I would like some facts about producing my own . Found a company that sells biodiesel manufacturing equipment and im think of investing


What laws are there on production, selling it on to the "public" as it were etc.

I reckon there would be some kind of tax you have to pay if youre selling it for use as a fuel

I seen a van pass my house the other day,they collect old used oil and turn it into fuel.

You have to pay tax on anything you make over 6k i think it is.

Just donate it to me, and then I'll donate you some cash back. No selling taking place there
