Bio-diesel Fuel System for Sale
Interested in making diesel fuel? NESEA Business Member New Energy Works is looking to re-home a Fuelmeister-XT bio-diesel system, model FB-40GDX, with the XT (“extra-tank”) upgrade kit–a 55-gallon conical bottomed wash tank system. This is a great entry to creating bio-diesel and they have all the manuals/instructions for the novice to experienced practitioner. The overall footprint of the unit is about 18’x12’. It will produce 40 gallons of bio-diesel a day. We purchased the unit in 2006, using it for a short time before moving to other fuel sources, so it’s very much like-new. Currently in storage in Shortsville, NY, waiting for you to pack it up and take it home. Contact Megan Larmouth at firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
