From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank: The Complete Guide to Using Vegetable Oil as an Alternative Fuel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

As pollution envelops the world's cities, temperatures on planet Earth rise, and once rich oil fields run dry, researchers scramble to find solutions to the impending transportation crisis. But the fuel of the future may be hidden in places nobody thought to look. In From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank, expert Joshua Tickell unveils the problems with our fossil fuel economy and offers a surprisingly simple solution: cheap, clean-burning vegetable oil. From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank provides concise, easy to understand instructions for running a Diesel engine on vegetable oil. Packed with photos, graphs and diagrams, From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank contains all of the information you need to become independent of fossil fuels forever.

Review:

" From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank is a great primer on the how-tos and whys of biodiesel. Tickell has driven over 25,000 miles in a van run on homemade fuel!" Home Power Magazine

"The information in this book is invaluable to the experimenting alternative fuel enthusiast...it really is...an inspiration." ReNew Magazine

"Anyone, literally from a child to a rocket scientist, has something to learn from this book." Talking Leaves Journal

"The explanations are written such that they could be understood by a complete idiot." Earth Quarterly Magazine

"Joshua Tickell is the kind of grassroots innovator America needs to move us toward energy sanity!" Jim Hightower, author of There's Nothing in the Middle of the Road but Yellow Stripes and Dead Armadillos.

"We found From the Fryer to the Fuel Tank extremely useful. We learned to make our own biodiesel from waste oil from fast food restaurants and we are building our own little biodiesel factory." Dancing Rabbit Ecovillage

"I ordered the book from Mr. Tickell and I can thoroughly recommend it...the tractor has been happily rnning on nothing but old cooking oil for about a month. Thank you Joshua Tickell!" Tomm Mudd, farmer.
