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.

BAD IDEA!!!!!!! Buy a processor, as I have done what you are talking about with my truck and burned up an IP with water in the oil. If you do decide to do this, then get a good fuel water seperator, and be sure you can dry all the water out of the oil.

I would advise against what you are thinking of doing unless you can get 100% of water out of the oil.

The WVO is loaded with fat from the food that is cooked in it take it from Tonylaugh , mixing is a BAD IDEA!!! The fat develops into a thin coating that will settle in every place possible in your fuel system. You do what ever you want but one lift pump was enough to tell me the truth about mixing .

No prob Tony, its the least I can do considering you were the one that got me to try that crap ! That stuff will glaze everything, its like the worst case of varnish in a gasser that you could imagine and I was only runnin 30% mix with dino and it went through double filtration before it hit the tank. that stuff is a joke unless you use a processor.

Hey CP, maybe you should check this out and see if there are any sites near you, that way you can clean out that dirty tank.
