How does this book/manual compare to similar titles and web based free information?
Biodiesel is not hard to make, but it is easy to make a mess of.

Wrecking your injector pump with a basic caustic shake and bake method as promoted by inexperienced advocates is an expensive lesson to learn.

Grown Fuel has compiled 15 years of experience and knowledge building and designing commercial biodiesel plants into this book to assist you in manufacturing quality biodiesel to ensure you meet biodiesel specifications so that you do not wreck your engine.

The book was written to promote quality biodiesel manufacture to small-scale makers as opposed to the common industry personnel belief that only large organisations or large industry producers.

Biodiesel in Practice includes basic testing and comprehensive lab results that prove the biodiesel recipe. No other book / manual or web site offers you that level of confidence.Biodiesel in Practice is not suited to making quick, poor quality fuel that is guaranteed to shorten your engine’s life.

The biodiesel recipe and equipment described is suitable for making between 50 and 500 litres of biodiesel per day for AU$0.30 cents per litre plus your oil cost. Our specialised knowledge and inexpensive establishment costs means it’s easier and more affordable than you realise to create your own biodiesel fuel.
