looking for Veg oil, I-40, I-95 road trip


I have a 75' 300D w/ a veg conversion and am looking for Veg oil to fuel my journey between Tucson AZ area and Upstate NY.

I have a packed car with a travel box on top, so I plan on going a route that is fairly flat. Likely I'll probably go up to Albuquerque, NM, then across I-40, then up I-95. Plan on beginning my travels Wednesday.

I made some PMs to people on the fillupforfree website, but so far haven't gotten any responses. So, any info you have on sources for filtered veg oil along the way would be greatly appreciated.
