Apparently you can just mix this stuff with your WVO and burn it good as bio-diesel.

Is it advertised?

rule #2

Is is a commercial product?

Really, you got a piece?  :o

It is only $40.00 to try and you supposedly get enough to make 150 gallons of fuel. Of course it does have the infamous secret in the product name.  ;)

This has been researched and discussed in a fairly in depth way at the biodiesel infopop group.  We're pretty sure we caught a shill pumping the product on the discusion group, so that was amusing.  It's a very informative read.

Here's the link:

Yup, very informative read! Bottom line is 20 gal wvo, 2 gal Kero, 1 gal URG (unleaded Regular Gas) and 22 ounces of super diesel kleen & cetane booster. The snake oil makes no reported difference.

I have a lot of snakes out here on the farm.  Anybody know the best way to extract their oil?   ;)

You are one tough hombre.  500 miles in a day has me vegged out. Glad you had a safe trip and it was great meeting you.

 The MSDS on Diesel secret is on one of the  'grease sites'.   Read it and go to a chemical supplier. ;D I think it's just a thinner/cleaner to keep thing from coking up real bad.
