I searched the entire internet and came up with no results. There is literally zero information on how to make biodiesel on the internet so I hope someone answers you so I can find out too.

Entire internet?

How to Make Biodiesel at Home

Greasecar Vegetable Fuel Systems | Greasecar Vegetable Fuel Systems

Trucks Episode - Making Biodiesel

There are vegistroke systems that guys use on their trucks.

If you search on here or just do a google search for "biodiesel" you can find out how to do it. The biggest problem is finding places to collect the used oil.

Initiative

It takes initiative

I always love these types of questions.
A better way to ask is like so........

I've been looking into (xyz) and read up a little on (abc) and it all sounds a bit "vague". I'm planning on doing (123) and I'm not sure on how great the end results will be. Can someone offer some input on the RESEARCH that I have done?

Couldn't agree more... There are alot of guys on here that have real solid knowledge on veggie conversions and making bio... I have said it before and i will say it again, running WVO or making BIO is a lifestyle, its not just a hobby. I have been collecting oil, parts for my cleaning system, and parts for my conversion for over 6 months now. My truck has not received its conversion yet, and i don't yet have my fuge. So i am a ways off from getting to the finish line.

To the OP... If you really want to go BIO then do you research, come back here and follow Aaron's advice, you will get solid practical experience answers from guys that have hands on knowledge. Asking questions like you did will only get you further responses like you have already gotten, or none at all...
