I have made biodiesel for many years and have had no problems. However, I use a fractional distillation process that also works on used motor oil. Using transesterfication is a bad way to make biodiesel in my opinion. My dad has run his diesel Mercedes on waste vegetable oil for many years, and my own pickup truck runs on biodiesel and waste vegetable oil at the current time. My experience has been that everyone else I have known who has made alternative fuels has given up. Even myself, I purchased biodiesel from a supplier and it caused my dozer to lose power and die. Further analysis showed the fuel was not correctly washed. Classic diesels without electronics should all run on vegetable oil as Rudolpf intended.
