I dont think Drain O is lye, if it is it has water mixed with it, and the reaction will never happen, becuase the Methanol will absorb the water and wont react with the oil,
Methanol you can get in the Yellow HEET fuel additive. 22% of whatever oil you use.
Then for NaOH you can buy it at Lowes, Its ROEBIC crystal drain cleaner. Spoon in a few table spoons of lye with the methanol, shake it up until all the crystals dissolve, it will usually take a good 5-10mins and it will crate heat and pressure so be careful and crack open the bottle so it doesnt pop on you, then add oil, put it in a pot of water on the stove, and heat to 135 F for 10-15 mins, then shake it up and let it sit. It will separate for you, and the glycerin will go to the bottom. If you use too much lye it will just turn more oil than nessecary into glycerin.
