Hey no need to be rude, man! You asked the question, here are the
Kinematic viscosity is measured in "Stokes". You can not measure it
at home without a viscosimetre. There is a comparative way, though.
Take a liquid with a known viscosity value (dino heating oil, look
the value up in a engineering manual) and let a known volume flow
through an upsidedown plastic water bottle with a drinking straw
glued in a hole in the screw top. Stop the time with a stopwatch. Do
the same with your biodiesel (same volume) and compare the results.
Generally a smaller diameter straw will produce more accurate
results. If the time of your sample is 1.5 the time of your control
sample (dino) this means its viscosity is roughly 1.6ish that of the
