This is a slide show of the prototype burning a mix of WMO and petro diesel. The air supply is a vacuum cleaner. As you can see it was a bit tough getting up to heat because of the snow. the plan is to put the pot under a 20 gal water tank, plumbed into the hillbilly hot tub. Burning WMO because I had it, & have not begun collecting WVO. The pot seemed to waver a little, would die down and smoke (not much) then build up and burn cleanly. the big valve handle set at about 45deg controls the air, the little oil feed valve controls the drip. the drip tube runs inside the air tube, and at the end of the air/drip tube there is lodged a piece of honey comb similar to the material in a catalytic converter.
