A heavily illustrated guide that shows how to convert any car to run on vegetable oil or biodiesel.
Run Your Car on Biodiesel shows you how to run your automobiles on a carbon-neutral fuel, which, in many cases, can be obtained for free. The book explains the basics of converting vegetable oils to biodiesel, describes how to build and properly use a home-made biodiesel reactor, and demonstrates how to run a vehicle on waste vegetable oil available at no cost from many fast food outlets.
Filled with over 150 detailed illustrations, this cutting-edge resource presents money-saving projects on collecting waste oil, building a waste oil processor, making your own biodiesel fuel, converting your car professionally, making a heat exchanger, and more. The reference includes an international list of parts and index of suppliers, information about the warranty status of vehicles pending conversion to biodiesel, and links to manufacturers' statements regarding the use of the fuel.
Jon Starbuck has converted several vehicles to run on vegetable oil and has written web sites and taught courses on the subject of vegetable oil and biodiesel. He is currently pursuing a Masters in Renewable Energy Systems Technology at Loughborough University. He worked and taught at the Centre For Alternative Technology for five years.
