[RC] Bio Diesal - D'Arcy Demianoff-Thompson

Has anyone converted to Bio Diesal?  I have a friend that has the conversion kits.  You get used oil from restaurants and convert it to fuel with the kit.  The fuel then runs around .89 cents a gallon!  I just don't know what the pay load is when hauling a trailer with a couple of horses - if it makes it worth the investment.  The smaller kit is around 2900.00 and with the cost of fuel as it stands right now...ROI would be a year for me!  I put off converting a) because I figured the minute I did it the fuel would tumble and drive my ROI back, b) not sure about the torque ability of the engine to pull a horse trailer loaded.  However, as it now appears, analyst predict diesal to be up around 6.50 - 7.00 this time next year.
