Why? Is A-N that much better, or does nitro/dynamite cost more?

If it's the latter then an increased supply of glycerine would help offset
that.

So cheap nitro will be a byproduct of the glycerin byproduct of
biodiesel transesterification... get the MEs busy building building a
nitroglycerin fueled engine. Talk about engine knock! Might sound like
a buzzbomb.

No, if it even looks at any external energy input... it detonates....
Boom... in a very BIG WAY......

That's with a detonator which gives a high pressure shock wave. I asked
if it burnt.

Why bother asking IDIOTS ?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nitroglycerin#Detonation
" Nitroglycerin and any dilutents can certainly deflagrate, i.e. burn.
However, the explosive power of nitroglycerin is derived from detonation:
energy from the initial decomposition causes a pressure wave or gradient
that detonates the surrounding fuel. "

So yes it CAN burn.
