How to Make Black Diesel Fuel

January 27, 2012

Making black diesel fuel for yourself can help you to save a lot of money. Once you know how to make this product, you will be able to use it in a normal diesel engine. While there are several different types of black diesel fuel, they can all be made by the same basic method, using some items which you will have in your garage or kitchen, or even which you have bought yourself specially to make this product. While making the diesel, remember to keep it away from any heat source, as it can ignite and cause damage to property or even injuries.

Materials Needed

  • Diesel Fuel
  • Filters from 20 to 3 microns
  • Oil furnace
  • Motor oil
  • Gas can
  • Safety glasses
  • Safety Gloves

Step 1 - Filter the Motor Oil

You will first need to make sure that your motor oil is thoroughly filtered. Do this by running it through one of the filters which you have to hand, the size does not matter, as you will only be filtering out the largest particles. This is to prevent these pieces from contacting your engine. Make sure that you put on your safety gloves and glasses before you proceed with any of this process. As well as motor oil, you can also use vegetable or transmission oil in the process, depending upon what you have to hand.

Step 2 - Mix the Oil and Diesel

You should now mix together the diesel and the fuel. The products should be mixed in equal parts (one of motor oil for every one of diesel). Stir the diesel and oil together until they are well combined. Allow this mixture to sit on the table for 10 minutes or so, and then stir again.

Step 3 - Filter the Mixture

You should now be ready to filter your mixture. Pour it into the largest of your filtering devices, which should be around 20 microns. Then heat the oil and diesel mixture in the furnace until it is around 160 degrees. This should provide you will a more fluid product. Then, filter the mixture through the next smallest of your filters, then the next, until you have run your mixture through all of your filters. This will help to reduce all but the very smallest impurities in your black diesel fuel. You should run it through at least a filter of 10 microns, and you may use even smaller filters if your desire.

Step 4 - Finishing Up

Once you have run the mixture through all of the filters, pour it into a clean gas can, and leave it either under the kitchen sink, or in your garage. Don't let the can become too warm. You will now be able to use the fuel in a car which is suitable for use. You should check that your car is compatible with black diesel before you add it to the tank. You may also have to turn on the engine and let the car idle before the diesel can be used for long journeys.
