Anyone have a source for SA in Houston? Or nearby? I'd rather buy it by the gallon rather than pay haz-maz shipping charges.

I'd buy 4-5 gallons if necessary.


The more I know about biodiesel, the less I know about biodiesel.
I may come off as sarcastic or funny. That's because I am.

Ace Hardware sells two different brands of sulfuric acid. They are on the drain cleaner isle.

Sulfuric Acid is also for sale at your local auto parts stores...
Usually sold by the pint or so... Battery additives.

I don't know the purity.

I believe the names are Rooto and Liquid fire. A good test for effective acid is to place a table spoon of sugar in a small plastic container.Pour a small amount of acid over it. Within 60 seconds the sugar will react and turn into a larger black blob.

Battery acid won't work, only 20% pure or somthing like that.
