​Summary: How To Make Biofuels

What are you going to do if you have no access to diesel or gasoline? If some form of disaster strikes, it may be days, weeks, or even months before you could have access to either of those things.So lots of people learn how to make biofuels.

That's why a lot of people these days are learning to make their own homemade biofuels. If your car or truck is prepared and you're familiar with the formulas and ways of how to make biofuel, then you'll be in much better shape than the rest of the people stuck in a similar situation.

There are a lot of things that you can use to produce biofuels, but some are much better than others. Remember, you need to convert your vehicle to be able to use the biofuel. It is expensive, but it's not so bad if you convert the truck yourself.


Though not the highest yielding crop, soybeans can double for food as well as fuel. This is particularly good for a survival situation. Learning how to make biofuels is fairly useless if you starve to death.

When it comes down to it, if you're in that type of situation, you're going to need food and if your land is taking up space for the plants that you're going to be using for biofuel, if you can't eat the fuel plant, you're taking up precious space for food growth.

Soybeans usually yield around 45 gallons of oil per acre of the crop. Recently, however, there have been some producers of the oil that have attempted a double press of the product in a hope to double the amount of oil extraction.

making algae biofuels

Algae is another source for creating biofuel. Not only can you grow algae in ponds with nearly no effort at all, but you also don't have to worry about using up land for growing your edible crops. It doesn't require any land area as it can be grown naturally and with minimal prompting.

What's amazing is that this tiny little plant yields more oil than all of the other plants in a one acre plot combined. This doesn't represent all species of algae. Some are more productive than others. Among some of the other plants used are corn, switchgrass, and sunflowers.
