RE: [hreg] french fry mobile
- Hello Kim,Joe Pizur, a solar installer here in Reno, drives a "diesel" truck which he fuels with "alternative" oils. I'm not sure if he has email, but his phone number is 775-331-0228

While I wait for PV to come down to where I can afford it, I have been
looking around. I have noticed that every site I have looked [and I
have not look at all of them] at for solar power suggests that one use
natural gas or propane for cooking, hot water, the dryer etc. Propane
and natural gas are still fossil fuels. This is not sustainable. My
electric now comes from a natural gas to electric plant and we have been
slapped with surcharges to cover the cost of the fossil fuel. All I
have gained materially from my fluorescent lights etc. has been taken
away, but I at least can afford it. Some of my neighbors live on
$500/month, and surcharges hurt.
A few years ago I read on the web about a french fry mobile that took
the old cooking oil from restaurants and turned it into fuel for a
diesel engine. There are some reasonably priced diesel generators
around and I was wondering if one could use the french fry mobiles
method to produce electricity. It would be wonderful to get a check
each month from my electric company, instead of paying while finding a
good use for old oil.
