Thinking that you can use bio-diesel as a natural, biodegradable fuel, that leaves little impact on the environment, that can be made from recycled waste oil and even made in your own garage probably seems a little too Hollywood for you. I don't blame you. I thought so too when I first started looking into this method. The ugly truth is, most alternative fuels leave much to be desired. There is however, a viable alternative. I'm convinced biodiesel could be the future of alternative fuels.

Why? Keep reading...

There are many, many reasons for this. No other fuel has so many natural, built-in advantages. For example...

  • It burns much cleaner than fossil fuels,
  • Is made from renewable resources,
  • You can actually be Making Biodiesel in your kitchen
  • It contains no petroleum and as a result it is environmentally friendly.
  • It is made using vegetable oil, alcohol, and lye, all of which are easily renewable resources, so when you power your car organically, you are using a fuel that only uses renewable resources.
  • It is recognized by the US Government and the EPA as fuel
  • It is covered by most vehicle manufacturers warranties
  • It requires no modification of your engine
  • It doesn't require that the nation reorganize it's entire energy infrastructure.
  • It doesn't rely on unstable and/or unfriendly governments.

And many, many more. This is just the tip of the ice berg.

For many years, various alternative fuels simply weren't viable. Because of this they never became mainstream. Today with oil prices prices soaring, the Oil Companies posting record profits while the rest of us are beaten down by high energy costs, it is growing in popularity. The Vegetable oil based fuels of yesterday required specially modified engines in order to be of any use and the average person usually had no interest in modifying their vehicles. Why should they? Gas was cheap, the car manufacturers would also void your warranty's. Not so with biodiesel. Sure you might need to buy a biodiesel Cars So what? Think of the headaches, not to mention the money you will save.

Biodiesel can be used in place of the regular petroleum in the car you drive everyday. No alterations or modifications are needed. That means that it can also be used in every machine that requires fossil fuels, from generators, to farm equipment, to the family car, to Biodiesel Home Heating Can you honestly tell me you wouldn't want to get rid of that $500 bill every month? Considering that this fuel costs about seventy cents a gallon to produce it is a realistic alternative to fossil fuels that is starting to catch on.

Now it is available for purchase in selected cities as well.

It can be bought directly from the manufacture or distributor and if you search around, you might even find a few gas stations that allow you to pump it into your car. Biodiesel pumping stations are starting to crop up at scattered locations throughout the country. If you aren't with in the proximity of a station that sells biofuels, you can even Make it in your kitchen or you can buy a Biodiesel Kits fairly cheaply. If you're handy around the house and have some tools, you can even build your own Biodiesel Processors are many home built "stills" on the pages of this web site.

The Biodiesel Production process for making bio-diesel at home isn't much harder than concocting a high school science experiment. The ingredients are easy to find at almost any hardware store and even the equipment is basic. By mixing lye together with antifreeze, sodium methoxide is formed. When you mix sodium methoxide with vegetable oil it transforms itself into two useful substances, glycerin and biodiesel. Glycerin is used in making soap and if you ever whip up a batch of bio-diesel, you can use the resulting glycerin byproduct to make your own biodiesel soap Bet you can't do that with ordinary diesel!

Bio-diesel is an amazing discovery that will revolutionize the way we view fuel. Rudolf Diesel was at least 100 years ahead of his time. It is also environmentally friendly, it is just as efficient as the petroleum diesel we now burn, but much less expensive. Because you can make it yourself using commonly found ingredients, using bio-diesel means that you will never be dependant on oil companies again.
