Western Australian Renewable Fuels Association
Projects Contacts Meetings Links Oilseeds  


We are a group of West Australians dedicated to pursuing and promoting the use of renewable fuels for the benefit of all. We have an online prescence but what we offer is best shared face to face.
Most members run their diesel vehicles on Vegetable Oil sourced from local sources.
They make their own BioDiesel; or convert their vehicle to use the vegetable oil directly as fuel.

How do I do this?

What do I need?

There are many useful resources on the internet for your research. We can help you understand more when you come along to the meetings. Our meetings generally include a 'show and tell', check meeting notice for any change in venue.

A good starting point is Australian BioFuels Forum - www.biofuelsforum.com/

and for straight vege oil in particular, check out the FAQ section of this excellent forum. There is a also a list of oil supplies available to travellers from other forum members.
