Are you ready to break free from big oil, become self-sufficient, and never visit a gas station again? Then you've come to the right spot!
Here you'll learn how you can make your own diesel-replacement fuel called Biodiesel for about a $1.50 a gallon that can be run in most diesel vehicles.
We'll walk you through the simple steps and information you'll need to know to get started making your own fuel and driving past the gas stations! We also provide links at the bottom of each section to additional information so you can learn as much or as little as you'd like about each topic discussed.
So, sit back, pull up a chair, grab some popcorn, and get ready to learn how to start living gas station free!
WHAT IS BIODIESEL?
Biodiesel is a replacement for diesel fuel that can be used in most diesel engines. It has properties that allow it to burn and perform similar to diesel fuel making it an ideal replacement to petroleum based diesel fuel.
Biodiesel can be made from plant oils such as soybean oil, canola oil, cottonseed oil, and others or from animal fats such as beef or chicken tallow or pork lard. It can also be made from used fryer oil that's discarded by restaurants as a waste product; which is what we'll be focusing on. So, yes, that really means you can make fuel out of what restaurants consider to be garbage! I tend to think of it as liquid gold...and soon you may think the same as well!
Because Biodiesel can be used as a direct replacement for diesel fuel in most diesel powered vehicles, this means
that you can make Biodiesel yourself at a fraction of the cost per gallon of what you would normally pay for diesel fuel!
In fact, in most cases people are producing their own Biodiesel for less than a $1.50 per gallon! Not bad eh?
WHY USE BIODIESEL?
We think there's several reasons to use this great renewable resource! Here's a few that really stand out & make a case for using Biodiesel!
It's Economical, Keeps Your Dollars Here, Reduces Dependence On Foreign Oil
HOW TO USE BIODIESEL
To use Biodiesel in a diesel engine, simply pour it into the fuel tank and use the engine as normal. Biodiesel can also be used in a blend with petro-diesel as well. You can even add it to diesel already in the fuel tank!

BUILD IT YOURSELF BIODIESEL PROCESSORS
Water Heater Biodiesel Processor Kits & Plans
While it's simple in it's design, it makes great Biodiesel and works extremely well. You can use 30, 40, 50, or even 80 gallon water heaters to build one with and can build it in a weekend!
We've built several of these water heater based Biodiesel processors
over the years and have always been impressed with not only their simplicity but their effectiveness at producing great Biodiesel!
55 Gallon Drum Biodiesel Processor Plans
It can be built in a couple weekends using nothing more than 55 gallon drums, steel pipes, basic plumbing, a pump, and some electrical wiring.
The plans are well laid out and extremely easy to follow! In just a matter of a few days or weekends, you can build an incredibly effective top-notch Biodiesel processor that will produce batch after successful batch of high-quality Biodiesel!
The plans include details on how to add on to the processor to increase the output capacity and even include detailed instructions for making Biodiesel using this well-designed processor!
500 Gallon Tank Biodiesel Processor Plans
The plans include detailed drawings for every component you'll need to build and give detailed instructions on how to operate the processor to get the most out of your vegetable oil!
This processor has been successfully built by individuals, farmers,
small business owners, and even commercial Biodiesel plants! It's simplicity of design makes it easy to operate and the Biodiesel
it produces is so good that it can even be certified with the EPA to be sold on the commercial Biodiesel market!
READY-BUILT AUTOMATED BIODIESEL PROCESSORS
The BioPro's will heat up your oil, mix in the chemicals, and react the oil into high quality Biodiesel! You just drain off the glycerin by product, start the wash cycle, and then return when it's finished. Then you simply pump the finished, ready to use Biodiesel into your vehicle with the handy fuel pump! These are truly like having your very own gas station! They're very easy to use, are extremely robust, and work extremely well!
Check out how simple the BioPro's are to use with the video below!
We personally make all of our Biodiesel in a BioPro 190 and love how easy it is to use! We've made literally thousands of gallons of Biodiesel in our BioPro and continue to make batch after batch! The BioPro's are available in 3 different sizes to meet your individual needs and can even be accessorized with equipment that can shorten the time it takes to make a batch! Check out all three below!
The BioPro 150 Automated Biodiesel Processor
It has a small footprint of 21" wide, 21" deep and stands just 57" high.
It's small, compact size means it'll take up very little room while still churning out batch after
batch of high-quality Biodiesel!
The BioPro 190 Automated Biodiesel Processor
The BioPro 190 requires a 120 volt outlet, a water in connection, and a drain connection. After hooking it
up, just pour in the oil & chemicals & watch the magic happen! Within a matter of hours you'll have
golden amber colored Biodiesel that's ready to use in your vehicle for a fraction of the price you'd
pay at the gas pump!
The BioPro 380 Automated Biodiesel Processor
We've used several BioPro 380's over the years and have been amazed at how well these machines can
pump out batch after high quality batch of Biodiesel! They're not even all that much bigger than a BioPro 190 either!
They stand 86" tall are 63" wide and 33" deep. The BioPro 380 does require both a 120 volt and a 240 volt electrical outlet
to run plus the same water in connection and drain pipe of a BioPro 190, but it definitely makes up for it
in the volume it can output and the full automation that it gives the user to make Biodiesel!
The SpringPro T76 Dry Wash Tower
The same company that make the BioPro automated biodiesel processors manufacturer one of these Biodiesel dry washing systems and they call it a SpringPro T76 Dry Wash Tower. Inside the first tower is a fiber-based media that absorbs much of the remaining contaminants from freshly made Biodiesel. Then, the Biodiesel is passed through the second column which is filled with polymer resin beads that final polish the fuel making it ready for use in vehicles.
One of the benefits of Dry Washing Biodiesel is that you can cleanse the fuel much faster! Instead
of the 24 hours that it takes to water wash Biodiesel in the BioPro's, it can wash 100 Gallons in a
BioPro 380 in 5 hours, 2.5 hours to wash 50 gallons from a BioPro 190,
and 2 hours to wash 40 gallons from a BioPro 150! Yep! That's fast!
ADDITIONAL BIODIESEL PRODUCTION EQUIPMENT
While each situation and setup is unique, we've created a great article that covers the basic things that
should be considered for every Biodiesel production area; big or small. We start from the beginning and
work our way through all the different steps you'll be doing when making Biodiesel and discuss the relevant
equipment you may want to obtain before starting to make Biodiesel.
BIODIESEL PRODUCTION COSTS & RETURN ON INVESTMENT
One of the great things about Biodiesel is that it can be made for such a small cost per gallon.
Here's a breakdown of the typical costs for a 50 gallon batch of Biodiesel.
