Biodiesel fuel can be made in your backyard or garage for under $2/a gallon with common ingredients, using very inexpensive equipment. Relatively little chemistry knowledge is needed to produce quality fuel that will run in any diesel engine, and thousands of people around the country have discovered homebrewing fuel to be an addictive hobby. Come learn what it takes to produce your own clean-burning biodiesel fuel, and to build the equipment to do so. These classes are hands-on and fast-paced – you’ll be making test batches of fuel, titrating and testing oil, and assessing quality of the finished product throughout the two day class.

Maria “girl Mark” Alovert will be teaching these courses. She is the inventor of the water-heater based appleseed processor, the author of the Biodiesel Homebrew Guide, and the nation’s premier biodiesel educator.
