Turk burner hydrocarbon cracking pyrolysis prototype

This is my device to convert waste oil to diesel or petrol. The basic principles are simple. Distill oil and break the molecules to shorter chains to create light fuels.
In practice, quite some trial and error is required to get to a working model. The turk pictured above made 13liters of fuels from 14liters of waste oil in its' first run.

***This has now been dismantled for the parts to build the newest prototype***
