Generating Inexpensive Power From Waste Vegetable Oil

WVO GeneratorThe people at Affordable Power have developed a generator that will burn 100% used, filtered, waste vegetable oil (WVO). The system makes use of their diesel generator with the Detroit Diesel 2-71 engine. The 2-71 Detroit Diesel does not have a conventional injector pump but rather uses a positive displacement fuel pump which supplies fuel continuously to the injectors. This makes the 2-71 Detroit Engine unique in its ability to run a variety of fuels. Waste vegetable oil can be found for free (if you are lucky), or at a low cost. The price for the generators start at $4995. More information on straight vegetable oil can be found on these SVO forums :: Affordable Power
