Hi everyone.

This is really just me putting the feelers out to gauge interest and I think the money savers section is the most appropriate to ask in..

Anyway I'm just wondering who would realistically like it if a course was run with the aim of teaching how to make BioDiesel? This would include both theory and practical. You would end up with a small batch to take home with you which you'd made on the course.

What kind of course duration would people be able to do?
Which days too?
What would a fair course fee be considering the potential savings made from the experience?
What size classes would people prefer to be in?

Thank you for your time. and any suggestions welcomed.
Regards.

Alex

Would the course cover how to evade the tax man and the other legal considerations. People getting busted for it.

You are allowed to make 2500 litres of bio diesel, for personal use, tax free.

If your diesel averages 40mpg, then that's enough for 20k miles / year wink

If you are an exempt producer (as defined in paragraph 4.2.1) you only need to record and keep the following information:

the date of each supply and/or own use
the amount in standard litres of each supply or own use

You should check the amounts produced at the end of each month. If you have produced 2,500 litres or more in the last 12 months, or expect to produce 2,500 litres or more in the next 12 months, you must contact us within 30 days to register your premises

What qualifications do you need to teach the course and what qualifications have you got in that respect

Are we talking biodiesel or recovering and using waste vegetable oil?

Its worth bearing in mind that many modern diesels don't like veggy oil, or some biodiesels for that matter. I think Morrisons released a blend some years ago and had to discontinue it.
