Bio-Diesel makes a great additive as well.

Like I keep telling everyone on the internet... I would love to use BIO Diesel but what if it not locally available in my part of the woods in Idaho???

The local shops and stores only carry PS and MMO which both have failed the HFRR testing... So that leaves me what as a fuel lubricant???

Not everyone lives in a Big City and got BioDiesel and access to popular name brand additives that passed the HFRR testing specs...:

Just venting... It gets rather upseting at times!

That's great... But I live in a town of 300 people there isn't a whole lot of deep fryers here in the tiny town of Riggins, ID... I might be able to havest 1 gallon of WVO a week...

So make it from what then??? :shrug:

Once again living in the small towns you don't have access to large amounts of anything...

Could you make it from Tree sap? Or am I thinking Ethanol that needs the sugars?

You live in a town of 300, I live between a town of 160 and a town of 25. We (the 160 town) have 1 post office, one general store, 2 gas stations (one is a cardlock) and 2 grain elevators. The town of 25 is a post office and 2 grain elevators.

Yeap... I think you need corn, sugar, and yeast to make ethanol... There is a book is New Meadows, ID library on how to do it...

Pollock, ID is about 5 miles from me... It just a Post Office as well...
So once again I'll stick to 2 cycle oil for my fuel lubricant...:

oh, sorry, didnt' really think about it, and to make ethyl esthers you would need 99.999 something percent pure ethanol, and as much as we try we cannot make anything that pure, and methanol is just too difficult to make
