8am: I installed the new alternator. Ok, it’s new to us. It works, it was free, and it’s got a few miles on it. The important thing is it’s charging our new 850 cca battery on the Veggiegen. It was 31F this am and the veggiegen started right up on the second revolution. And that was on semi gelled veggie, not diesel.
9am: The wood truck arrived with 6 face cord of cut and split firewood. $40 per facecord. Dumped it right next to my woodshed. Needed chains to get out of my driveway ….
10am: Lit the fire in the WVO boiler. 300 gallons of used fryer oil, brought to a boil using slab and scrap wood from the sawmill. Was at 240F in 6 hours. Boiled the water off, and let it sit for the night. Will filter it tomorrow.
6pm: Made my favorite dinner; Rice, Black Beans, Corn, and Venison Sausage.
Busy day, and I’m beat. See ya tomorrow. It will be WVO filtering and wood stacking day, provided nothing goes wrong with the Veggiegen.
