Anybody using BioDiesel here?

I am building a generator that will run biodiesel, and later SVO or WVO

I live in aan area of NY state where biodiesel is not commercially available, so it will have to be made at home.

WVO = Waste Vegatable Oil
SVO = Straight Vegatable Oil

Diesel engines can be run on vegatable oil, in fact that is what they were first designed to run on.

I looked into but it is all but impossible to get in this Province at this time.
You are going to make it at home that sounds great. How are you going to manage the process? What are you going to do with the glycerin? I'm a soap maker and that is expensive to buy so you may be able to sell it to someone local.
I know of one huge company in Mass. that will deliver to NYS and there are a few in NJ as well as and least one in upstate NY(I do not know if they deliver)

I saw a show on the Discovery channel with a segment about this.
One guy was collecting used cooking oil from fast food places.
Made the exaust of his cars smell like french fries.

Just saw this add in Mother Earth News and was wondering if anyone had any comments on it. Good? Bad? Is it really neccessary to have equipment? I obviously don't know much about biodiesel but DH has a diesel truck and has been asking questions.

One of the oil companies in my area offers a #2 fuel oil product (available by special request and delivery) that has a 10% non-petroleum content.
