OK I know that I can get old cooking oil and treat it making new biodiesel.

Well, I got to thinking. (I know. I know. This is where things usually take a turn for the worst. LOL) Some cooking oil is made from peanuts. Can we not take the peanuts and make it straight into biodiesel?

This would give a great boost to the peanut producers out there not to mention cut down on the need for oil seeing that peanuts are a renewable source of fuel.


Oh check out this new ethanol plant article.

I read an article a few years ago about a farmer who started planting peanuts in a part of his property that sat fallow(farm subsidies dontchaknow) and pressing them for their oils.
He used the mash as pig feed and the oil in his trucks and equipment. Supposedly it saved his farm as the fuel costs were killing him otherwise.
