BioFuel your diesel car and truck today!

My truck smells like french fries. I use B100 BioDiesel in my 97 Dodge Ram Turbo Diesel, and it loves it, and folks are always telling me, your truck exhaust smells like french fries. And of course if I use Biodiesel made from used donut cooking oil, then my exhaust would smell like donuts.

When I go to buy Biodiesel in Berkeley, I go a tiny bit further and end up at Blue Sky Bio Fuels in Oakland who is the source of much of the Biodiesel sold in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Life is good.

The San Francisco Bay Area and Northern California has thousands of restaurants who end up with massive amounts of used fats, cooking oil, and grease (F.O.G.) from their fryers. In the past Restaurateurs paid to remove this FOG from their establishments, but now-a-days, there are many companies competing to collect this valuable commodity and pay the restaurateurs cold hard cash for the privilege.

Used cooking oil is a valuable resource for the BioFuels industry, where it is most often converted to BioDiesel through a chemical process called trans esterfication. Old cooking oil is filtered, dried to remove water, and then heated and combined with a catalyst, separated into glycerine, and BioDiesel, washed and dried, and then used in Diesel Vehicles for fuel. This is perhaps the best use of fats, oils, and grease, since the old cooking oil is removed from the food chain.

Other uses for used restaurant fryer oil is for animal fattening in feed lots just before slaughter. The animals are fed a potent mixer of rendered animals, and fats and corn for increased caloric intake. This feed is actually toxic to the animals if they are fed it for an extended period. Also, you have to wonder about the effects on animal fed food made from it’s own kind, and being fed something no longer considered fit for human consumption. I think used cooking oil is best used locally as biodiesel feed stock.

I have been burning BioDiesel in my 97 Dodge Ram for about a year and a half now. The truck loves the stuff, and I love it because I’m doing something to reduce pollution. BioDiesel is about 70% less polluting than regular diesel, and it’s non-toxic compared to the very toxic dino diesel.

It’s almost Thanksgiving, and Christmas will soon follow. During this holiday season a lot of folks fry up Turkeys. After the Turkeys get fried, the oil very often gets dumped down the drain, clogging up pipes, or it goes to the land fill or sits outside or in a garage until it festers. Don’t waste this valuable resource. Recycle your used turkey fry oil!.

I have had Fried Turkey, and it’s to die for. Great stuff, crispy on the outside and moist and tender for both the white meat and the dark meat. Most of the time it appears that the cooking oil gets used once and then it get disposed up in a less than environmental way. It’s a shame, since the oil is not at all used up and simple filtering will allow many other Turkeys to get fried.

Once the oil is ready to be recycled, it can be filtered, dried to remove any water, and then converted to Bio Diesel . BioDiesel is as much as 70% less polluting than Dino Diesel, and is non toxic contrary to normal Diesel. It’s a good thing to recycle your used cooking oil that you cooked your Turkey in.

Many times used cooking oil, especially that which comes from Restaurants gets put back into the food chain. Companies that Render the used oil use it to supplement animal feed. Many times this oil is rancid and contaminated by harsh cleaning chemicals by the time the rendering company picks up the used restaurant oil.
