Rick, is enzymatic production within the scope of many home bio brewers?

My opinion?

It's not something for home brewers at this time, but I think it has potential.

There was a time when dry wash resins were state of the art, and for a while, they were not feasible for home brewers either. Once the resins became available, homebrewers latched on and figured out how to make dry wash resins work on a hobby scale.

This online manual suggests approval for the standard B5 rating, according to this link/manual:
http://www.porscheownersmanual...-engine-Fuel-quality

But note this Porsche publication that indicates B7:
http://www.google.com/url?sa=t...m=bv.102537793,d.aWw

I read all of this as the usual "it's probably fine, with some reservations as percentages increase, but we don't want to deal with fuel quality issues and warranty claims." I would hazard a guess that standard DPF issues and presumably lube oil dilution issues likely apply.

I've never driven the Cayenne Diesel. A number of years ago, I enjoyed my VW Touareg V10TDI so much that I kept it and sold my gasoline Cayenne S. My V10TDI was a 2004 model pre-DPF car, which eliminated a lot of the issues with high biodiesel blends; indeed, it ran fine on homebrew B100. That was a great machine that I drove to over 100k miles, and only swapped out when I needed a truck for carrying and towing capacity. Been in my Cummins Dodge since, for 75k miles and counting.

Cheers, John

In addition to your article another method not discussed is the two tank solution. Set up essentially like an SVO system except that an in-line heater just before the IP is not necessary. It is necessary however to set it up with a return line to the tank and not loop it. The reason? You want the excess hot fuel returning to the tank to help warm it up.

The best way to do it is by setting up two completely separate filters and fuel delivery systems, as this will greatly reduce the purge time required from miles to minutes.

I have successfully run a 2 tank system with B100 in the hot tank here near Montreal all winter with temps dropping in the -20C range with no fear of getting side lined due to a plugged filter or fuel lines.

No matter the cloud or pour point of the biodiesel when tested at a stand still the reality is that during travel the returning fuel will prolong this by heating up both the lines and tank.

And that is my nickel's worth.

A different way to make biodiesel

Transesterification by Reactive Distillation for Synthesis and Characterization of Biodiesel

I've seen a few mentions of this process on the web. One of the references suggests introducing methanol at the bottom as a vapor. ?
