I am looking for someone in Ottawa that can help me convert a few hundred liters of Waste vegetable oil into biodiesel. This is for a local organization, a sort of charity that is interested in environmental issues etc. but the processing doesn't have to be donated, we can pay for it. [more inside]

I wish to travel the world, learning about renewable energy. Discuss. [more inside]
Are there commercial diesel engines being manufactured and sold that will not lose their warranty if run on biodiesel? [more inside]
What car models are best for biodiesel? Anyone done the full conversion to vegetable oil? [more inside]

BioDiesel or Veggie Oil? What is working for you? [more inside]
I would like to purchase a high-mileage / low-emissions vehicle which I can drive (alone) in the carpool lanes around the Bay Area. Hybrids present one option, though I'd rather be in a diesel VW Golf, running biodiesel. I need help figuring out the requirements listed here to see if a diesel Golf meets them. And does anyone know if filling it with biodiesel changes anything? What other vehicle options are there?
Biodiesel Truck Conversionfilter: can anybody weigh in on the Dodge (cummins engine good; multiply dying transmissions bad) vs Ford (engines bad; everything else ok?) debate?
I've been interested in the growing chatter about biodiesel. Some friends raised an interesting question, though: peanut allergies are increasingly common and are increasingly lethal. Soybean allergies, although less common, still exist. Will biodiesel emissions from peanut or soybean oil cause negative reactions (like, well, death) in people with severe allergies? If so, what type of regulation on biodiesel is likely?
I love my car, but am becoming increasingly concerned about gas mileage and environmental responsibility. It isn't a guzzler, but I know I could do better. What are your experiences with diesel cars? [more inside]
Fuel Filter? Has anybody had long-term experience using North American bio-diesel in a TDI? My dealership is dead-set against it, but my European friends swear by it. (I tend to distrust my VW dealer, but I don't want to be cavalier) Since I live in a moderately cold climate, I would only be using it in summer.
