Biodiesel sure interests me, but as I understand it no diesel engine maker will warranty their engine if 100% biodiesel or WVO is used to run it, and that makes me think twice. I hear too much from folks selling biodiesel as a Holy Miracle, akin to late night TV preachers, and I know the snakeoil merchants are on to the game.
Then too, at $18/5 gallons, you're paying $3.60 per gallon and that's a buck more than I saw dinodiesel selling for yesterday! I'd be more tempted to do the WVO route if I was going to do it that way, and willing to install dual tanks and feed lines and all that other stuff.
For someone who doesn't use much in any case, it just seems cheaper & simpler to burn dinofuel, rather than trying to save the earth solo.
