These are a few links to where it appears rather easy to make it...but I according to what I've heard from the professional people/sites I've asked, before 2002, cummins didn't make their engines compatible for anything more than B20...I think. Anyone hear differently? Is biodiesel from cooking grease better than biodiesel from corn?

As for as Bio from soy beans, you should be able to run just about any grade (B10-B100).

As far as the stuff from WTO... its a pain to convert, and if you convert it wrong it will eat all of the seals in your fuel system.

Also I don't beleive they make it from corn.

Post over on Hoosier Truck Club and see if any of those diesel boys have any insight.

I personally just don't see it being worth it making/converting your own.
If you have a CO-OP or another station that sells B10 or B20, or whichever, then there are no issues running that.

oh-my bad about the corn comment...i thought it was made out of corn-but I guess that is just E85...right? anyhow, B10 at the local co-op is just as expensive...if not more expensive than any other station.

Well when your final cost per gallon is $.19....(after initial equipment and setup costs)...it's worth it...

the initial equipment costs (to do it right) will run anywhere from $300-$1500, then going through the hassel of getting a WVO supply (not as easy as you may think). Your time, all of the chemistry involved, the neighbors worried that you have a meth lab, just not worth the hassle.
