Re: Olive oil heater Wicks Question
- A different type of fuel we use in my high school chemistry class is Biodiesel made from
soybean oil. I have had to design my own fuel tank to use with our wooden putt-putts, I
use 3/4" copper end-caps from the hardware store.
For wicking material, I went to a local candle making supply store and bought 3 feet of
wick for about $1.50 which should last me the rest of my teaching career!
I'll try to attach some photos but if not, visit my link pasted below:
I have also used straight vegetable oil as a fuel but it can be a little more smokey.
