Alternative fuels, such as straight veg oil, waste veg oil, waste motor oil and biodiesel are being successfully burned in adapted residential oil-fired gun-style furnace burners such as Aero, Arco, Bock, R.W.Beckett, Carlin, Ducane, International, Riello, Slant Finn, Wayne. (This forum is for gun-style oil burners ONLY.)
The forum is a meeting place to exchange information and ideas for adapting/building residential gun-style oil burners from home heating oil to burn alternative fuels. This includes info on other devices; pre-heaters, heat-exchangers, heat-retention units, thermocouples, pumps, filters, temperature controllers, relay devices, etc. The main thrust of this forum is to build an alternative-fueled oil burner.

DO NOT attempt to adjust or modify a furnace if you are not mechanically inclined and/or have no idea what you are doing. This forum or members are not responsible for results from changes made to your furnace or recommendations to any others that make changes to your furnace.
ALL questions are welcome, so feel free to ask if you have doubts before plunging ahead.
