Welcome to the biodiesel forum! Do you want to run biodiesel, or just WVO? More info needed.........

I have ran bio , WVo and WMO. I decided against bio for long term as it was costly to make and somewhat dangerous with your methanol. its some pretty nasty stuff if you get it on you. Truck ran great on bio, but didnt really feel it was worth the effort. Just my 2 cents.
