I built a system a few years back that I make some home-brew with. It's nothing fancy and we run it in my wife's '02 TDI, my '92 Cummins and my '81 Rabbit without any modifications. First year we learned to not run it in the winter, no matter how diluted, it WILL gel. Actually we started doing a 50/50 mix with #2 in the warmer months anyway. I built the system because a guy that went to my church was running it in his '06. If you can find a good supply of WVO (gotta be the clear stuff) you can make it for $.60-$.70 a gallon. Huge savings for our situation. Lots of people will tell you how you'll ruin your engine blah, blah, blah but they're the ones that have never done it. There were a few learning curves but we love doing it.
Personally, I would rather run it in older stuff that won't cost a fortune to fix if something happened.
