Lightbulb Help! SVO/WVO Diesel Conversion?

I am very interested in buying an old MB and converting it to run on vegetable oil, but my concern comes in the way of is it really "worth" it? Sure it will be cheaper in the long run, but initial start up is quite costy. Which seems to be the main hurdle with any alternative energy/fuel.
Anyway, for those individuals who have done this conversion what are your thoughts?

Sell my 96 Civic CX which returns 50mpg and buy a 70+ MB Diesel which gets maybe 35 mpg tops but runs on vegetable oil?

All contributive thoughts are welcome.
