In terms of quality there is no difference both can be made to meet ASTM specs for road fuel (this is the standard required by the EPA). In terms of sustainability there can be and generally is a big difference. WVO is the reuse of a waste product that does not require the cultivation of new croplands to produce it. It also provides a community with a locally produced product which because it is locally produced keeps more money in that community.
