The first recommendation I have is to use google - it is your friend. Google straight vegetable oil and biodiesel. Read a couple dozen websites or articles and that will give you a good foundation to grow from.
Homebrew biodiesel is not cost effective for broke people. There is a fairly large investment in infrastructure needed to do that. Especially in older trucks - you need to be worried about your fuel lines being eaten by Bio.
If you are talking about veggie oil - see southern comforts thread for some information or my DIY conversion thread for specific questions.

I figured there would be start up cost to get the necessary equipment but I have a friend who may financially support me going to biodiesel. ...but in the ling run does running biodiesel save me money....versus just paying for fuel at the gas station as most people do..I'm looking at long term cost. I work at a restaurant and can get their used grease easily ...and can you run Bio diesel in small tractors as well?
