I was kind of wondering the same thing. My buddy and I checked into the Fuel Meister set up and it seems legit. $3000 for the tank and everything. You can make 40 gals in 12 hrs. They claim it costs only 70 cts for supplies(50 for methanol and 20 for lie) per gal if you get your oil for free. Even if you had to buy it it is still going to be cheeper. Plus you can run it in your furnace and save big bucks there also. I just wonder how much you would have to cut it in winter so it doesn't gel.

There is also a company called Utah Biodiesel at www.UtahBio.com with similar stuff.

Don't buy a fuelmeister!!!!!!!!!!

Do some research on the biodiesel forums:
http://biodiesel.infopop.cc and www.biodieselnow.com

The machine is a piece of crap. I get irate ex-Fuelmeister owners coming to my classes all the time trying to figure out how to fix the really awful process the machine comes with.

Good look getting waste cooking oil for free! Build your own kit. I scored a 500 gallon cone bottom tank for $200. I think my whole processor set up cost $500 for everything and I can do 500 gallons at a time.

Listen to that! build you a Appleseed processor! It is easy and cheap to do so. Then get about 4 55 gallon drums. strain the oil, process it, wash it, dry it, store it, use it!
