    are you talking pure veg oil or bio diesel.
    I do happen to have an SVO fuel heater, pipes, and electrics going cheap.

    as an aside......Farm foods discount food shops sell veg oil at £19.99 for a 20ltr drum.

    around a £7 saving over regular diesel but cheapest i've seen anywhere and a saving of around £28 to £35 over a full tank.

    my system is complete and came off my 508D where it worked fine only thing to maybe change would be pipe lengths. A Bosch pump is fine, others have problems with seal failures over a period of time. After a bad case of diesel bug I stopped using ex chippy oil. Should have gone back to new oil but at the time price jumped from 60p a litre to the current price overnight and I did not think the saving worth the effort.
    A good site
