Inside, you'll find step-by-step instructions accompanied by helpful illustrations for such projects as building and properly using a homemade biodiesel reactor, which enables you to drive you car on vegetable oil purchased at a fraction of the price of gas or even on second-hand oil obtained from restaurants free of charge. Run Your Diesel Vehicle on Biofuels also includes a list of international parts suppliers and various manufacturers' warranty statuses regarding vehicles converted to biodiesel.

Projects include:

Collecting waste oil Building a waste-oil processor Creating biodiesel fuel Converting your car to professional standards Constructing heat exchangers

Run Your Diesel Vehicle on Biofuels covers:
History and functions of the diesel engine Benefits of biofuel Where to obtain raw ingredients Theory of fuel conversion Existing conversion kits o Blends, emulsions, and thinners Processing and discarding waste oil Laws and regulations Green retail o Health and safety Limitations of environmental benefits
