Frotter,
 You say you don't filter below 100mic? Have you got a filter on the engine before the pump, if so what micron?
I am twin tanking the Lister to run on palm. It is heated in a hot water tank and gets to 60+c the fuel lines are water heated but it will not, yet, go through the engine filter despite it being water heated.

Hi Jotec,

I have just been on your website and seen your advert for waste vegetable oil and noticed you provide suppliers with a Waste transfer notice.  I was just wondering do you have any information you could share on this?  i.e. do you need a licence from the council?  Do you have to pay tax on the end product? Are you inspected by an external body?

Hi Dick - i use one of these just before the IP -

http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Small-Inline-Fuel-Filter-Petrol-Diesel-BioVeg-x-5-/320672445156?pt=UK_CarsParts_Vehicles_CarParts_SM&hash=item4aa99132e4

I think it comes in medium and fine flavour, i use the finer one. It is only nylon mesh, no idea what micron size. Not less than 100 though for sure. In old style mechanical diesels i have not had ANY issues due to 100 mic particles. Water, yes. You want to keep that out. Most issues I had on my road vehicles using finer filters were due to filter cloggages and subsequent visits to hard shoulder....
Good luck!

Thanks Frotter -thats what I use on the liquid veg side. I will give it a go on the 'lard' side.

In brief,
If you are collecting for personal use you do not need to be registered. but you do need to give WTNs so that the oil can be traced and the place you are collecting from is covered for any environmental health inspections.
You can make up to 2500 L of bio a year for road fuel tax free, or use up to 2500L of WVO as road fuel.
There is no formal inspection process but HMRC can inspect at any time. Records of collection, production and use have to be kept.
