Wvo Needed

My friend and I are going on a going on a 4000 mile trip across the western half of the US in mid to late April. We are looking for people that can contribute WVO that are along the route. A few destinations along the way include LA, San Diego, Tucson, Roswell, Amarillo, Oklahoma City, Branson, and St. Louis. We are going to be promoting WVO on this trip and have setup a website to support the cause. Please visit www.nickpisca.com/wvo

If you are kind enough to help out, please contact me at glenn1179@aol.com.

Thanks,
Glenn

wvo offered

I can give you some WVO if you happen to pass through New Orleans.

Probably can spare 15-20 gallons for a beer or something.

If you get cold and end up in Florida I will be happy to fill your tank, and supply you some oranges too.

The date is getting closer and I have yet to find anyone to donate from this board. Anyone care to help?

I won't be accepting any from restraunts because I will not be bringing my filtering setup on the trip.

Thanks,
Glenn

The system I am building is a self made with ideas I got from this forum and Dana Linscott. I don't have pics or diagrams or anything to share really that hasn't already been posted on this forum.

why wont you be bringing a filtering system with you? that is the most important part of burning WVO besides heating it. what kind of cause is this for? are you showing people how to conver to vegi? we live in colorado and could help you out with some vegi oil.

reasons not to bring filtration

Proper filtration takes a while and involves heating, filtering and pumping (not counting if you dewater, etc. Not exactly what you want to do while on a road trip.

I'll throw it out there again. I have oil and I have a supplier that I'm going to have to give up for 10 weeks in the summer.

I'm willing to share while I'm here, and give exclusivity when I'm not. It's peanut oil, in general very clean, and is about 10-15 gallons every 10 days. I don't drive much (since i'm a student) and that's why I now have a 55 gallon drum full up. I'm going to react about 40 of those into bioD in the next 10 days or so, but the oil will keep on coming from my supplier.

If anyone living in the Uptown area of New Orleans is interested, or was thinking about converting to a WVO system I'm willing to help and share a bit of my stash.

You can have full exclusivity of my supplier come May 2007 at which point I will also be selling my '91 350SDL, the reactor, 55 gallon drum and all other supplies. (this all pending that New Orleans is still here come May 2007). I'm likely to move to a big city where cars, sniff, will no longer be necessary.

If interested, contact me at jshadows at gmail dot com .

If you find your way thru north Texas you are welcome to 20 or so gal of filtered wvo from my stash for the cause.

Jshadows, I make my way down to N.O. every few months. I would be interested in a few gal of wvo while I'm there.

This is an excellent offer. If I had New Orleans on my trip route, I would take you up on it. Hopefully, someone around you can keep that WVO from going to the pet food manufacturers.
