Bio diesel newb here

Never would I get rid of my truck due to fuel prices, BUT I'd like to start making bio-diesel to save a little bit, I hear you can make it for very very cheap a gallon, I really have no idea where to start but I do want to learn to make it, and run it in the ol' 6.0.

Pretty much, I'd like a list of things I'd need to get a small bio-d setup going, what all I'll have to do to the truck (if anything), etc.

Thanks guys~

No mods to the truck for Bio-d. It is a pretty drawn out process though. Why don't you just take a trip over to texas, and we can convert it to straight veg?

I still need a system to make that though right?

Pretty much, I wanna run an alternative fuel, just need some "know-how" if you will.

With WVO you convert the truck once. With Biodiesel, you convert the oil every time.

First step, find oil. That is the hardest part of the whole process. and nowa days you will most likely need to pay for that oil if you can even get anyone to give it to you...

Start here
Welcome - Collaborative Biodiesel Tutorial Website

read read read and then read it again!!! i have run 2 batches now and BOTH turned out not so good. Start small then step it up slowly. most important thing to do is take your time!! my 2 batches failed because i was rushing and tried to side step things or rush things. also know that if you make crap fuel and run it you WILL kill your injectors.
