Anybody selling Biodiesel?

Just wondering if anyone anywhere near me (within 50 miles or so) is brewing diesel for sale?

Trying to figure out where I can buy the stuff, but not looking to spend more than 2-3 dollars a gallon.

Good luck, and not in a smarty-pants way. Extreme Biodiesel in Corona was at $3.94 about 2 weeks ago; Greener Tomorrow in Chino was at $3.9X last time their website was up (it's just a placeholder now). I'm making it, and it's costing me @$1.15 a gallon.
Why not make it? You can set up an entry-level processor for about $500.00, and provided you can get decent oil...
Seriously, if you can mix a margarita you can make bio. Being half-smart is plenty.

Its really a space issue for me or i would make it myself. No room for equipment of any kind or size unless it is kept outdoors (not even fenced in).

I was really hoping to find someone who is already set up making the stuff and has the ability to produce more than they can use. I figure if a guy is making it himself for under a dollar fifty, then he could charge me $3 and we'd both be getting a good deal...of course thats only if he has extra???

I wanted to make my own, until I found that a Tehachapi outfit has all of the oil in this area locked up in in special receptacles at all of the establishments. No oil means no fuel!!

So how would someone go about setting up? ive got enough room to do it inside the garage i think... if it doesnt take up more than a car space... thanks
