I don't know if it is quite that easy. I have seen some info on biodiesel, and it looks like it takes some work to gather, and refine the stuff to a point that it is a reliable fuel. Maybe it could be marketed as a blended fuel, kind of the the gas/ethanol fuels that are offered. If you go out and buy a new diesel powered truck, and want to run it on biodiesel, I'd recommend that you check into any warranty restrictions. It is still a promising alernative fuel, but it's just an emerging option that's not really "full grown" yet.
