Re: shortening versus WVO

It will work if heated. But test it with some #2 in a bottle or something before you add it to your tank. See how it reacts and at what temp.

Re: shortening versus WVO

ive got it cooking right now. im thinking 50/50 mix...i did notice that some of it settled when left in the jug...looks like a layer of fat almost. im thinking a good week to let it settle just to see what happens

Re: shortening versus WVO

I've heard that you shouldn't use shortening if you blend it. It settles out i think. Mix some with some diesel and put it in a bottle or something and let it sit for a couple days. Better yet, bring the shortening by my work tomorrow and we can put it in a beaker or a graduated cylinder so we can really see what it does.

Re: shortening versus WVO

You can't use shortening unless it is heated.I think also the fat will leave deposits in your fuel lines.Kinda like cholestrol in your heart.

Re: shortening versus WVO

yikes geuss thats a no then.

this is liquid shortening, it comes in liquid form. i figured after mixing with diesel it might thin out enough to be used.

oh well!

Re: shortening versus WVO

You can try it but I really think your fuel lines will get funked up for sure.

Now you could use it to make a small batch of bio.Check the titration and get to mixing.

Re: shortening versus WVO

doug

dont chance it, its not worth it
the only way i know to use the liquid shortening is to heat it up and run it threw a centrifuge and by the time you get threw doing this process its going to cost you more in electricity than its worth

A centrifuge cost around 400.00 and the pump to run it plus the plumbing and the tanks to keep it in

Other than that its only good for BIO
