Although your point is valid regarding the correct installation, there is absolute coordination and testing of the system prior to paralleling with the utility grid. The utility will not allow a tie without verification, therefore eliminating any possible unplanned back feed .<quoted text>
I would have concerns about the average homeowner installing a grid tie system. They cutout switches have to be installed correctly or you risk sending power to the grid during an outage and perhaps electrocuting a lineman working on the grid.

Not really. The process yields very dirty fuel. And the cost of cleaning it to modern standards is still too high.
There is a similar process that creates DME which is also a diesel substitute but it is much cleaner. As yet, it is still too expensive too.
