Exclamation Found: great WVO source!

Step 1 get car '85 300D-T Step 2; Find source for WVO: DONE!
Just picked up a 1st sample of WVO from japaneese restaurant near home. This is my 1st time and the oil is all soybean fryed w/ no meats. Looks clean since its golden in color! They use about 40 gallons per week and I'm welcome to it. Only used for tempuras... Smells nice too!
Next step is let it settle a bit... and get some filters....
So long Hess and Shelll! Hello Kyoto on the GO ....

I was told that a couple of ounces of STP Diesel fuel treatment to 5 gallons of WVO will accelerate sedimentation and will take care of any water.

Too bad you live in Florida - I work at a food processing plant that emits over 50,000 lbs (6500 gallons) of waste soybean oil per week. I've thought about starting my own alternative fuel business - damn if it wasn't for that "conflict of interest" rule.

Krueger...I'm surprised your company doesn't use it for fuel. I work in the food industry...more on the testing/analytical end. But many oil producers or companies like yours that I deal with are re-using the biofuel to heat their plants, etc. Maybe you should suggest it and see it the'll give you a percentage of everything you can sell!..doubtful but doesn't hurt to ask.

Thumbs up

What conflict?
you work in food not fuel!!!
buy a heater and some filters and convert your 300D to run on the oil you have!
