Contact a local welder's supply shop to see where they get acetylene gas. Carbide is used to make welter's acetylene.

I have a mate who works in a lab, who was able to get me the bromophenol blue, and the .01% Hcl. I can see if he would be able/willing to help out with supplies. I'll report back! Incidentally, does anybody know how to make the .01% Hcl, it might be easier if I'm just asking for the bromophenol blue?

Mistral chemicals sell both bromophenol blue and hydrocloric acid 10%. I have some of their HCl.
The bromophenol blue is in powder form so you would just add a pinch to acetone to make up the indicator. The hydrocloric acid 10% would have to be diluted with distilled water. By my calculations 1ml of HCl 10% added to 1 litre of distilled water should produce 0.1% HCl. Can somebody check this ?

I could guess how much distilled water to make .01% out of 10%, but I'll put it to herself.....she's a pharmacist!!

In my last post I wrote 0.1% HCl. I meant .01% HCl.

Bought one of these recently and fitted to my processor
I had always used old central heating pumps
Delivery was a bit slow but the price is very good for this type of pump

The mixing of the methanol and the oil is much more vigorous than before also the ventura work better making it easier the add the methanol this pump is less likely to get blocked the vanes inside the pump are metal rather than plastic

The formula for working this out is x= (.365 x 100) / percentage from the bottle.
So if the percentage on the bottle is 10%. 0.365 x 100 / 10 = 3.65. So add 3.65ml of the 10% HCL to 96.35ml distilled water to get 0.01% Norm.

Hi John, if I get the 5g of Bromophenol blue from mistral and add it to acetone, how much Bromophenol blue solution will it make do you think?

Thanks Ninja, I thought my calculation might be wrong. The solution is not .01% but .01N which is a different thing altogether.
Gerard B,I cant be sure but I would think 5 gms would be enough to make up about a litre.

I made up some .01N hcl today and compared it with the solution I always use. It measures the same but I cant be sure how accurate it is. All of my biodiesel is fully washed so measures less than 20ppm. To test it properly I will have to try the comparison on some unwashed biodiesel. Problem is I dont need to make any more bio for a couple of weeks. If anyone has some unwashed bio and would post me about 20 or 30 ml I would appreciate it.

I've been looking at a few cars of late trying to decide what to buy for to put bio in. Anyone any idea how the Suzuki Grand vitara would run on bio. I've been looking at the model up to 2002 as the budget is tight and anyway they are common rail (I think) after 2002 so I thought an older one is a better option anyway. Any opinions?
