Input on Mixing
Ok so I would really really like to make my own Bio-D, but given I don't have the facilities for it, I can't. The local Coop selling Bio-D is difficult to get a hold of, is moving, and is more expensive than Petro - for members. Non members it is like .30 cents more. So I can't do that for right now. I want to start using alternative fuel to do my part. I am going to start with blending with virgin veg oil from Sam's and then gradually switch over to WVO for the blend. With the plan of making Bio-D towards the end of this year from the WVO I will be collecting. So with that said...
I have a 100 gallon tank in my bed that I am planning on using for the mixing. I am thinking that if I turn the valve off dump everything in and drive around for a couple days it will get a pretty good mixing and be good to go. I'll open the valve and use it all and then repeat process next month.
First will this method of blending work?
Specifically blending in the fuel tank by driving around sloshing it.
Second what should I blend?
I am needing a specific recipe for a 100 gallon batch. I plan on using petro diesel, Veggie Oil, and whatever else you guys reccomend. I was thinking along the lines of a 30% Veggie Oil. But I mind of pulled that number from out of my arse. I don't want to run to high a percent of Veggie Oil, but I want to stop some of my money from going to the people in the Middle East and Texas.
Appreciate the knowledge and assistance.
