What do I need to get setup? 250-500 gallons

Hey Guys, i've slowly started the switch from gasoline power vehicles to diesel powered vehicles. My boat is diesel powered Volvo and my new to me truck has got the 7.3l. My mustang, Toyota corolla, and my wife's mdx are the only gasoline powered vehicles left in the household.

Anyway, the thought of brewing my own biodiesel for under .50 cents a gallon has got my mouth watering.

Does anyone have or can anyone put together a shopping list of stuff that I need to buy to get a mini chemical plant put together? I'm looking to use 40 gallons at a time every 2 weeks or so but I'd like to option to collect as much as I can and store/brew as needed or as time allows. So anything from 250-500 gallons of pre-brew or ready to use storage is requested. Of course, if price is a big factor, i'll get the lower end.

Thanks in advance.
