With companies developing safer, more precise equipment for backyard producers, this type of foolishness pops up. Just mix a little vegetable oil with methanol and sodium hydroxide and let it churn for a half hour in the wife's blender. Bet the next margarita tastes good! Making your own biodiesel is certainly a noble endeavor but now is the time to get serious about quality equipment and procedures. The EPA or some consumer product-safety agency needs to develop standards for this activity.
