The Veggie Van Voyage
Tags: The Veggie Van Voyage

In 1997, a young college graduate from Louisiana named Josh Tickell set out on a cross-country road trip in a diesel Winnebago fueled by used frying oil from America’s fast food restaurants. His goal: to spread the word about an incredible alternative fuel made from vegetable oil called “biodiesel.” Ten years, two books, two films and millions of French Fries later, Tickell and his “Veggie Van” have started a revolution. - more

"Well, those damn city people have made alternative diesel so complicated that it's hard for simple country folk to understand. Really, it can be less complicated than a country still and easier than getting Becky Sue into the hay loft. The most important wrinkle is making it safe for your tractor, truck, or pickup. And that's what we aim to tell ya in simple country English. I ain't meaning to put down Yankees and I ain't one of them what thinks that damn and Yankee is one word (specially since I'm living where North meets South). But a true Yankee is just like a quickie, except a fella does it when he's alone. And a guy doin' that may be too distracted to give you the information straight. Hell, it ain't nothing but mixin up a few things, simpler than Granny's homemade possum pie. Why, one type is as easy as tossing some kerosene into used cooking oil and adding some do-dads that you probably got laying around the farm. And the Hillbilly method is cheaper, Y'all know we ain't got no choice but to make it that way. Our Hillbilly fuel will even run some furnaces and oil heaters. Yankees just complicate everything, but here's a sample of the kinds of simple questions that Y'all should be asking, especially concerning the safety of your diesel engine. "

Mike Pelly's biodiesel method

Mike Pelly lives in the US North West. "I live for renewable energy projects," he says. Mike's been making his own biodiesel fuel from waste cooking oil for the last five years, using it in several different cars. He finds it "far superior" to fossil-based diesel fuel.

Anybody can make biodiesel. It's easy, you can make it in your kitchen -- and it's BETTER than the petro-diesel fuel the big oil companies sell you.
Your diesel motor will run better and last longer on your home-made fuel, and it's much cleaner -- better for the environment and better for health. If you make it from used cooking oil it's not only cheap but you'll be recycling a troublesome waste product. Best of all is the GREAT feeling of freedom, independence and empowerment it will give you.
Here's how to do it -- everything you need to know.

This is a FOOLPROOF way to make biodiesel.
