Default A WVO Processor?

My understanding of converting a 2002 Golf to run on WVO is that it is a 3-part process: Buy/build/learn how to use a WVO processor, intstall a conversion kit (which heats up the WVO fuel line I think), install the higher-viscosity pump.

I didn't know that WVO and biodiesel were different. I'm getting different information from almost everyone I talk to, so any clarification would be super helpful. The viton seals info was awesome (thanks Phil and atc!) My Golf needs a new fuel pump anyway, so if I can just buy the normal one, that would be helpful, but they are expensive, so if anyone has done this conversion or knows someone who has, I'm all ears! thanks!

Are you talking about a processor to make biodiesel? There isn't a "processor" for WVO specifically as WVO generally only requires de-watering and filtering.
