Biodiesel Review by Utah Biodiesel Supply
Nov 2012
It's Turkey Time!!!
Winter is nearing for many across the United States and in Utah we have snow on the ground. That can only mean one thing! It's time for deep fried turkey!!!!

Yes, every Thanksgiving across the United States people from all walks of life decide a deep fried bird beats cooking the poultry in the oven. So, be sure to let all your friends, family, neighbors and community know where they can get rid of their (super low titrating, awesome for making Biodiesel) bird frying oil after the big feast is through! They'll be happy to get rid of it & you'll be stocked up with fresh, nearly new oil!

Then, after the big feast starts settling in, stop by our website for our annual Black Friday/Cyber Monday Sale! We'll get you stocked up with everything you'll need to turn all that awesome oil into clean burning Biodiesel. Bon Appétit!

2012 Collective Biofuels Conference

The 2012 Collective Biofuels Conference was a huge success this year! Promethean Biofuels did a fantastic job of hosting the conference and making sure everything went smoothly.

I was able to meet many of my Biodiesel mentors including Dr. Jon Van Gerpen, Dr. Gerhard Knothe, and many others!

Goldstream Monster Gear Pumps
Recently, we've had several requests for custom beer brewing filters so we've started stocking these bad boys! If you're into beer brewing along with your Biodiesel brewing, stop by our brand spankin' new beer brewing page & check out these cool, new filters!
Custom Stainless Filters  
Last year at this time we introduced our stainless drum filters, which immediately became a huge hit! From there we introduced our  stainless tote filters, stainless bucket filters, and even stainless suction filters. At the same time, we started offering a service to build custom filters
Since that time, we've built well over 1,000 stainless filters in just about every size and shape imaginable! So, if you're on the hunt for a certain filter but just can't find it, give us a try! If you can describe it or draw it out, there's a chance we can build it!
Locking Drum Lids Our locking drum lids recently received a major update!
We revised the lid hinge to be darn near indestructible using a heavy duty two point connection and we also have refined the bolt covers. 
If you're dealing with oil theft in your area, these locking drum lids definitely can help! Stop by & check them out today!
Understanding Poly Filter Micron Ratings
Poly Filter

While the micron sizes in poly bucket & drum filters are technically the same as the stainless steel micron ratings, there are some subtle differences in the filters themselves. 

Just like our stainless micron rating article, we compared several poly micron bucket filters against each other, took close up shots so you could see the difference, and posted a handy conversion chart to help you go between Micron & Mesh ratings too! 
Powered By Biodiesel Survey:

The second most popular make & model was a 4 way tie.
1999 Ford 7.3 Liter
2005 GM Duramax
2007 GM Duramax
2005 Jeep Liberty

Most popular engine?

The most popular brands for Biodiesel among those surveyed?
#1 Ford
#2 GM

We also had lots of tractors, backhoes, farm equipment, and home heating furnaces running Biodiesel as well!

We still have some work to do on pulling more data out of the survey results and will share it in upcoming newsletters, so stay tuned!

Biodiesel & Diesel Vehicles - My Opinion
Diesel Engines That Run Well On B100 (100%) Biodiesel
Over the years I've been asked several times which vehicles I would recommend to run Biodiesel in. Judging by our survey above, it seems like a Ford 7.3 liter is the most popular. That said, I recently made a video with "Graydon's Take" on which diesel vehicles tend to do well on Biodiesel and which ones I'd recommend staying away from. 

I also created a list of different diesel vehicles and my recommendations on how well they do with biodiesel.
