It will work, there are many similar systems - but you can make your own easily enough. Do it in that small an amount and you won't have time to go anywhere. There are a few chemical processes for it to go through and you end up with bio diesel and stinky soap.
You will need to keep records for tax purposes as you can only make a set amount tax free. around 5000 litres IIRC. even with tax, it is alot cheaper than diesel!! Government has tried to make it more difficult to dissuade people from doing it as they would rather you get robbed by them. Put effort in, and you can happily run on peanuts.
The effectiveness depends on your fuel pump and engine. Most BASIC engines, usually with BOSCH pumps seem to get on fairly well, others have problems and fail.
I guess alot of it is down to research and preparation - modifications such as fuel heaters may be required to warm and thin the oil. You may need other things as well.
It may pay to find out on BIO Fuel forums, and see what has been converted and how etc.
There are those that have had issues - and those that run business vehicles quite happily without issues - do your research carefully, and you can't go wrong!
