Anyone Considering making their own BIODiesel?

I work with a guy who has the 7.x Ford Diesel, I have a 2008 and he swears he is making diesel for $0.90 a gallon. He spent $800 in equipment and has offered to teach me how to do it. Before I spend the money and the time I was wondering if anyone here is/has done it and what the pros and cons are (Other than $0.90 per gal).

Thanks.

I dont think the 6.4's can run on anything higher than B5 so B carefull.

That is correct. No more than B5 diesel in the 6.4. It has to do with emmisions problems with the DPF, cloggs it up to fast.

OK, Thanks. I wasn't sure if it was a good idea, and it turns out not to be. Appreciate the input.

Thats why you remove the DPF, and get a DPF delete tune. I think theres hope for the 6.4's to run on WAY more than 5%....
