Copper
by: Anonymous

A reasonable substitute for stainless steel is black iron or steel. Not galvanised as zinc has the same bad effect as copper.

Copper Piping in Biodiesel System
by: Anonymous

Copper is not a good choice for piping as it will oxidise the fuel and reduce it's shelf life. ALso the chemicals used are caustic, also not so good with copper.

The correct material is 304 Stainless Steel but often this is not used in smaller systems for cost reasons.
