Now I will be able to turn my trash, plastic, paint , rubber, motor oil into usable diesel, this is not the conola based diesel you've heard about, this is true hydrocarbon diesel. take a peek at the youtube link,

mine will be slightly less complicated, here's a pic of the reactor chanber so far.

There was a segment about this on the TV show "Daily Planet" last night (3/20/12). There's a pilot plant in Ontario that converts 2000lbs of mixed dirty plastic an hour into 5 different kinds of fuels ranging from natural gas to diesel. Looked like a pretty elaborate set up and pretty legit. It would be pretty frickin' cool if this is do-able on a small scale.

Finally got time to get a bit more done, decided to insulate the reactor, also, built a condenser from some copper tubing and a 200l drum, should have this thing up and running in a week or so.
