veg. stroke or biodiesiel

I was wondering if I bought a truck and planned on keeping it for as long as it last would it be better to go veg. stroke or bio-diesel. I was also wondering if you put the system on one truck can you switch it over to another truck on down the road with no problem. I like the veg. stroke system because it is easier to mess with then bio.,but is the cost worth it. I don't mind spending the money on it as long as it saves me $$. I was also wondering for the veg. stroke what all is involved. It is my understanding you just have to filter your WVO and then put it in is that correct.

The vegistroke is far easier than making Bio-d but if you make bio-D you do not need a heated conversion...except in winter you will stil need to heat the lines and tank because bio-D will gell at around 35* i think.
As far as taking it off to install it on another truck, yes you can but if you did that you would want to go ahead and use new hose on the reinstall as the hose will go bad over time but the tank, modul and all electronic harnesses will switch over.
