For a cook stove.... first one that uses a wick... wont work. Unless maybe you increase the wick size? Bio-D is thicker thus it wicks up slower.

check out the Protos cook stove. It will run off straight plant oil.. but the red diaper dopper babies will only sell it to third world countries. Only available in Phillipines... anyway...

check it out anyway for ideas on how to pressurize AND use a tube that sits in the flame to preheat/thin/help vaporize the the Bio-d for better ignition.

Please keep us/me updated on your progress

Their website seems to be down but Goodfire Stoves in the Philippines have a unit that works well on biodiesel. You need to be able to heat the bowl with alcohol (recoverd methanol) first and then flow the fuel to it. It is a simple gravity fed stove.

The "Protos" stove webpage is HERE.

This links to a website showing a home-built burner using the same looped vaporizer design, he was fueling it with biodiesel for testing, no new info since 2006. This links to a past discussion with more info about both of these burners.

Tim, incase you didn't see it, the Protos has been thru a revision. They are now manufacturing the Protos II.

But only still in the Philipins and they refuse to sell to non third world countries.

I saw that but have not yet researched the changes. It looks like they added an outer wind shield at least. These folks seem to want mostly to get funding by grants. I have researched LOTS of nice products developed for third-world use, the developers websites are HEAVY in on-site research about local manufacturing, distribution etc, I wish I could convince somebody else to pay my way around the world to spend time wandering around interesting places to ask dumb questions. I have only found tech detailes on a couple of these products and they weren't developed by any huge non-profit think tanks.

This links to TOPAZes link in the "veg oil pressure stove thread", it links to the Protos newslatter. I find it interesting that there limited production of the stoves in the target countries has already pushed the price of vegoil high enough that some of the folks that bought stoves can no longer afford the fuel. The BSH folks have stopped production on the stoves and now are concentrating on how to grow more oil crops, must be more grants available for that.

There is a really nice 3rd-world oriented manual seed oil extracter/crusher that I am still trying to find tech details about, no luck over the last couple of years, lots of info on 3rd-world manufacturing and distrabution researching, plus tons of BS economic research papers and such, a couple of tiny pictures, but NO DETAILS.
