    Default Waste Grease to Diesel

    And it smells like a fast food restaurant!

    A former co-worker of mine (non-permanent but longterm employee) began a small biodiesel operation from local-source restaurant grease several years ago. She and her partner produce enough diesel fuel for their own personal vehicle needs at minimum, don't know if they are producing excess to personal consumption, haven't seen that much of her since she began working as permanent employee for another local large employer.

    I know how to do it, but it is a lot of work. You have to convert the grease to bio-diesel or it will clog your injectors.
