What is the best way or the cheapest way?

What is you budget? Its going to cost you a bunch up front to burn that cheap fuel.

Agreed. Regardless if you choose biodiesel or SVO (straight vegetable oil), you're going to have several thousand dollars in up-front costs to get you up and running.

However, if you're putting about 25k miles on your rig each year, your investment will pay for itself in about that same time. After that, its money in the bank.

If you're asking if its possible to safely run SVO without processing your oil beforehand......I won't beat around the bush -- its not.

That being said, I have a person locally who collects considerably more oil than he can use and I buy 250-300 gallons from him every 4-6 weeks. Might be an option for you. I don't have to mess with collecting, people stealing my oil or barrels, etc. After I have the oil back at my house, I can process 50 gallons every 72 hours (heat, settle, and filter) with maybe 20 minutes of my time invested.

You can pump right from the dumpster to your tank. Yes you can but you will mess the truck up in no time and that free fuel now will cost you a bunch of money. dont believe everything you see and hear....

to do it right you will need $2-$3k for a CF setup and $2-$3k for a DIY setup on your truck or $4-$5k for a DFA kit. so to do it right and get started you are looking at maybe 4k DIY or 6k with a kit. Is that in your budget?

This is why I buy my oil also. I get really good clean oil from a fryer company. I usually buy about 500 gal at a time. I call my guy a month in advance and tell him to save me 500 gal and I go get it all at once. no messing with the junk in the dumpsters or all the snot. works good for me!
