    Default No duty on self made biodiesel

    Not sure if anyone else has spotted this but on the 30th of June the regulations concerning small amounts (less than 2,500 litres per annum) of bio-diesel changed.

    Essentially you do not need to register with the Government or pay duty if you make less than this amount per year.

    Depends where you get raw materials from & how much you pay, if anything, but at the most 40p per litre plus your time. You must get it right though, go on a bio making course or similar.

    35~40ppl but then there is the capital outlay for equipment and from what I have read the shelf life of "home brew" biodiesel is not so good.

    And the palaver of shifting 750l of the stuff from home to boat I guess.

    A trailer with an IBC on it will move 1000 ltrs a go. You can also use cooking oil direct from the supermarket.

    Sorry, IBC Intermediate Bulk Container, a plastic tank in a metal frame costs £25-30, specially made for transporting fluids. Check on Ebay.
