I was creating a small-scale bio business in a local small warehouse, so I dipped my toe in the water a little in this area. It's perfectly legal for personal consumption as long as you pay your road taxes, which vary by state. The building owner wanted info about the MSDS of the materials and his insurance company wanted info about process safety and venting, particularly since methanol and methoxide gas are highly flammable. Both parties wanted to know about spill containment measures and have a contingency plan for emergencies, too. I was planning to have the local fire cheifs come out to inspect the place and look for any potential additional hazards as well. Anyway, I never pursued the business because I got busy with other stuff so that's as far as I got.
Just curious, why not simply convert your truck to run on WVO? It's a lot less work, lower cost and makes all the safety hazard issues go away...
