Fuel system upgrades to make biodiesel/WVO compatible?

I have an 87 F250 6.9l with Banks turbo. Want to convert to run 100% WVO and/or biodiesel blend out of front tank and looking for guidance on all the changes I should make to fuel delivery and return system. If people have suggestions for parts/manufactures and ballpark costs too, thatd be great. Already in process of:

Replace mechanical lift pump with facet duralift to be mounted after tank switch vale on frame
Bypass water separator and use racor combined filter and water separator

Looking for guidance on the rest, including:

Additional inline fuel heating: necessary and where in line and any recommendation on what to use?
In tank fuel heater: Eletrice or coolant based? Thermostat?
Fuel line and seals
Fuel and return lines material, brand?
Seals injector return line cap o-rings?, IP seals? Any other seals (tank selector valve)?
Any additional in-line filtration? # of stages, micron, parts, location (frame, engine bay)

Thanks in advance for the advice.
