This company claims that their technology will allow you to easily convert veggie oil into biofuel for about $0.46 per gallon. Basically you add the proper additives and pump the batch through a filter into your vehicle. Sounds too good to be true. [Confused]

Great catch Kesta! I did a google on DSE and found out this stuff is snake oil and the company is targeting people new to biofuels with heavy marketing and false claims. [Thumbs Down!] DSE additive Material Safety Data Sheet General Synonyms: dimethylbenzene, xylol Molecular formula: C6H4(CH3)2 This is a mixture of the three xylenes, m-xylene (CAS 108-38-3), o-xylene (CAS 95-47-6) and p-xylene (CAS 106-42-3), and often also contains ethyl bezene (CAS 100-41-4)."

Looks like Bio-T has already done it and have all the "secret". This book seems to be yet another public info for sale. [ June 07, 2006, 06:55 PM: Message edited by: PandaBear ]

Many folks are just adding 10% diesel or kero and 10% regular unleaded gas to filtered waste vegetable oil to get the same result.

From the DSE manual.... To five gallons of veg. oil add... 1/2 gallon kerosene 1/4 gallon regular unleaded gasoline 4 ounces PowerService additive 1 ounce DSE secret additive ------- Don't waste your money. It's snake oil. There are thousands of alternative fuel users out there running problem free without it.
