WVO is not a good source of fuel. The best bet is to make it into Bio-diesel. Thats what I would do.

WVO burned up a injector pump in my 99 6.5TD powered truck, it has glycerin and fats from the foods it cooks that clogs fuel filters and everything else related to the fuel system really fast. Also toasted a lift pump at the same time, but I think that was from age.

You can run 100% bio in the summer months, but it is wise to blend it down to less than 20% in the winter months. Depending where you live ofcourse, and peanut oil would work just fine once converted to Bio.

In my area the highest bio I can get is B20 retail bought as I dont have a processor or the time to make my own bio. I run the B20 in the summer months and when it drops below 10* I switch to B2, as that is the only other blend they offer in this are right now.

Hope you get your processor up and running properly!

Go here it should be able to tell you where your local bio station is. They are not all on here but most of them are.
