Richmond Va area, 200gal WVO and 250 tote free

the cost of DinoD makes it impractical to keep making BioD. I'd like to get rid of both.

If only I were closer.
My brother lives in Richmond, but doesn't drive a diesel.
Someone will snap that up.

unfiltered, no water, went straight from the fryer to tote stored indoors to 250 gal tote stored in shed. The oil was overworked but with the right titration it worked well for me

It now costs me almost $2 to turn into BioD but with DinoD at 2.55 at Sam's it isn't worth the effort and I foresee aprox $50 a barrel the new norm for a long time.

Don't run WVO, but also live in Richmond, do you know anywhere to fill up with B20 or B99 near Richmond area?
Best regards,
Matt

I have never had a cubie in a box burst, even stack 2 high on a trailer down bumpy roads for hundreds of miles.

I have had a 250 gallon EBC get a leak in it... of course that was from a black bear biting a hole in the bottom corner.

They're not at all UV resistant. If they sit in the sun for any time... Splash.

OK, I don't leave them outside.... because the bears would carry then off.

Ok, I did once and then .... the bear carried them off. There was a trail through the woods of empties....
