I am looking at buying a biodiesel processor, specifically the FuelMeister unit, and was wondering if anyone here has any experience with making your own diesel. I have found that the big disadvantage, besides the labor of making it, is that biodiesel will gel in the cold. Are there any other distinct disadantages? Are these FuelMeister units the best and easy to use? Thanks in advance for any input

Hopefully someone with biodiesel making will reply, but I have read here to not waste your money on the FuelmeisterII. Just do some reading in this forum, lots of info for us. Most biodiesel makers are using home made reactors from what I've read. Gene :mafia

I have been doing a lot of research on this as well. I have found that most of the people that have bought the fuelmeister have been very disapointed with it's quality. Lots of leaks etc right from the begining. Most people are that seem to be having good success and are very happy are using the appleseed style processor.
If you want really easy to use and can afford it look into the AGR Biopro190. It is automated so you don't have to spend as much time at the machine and figuring out how much of each chem to use.....but you pay for the convenience.

We are making our own processor. If you buy one already made you will be a bit ahead of the curve in that it is all assembled on delivery.
Although you may disassemble and re-assemble to make it right. :damnit

I had a test batch of clean bio that did not gel at about 30*F.
