Ratio?

Just a quick question for the experts:
What is the ratio of raw WVO to clean biodiesel?
I am looking to complete the following equation:

100 gallons of WVO= ________ gallons of bio.

Do any of the process variations yield different quantities?

If you do it right and get full conversion: 100 gal WVO=100 gal biodiesel.

Thank you, sir.
I am seriously contemplating taking the dive.
Our home is heated with fuel oil, although I haven't bought any in 10 years thanks to the wood burner.
When I compare the hours (and hard physical labor) of cutting wood versus the time it apparently takes to convert WVO to bio, I am tempted more each day.
I have to do a little number crunching and put a proposal together to convince the wife.
I really like the idea of pumping fuel into my truck from a tank on my own property. And heating the house.

I use B-80 to heat my farmhouse, and the glycerol to heat my shop. Works great! I did have to change the air settings on my furnace a little but that's all I did. I bought 200 gal of HHO this year to mix with 800 gal of bio. That will last me untill spring! Just planted 20 acres of irrigated cannola last week, that will make aprox 5,000 gal for next year. The seed cost was $2.85 per acre !! I WILL NEVER GO BACK TO DINO-DIESEL
