Question Need some help??

My family owns a restaraunt and we currentlly go through about 20 gallons of vegetable oil a week in our deep fryers. And with fuel the way it is I thought about putting it to good use? Is this worth while you think??? I would like to learn how to make it if so? Also if someone could tell me what I need. Im willing to get the equipment to make it if I need to. Thanks

I generally advise against buying a kit because you can make your own for $200 to $300.

Kits can cost in 10 times that.

The web site I posted has plans for making a processor from a water heater. You can use a used heater if you can find one.
