Winterizing Fuel for 2007-2008

The last two days have seen cold temperatures around the cloud point of biodiesel fuel.
Unfortunately several coop members have experienced problems starting their cars. Check the message board of the Yahoo! group to follow the complete thread. Other members have experienced poor engine performance in several makes and models of car, as well, pointing to the fuel as the culprit.

A common concern raised is water in the fuel or fuel storage tank.

We need volunteers to remove the sludge discovered by John Shepley and McComas Fuel's delivery man/tester recently.

Can we do this 'cleaning' before delivery of kerosene to winterize the current batch of B99?

Saturday 130pm Mark Eckley will arrive at Mill Valley to commence sludge removal.
Any other volunteers?


Here is correspondence about the tank (digested by your faithful secretary)

FYI...
Here is Info from Ted Rouse, where he asked Doug (the guy who provided our tank) about it's history.

Can we organize some volunteers to look into opening the drain cock on the tank and removing some sludge? Other near-term solutions would be to rais the intake to about 3-6 inches off the bottom and to transfer the contents (The upper, presumably clean fuel) to another tank or drums to separate it from the sludge.

Here is Doug’s response….
tank was cleaned and visually inspected prior to delivery. sludge in the bottom is inevitable in a new tank. That is why there is a drain cock in the bottom to drain water relatedstuff out. doug

Doug Carroll communicated he had not seen the tank in six years. Curious.

There is no drain. Make of that what you will.

Note the temperatures for the last week Nov. 4-11, were down below the cloud point for soy biodiesel B100.

Importantly the temperature has been dropping below 40F most nights. Even soy-based B99 can gel under these conditions.

Hi there!
I would like to burn a theme at here. There is such a thing, called HYIP, or High Yield Investment Program. It reminds of ponzy-like structure, but in rare cases one may happen to meet a company that really pays up to 2% daily not on invested money, but from real profits.

For several years , I make money with the help of these programs.
I don't have problems with money now, but there are heights that must be conquered . I make 2G daily, and my first investment was 500 dollars only.
Right now, I managed to catch a guaranteed variant to make a sharp rise . Visit my web site to get additional info.

Good day, sun shines!
There have were times of hardship when I didn't know about opportunities of getting high yields on investments. I was a dump and downright stupid person.
I have never thought that there weren't any need in large starting capital.
Nowadays, I'm happy and lucky , I started take up real money.
It's all about how to select a correct partner who utilizes your funds in a right way - that is incorporate it in real business, parts and divides the profit with me.

You may ask, if there are such firms? I'm obliged to tell the truth, YES, there are. Please be informed of one of them:
