You're going to need to convert the psd's to electric fuel pump, ideally with spin-on filter(s) and delete fuel bowl (FB delete not required). Use water separator/heater and an aluminum or stainless fuel tank with ability to switch between existing tank(s) and new tank.

As for the UVO, you need a way of filtering it down to preferably 2 or 3 microns to retain injector longevity. The fuel bowl filter is not good enough, 15 microns if memory serves.

There are cheap conversion kits and there are more expensive kits. You get what you pay for.

With all those vehicles that you would like to run Bio in you will need to upgrade the soft lines to B100 rated lines. Stock soft lines will give you a season before they start to melt from the inside out.

This would be true if he were to run biodiesel but OC stated he's using used vegitable oil. Biodiesel and UVO are very different. UVO requires no changes to be made to factory fuel lines; moreover, it actually has better lubricating properties than #2 low sulfur diesel.
