Hi,
 I really like this thread and learned a bit more.... I also got this when I started to write...

Sorry if I am breaking a taboo but things haven't changed and the info is still good!

I just wanted to add this thought...Oil based paint uses Linseed Oil which is a triglyceride the same as soybean oil. So if you are looking for something that will stop polymerization, and is readily available, try thinking of your fuel as if it were paint, and you wanted to stop it from drying rapidly...
 turpentine slows the hardening of paint, so does gasoline. Having the can full and the lid tight slows it too.
 I wash my BD in snow and rain water, removing all the soap and methanol, after this the polymerization slows to a standstill. Go to the infopop biodiesel list and read about what Tim C. Cook does with his SVO to treat it...something about Baking Soda...

Anyhow, BPJ
