I don't know anyone personally who's currently using SVO in theirdiesels, but I saw a great film recently at the Sedona Film Festivalcalled Fields of Fuel. It won an award at Sundance as well as in Sedona. Awesome,well-rounded view of alternatives and making a case for using whateverbiofuels we can and pros and cons of each, what's on the cutting edge, etc. You can find out more at http://www.fieldsoffuel.com/.
The reason I mention it is that one of the success stories the filmshares is NYC-based Tri-State Biodiesel. They collect veggie oil inlarge trucks and turn it into biodiesel. I know it's not quite whatyou were looking for, but it's a huge step in the right direction, andperhaps a contact for you in finding people doing what you want to do. You might find other contacts on the Fields of Fuel Media, Team, or Partners pages.
I made apost today on the same list about an additive I learned about thatallows one to use veggie oil without a conversion. That site, in caseyou're interested, is http://www.dieselsecret.com/index.html. If you hear about positive or negative feedback about this, please let me know.
