Been there, done that.  It will work for a while, but before long you 
will get a buildup of waxy substance inside the fuel system which will 
eventually cause problems (not to mention ridiculously frequent fuel 
filter changes).  The "wax" precipitates out when you mix veggie and 
diesel.  My apologies if I did not use technical terms.

Bottom line, either make biodiesel out of the veggie, run a two-tank 
system or perhaps blend 85% veggie with 15% unleaded in warm climates, 
but I would not recommed mixing veggie and diesel in the same tank.
