooking industry, this book details how to convert this waste product into a quality diesel fuel suited to a range of diesel engines.

The Ultimate Emergency Fuel

Home made biodiesel is the ultimate "survival" fuel. While this book details making biodiesel from readily available used vegetable oil, it is perfectly feasible to make this fuel from home grown oil seed crops. All that is needed for home made vegetable oil is a heavy duty oil press.

Not Suitable for all Diesel Engines

Biodiesel is not suited to some common rail diesel engines. While biodiesel is suited to older style mechanical diesel injection, the use of this fuel in modern turbo charged common rail diesel engines is not recommended unless biodiesel is a specified fuel by the engine manufacturer. Some manufacturers also allow for a mix of biodiesel and normal diesel fuel.
