    Hi Tonto.
    Burley oil could be anything. I have no knowledge of the composition of "Burley Oil"
    Unless you know the composition of it only included triglyceride oils then you should avoid it. #Even then you should perform a titration, which may show it to have very high FFAs which is not ideal for Biodiesel production.
