For B100 new rubber or viton is a must.

Biodiesel can kill your IP by chemical reaction(pitting) while WVO can kill it by mechanical stress.
Glycerin can be used to make soap....lots of soap...

Viton lines are not a must. Fuel lines that are in good shape (not cracked) are a good idea no matter what fuel you are using. All modern fuel injection line has a "viton like" lining (viton is a brand name)/

Pitting of the IP can be caused by improper dewatering of WVO. Not sure I have heard of biodiesel causing pitting.
