EUREKA! VegOil Based Fuel Produced In High School Lab
Our first batch of vegetable oil-based fuel is almost ready for the test grounds - my 1984 Mercedes Benz 300 DT diesel. The process was so simple yet so complex. Its all about tranesterification. Yes, drop that term at a party. It's as simple as taking large hydrocarbon molecules (veg oil) and creating esters from them. Once that is completed, the end product (veg oil based fuel) will burn amazingly clean and efficient.. Efficient enough to run a 1984 Benz. Stay tuned for updates. This batch just needs a little bath and its ready for the Benzo. Good job Mr. Whitcomb and Mitch DeRubis.
