anyone making biodiesel fuel?

Is anyone making biodiesel fuel with one of the kits you can buy? At $4+ per gallon this is making a lot more sense. I know bio is not as good in cold weather but even if I can use it for 8 months out of the year it will be a huge cost savings.

Not going to find too many people saying they do on a public fourm due to road taxes, it's almost like saying who's running the red stuff...

i'm going to be making my first batch pretty soon. my buddies dad is a chemistry teacher and professor and pretty much a genius. he's going to do all of the calculations for us over his spring break. hopefully i can be running a 50/50 blend while its still cold, and hopefully 100% bio this summer.

i think you can make a certain amount of bio diesel for personal use without having to pay tax on it. its a completely different ball of wax than running red fuel from what i've heard.
