Well biodiesel spiked my interested quite awhile ago, and with recent spikes in diesle prices..and my DEEP want for a diesel truck i have began to do some heavy research into this and got some books.

Some thing i would like to ask to those of you, with processors, where do you keep them?

Is this some thing i can safely build in a bay of a 3 car garage attached to my house? or should i build a dovoted shed for it in my back yard.

I ask this, because this is a defning factor as to whether i will be pulling this off. In less then three weeks i will be moving in with my old man while i attend school, and i would really like to try this out, speicaly since he drives a diesel as well and doesn't like prices... the only option would be the garage.

Any advice would be greatly appreactied

Thanks folks

Best check with your insurance agent brfore you spend much on an installation to be sure you are not violating some hazard or fire clause. Then, I would pour a slab and park a 12 x 20 or so on it and make some fuel.

LOL, I would just tear your house down and build a station specifically for making fuel!

The shed is a better place for it. If anything should happen to go wrong, it's much less of a problem in the shed. Also - it's nice when you can vent the fumes somewhere other than where you sleep.

I hope your old man doesn't mind the mess. We try very hard to run a clean operation, but there's still grease running everywhere.
