Default Not a ranger but f250 diesel

If my neighbor sells me his f250 4x4 diesel
I am going to run wso ( waste vegetable oil) in it instead of diesel fuel.

so my new project hopefully will be filtering and using waste veggie oil and no longer buying diesel fuel.
I will know in a couple of days , he was going to trade it in but the dealer only offered him 1000.00 trade in on a new $44k truck, you can guess what he told the dealership, yeah he is going to a another lot and I told him I would give him at least a grand joking, he said to me he would probably take less , neighbors and all. but his wife has to ok it first.
fingers crossed
I will post pics if this pans out

At the old school I went to all of the vehicles were run on biodiesel and they even had their own building where they made it all themselves. I got the chance to work there a few times and learn the process, very cool for sure and if done right you can save a ton of money!

You can probably sweet talk some restaurants to save you a couple 5 gallon buckets of their oil.
