1. Be positive you have wvo sources (Waste vegetable Oil). In some areas these are all taken.
2. Make several test batches in a 2 liter bottle to get an idea of what your getting into.
3. Bio can take 2 to 5 days from start to finish
4. Find a place to dump the Glycerin
No mods to the truck are required. You may need to mix in the winter if your area gets cold. Bio takes time, its a learning process. Once you have it down, its not too bad.
Whats your driving style? Distance and winter weather?
I have two halflings myself, and my drives are 40 miles one way. Best solution for me is WVO setup rather than bio. Im slowly working myself up to automated filtering. Collect oil > pump to settle/storage > turn on centrifuge > leave or work or go to bed > shut off fuge when done > pump into truck. I think for me this will save time and frustration. But your vehicle now has to be converted to run WVO.
The up front cost is about the same either way, some more some less. The WVO system is typically a lower TCO in the end.
