Re: Activists need short (bio) diesel bus by Cullen
Post New Message I have friends in the Tucson Indymedia Collective. You can either make a mobile biodiesel processing unit which is really no more than a 55-gallon drum, with a agitator motor attached and a valve at the bottom to drain glycerine. You would need a decent space to make it(not in the back of a Circle K on the highway). John is correct in saying that you don't need to do any modifications to the engine for biodiesel, over-estimates the amount of space it would take to make it, and wrong about how much time it takes-less. An other alternative is to set up the bus to rum straight vedge oil from tallow bins. You will need two separate tanks: one which would start and stop the bus on petro or biodeisel and switch over to pure vedgetable oil once the oil has been heated to 160 farenheight. This oil gets heated by a relatively simple modification to your engine which runs your hot radiator coolent through your vedge oil tank. A thermo-solenoid switch can automatically switch it over to vedge fuel when the temperature has been reached. You still need to take time to filter the used frier oil on the road. Maybe just get a really big tank made on it between bio-d collectives, bio-d commercial stations, or friendly garages to make it. Get the book "From Fryer to Fuel Tank". Good luck.
