This is a bizarre experiment where a YouTuber attempts to produce diesel at home. MR. INDIAN HACKER is one of the biggest YouTubers in the country. He keeps performing interesting experiments. These mostly revolve around automobiles. He has over a jaw-dropping 35.8 million subscribers on YouTube. This informs us just how huge he is on social media. Let us take a look at the details of this latest weird experiment of producing bio-diesel at home.
YouTuber Tries to Produce Diesel at Home
The YouTuber mentions that he will use the waste vegetable oil after food has been prepared in it. We generally throw out the oil after frying a food item. The YouTuber and his team go to a local dhaba and get huge quantities of oil which has already been used to cook eatables. Instead of throwing it away, the team brings it to their experiment location. Firstly, they boil it to 80 degrees and then let it cool till 60 degrees using a reactant. Then he adds 4-litre Methanol and 100 g Potassium Hydroxide to the oil at 60 degrees. Interestingly, they keep this solution out in the open for 2-3 days for differential extraction.

After 2 days, the solution separates the impurities at the bottom. Then the YouTuber adds water to this solution and keeps it for 2 days. Since bio-diesel is not soluble in water, the impurities which are soluble in water are removed after two days. Finally, we get the bio-diesel. The team showcases how this bio-diesel burns along with the real diesel. They both burn similarly. However, the bio-diesel was slightly difficult to burn and douse. To test the real-life application, the team operates a generator pump using this bio-diesel and it works just like it would with normal diesel. That is just impressive.
This YouTuber has been performing experiments for a long time now. His viewers are very supportive and intrigued by his endeavours. In fact, he already has close to 2 million views on this video in just 15 hours. That is a testament to the popularity of his videos. While he performs strange experiments most of the time, this one is actually pretty good. There is real-life and practical application of this experiment. He mentions that there could still be some impurities in this bio-diesel. But that is expected since he created this at home. Finally, we would like to warn our readers to never try such experiments yourself. These chemicals pose a huge health hazard.
