I've considered such, but diesel engines around here are rather pricey (high demand low supply). Of course, I would prefer to find a good old mechanical injection/direct injection diesel (typically great for waste veggie oil). So far in six years of looking in my area, no luck finding that kind of diesel engine. Maybe I need to look more into how I search for things.

Actually, indirect injection engines are reportedly better to operate with vegetable oils. If you weren't so budget-conscious I could eventually suggest you to look for a crate Optimizer 6500, the improved version of the GM 6.5L V8 still made by AM General for marine, stationary/industrial and military applications, and also for road-legal vehicle repowerings.
