Greasecar Road Trip-Need Oil Suppliers En Route

Open discussion got few responses, so I hope for better luck here.

I am taking a cross-country road trip across the United States, about 10,000 miles. I have oil contacts in Minneapolis and Los Angeles so far and I'll need about 10 total. Please contact me if you can share/sell me some of your oil, and I will be greatly appreciative. The trip will take place in June and I will keep you updated.

A little more info about your planned route would probably elicit more responses...

If you hit Southern AZ on the 10 I will be glad to help you out. What the heck if you need a garage and a place to stay I can do that also. Thanks

Yes, I'm sure the EPA is doing massive manhunts for all people who use vegetable oil in their cars!

Oh, yeah, that's right, I forgot that hybrids run on air!

Anyway, here's all the places we want to hit, so far, not in this order:
Niagara Falls
Guelph, CN
Chicago, IL
Mt. Rushmore
Seattle/Vancouver
Yellowstone Nat'l park?
Glacier National Park
Portland?
Rt. 101/Redwoods
San Francisco/Golden Gate Bridge
Los Angeles, CA
Grand Canyon
Colorado Rockies/Salt Lake City/Salt Flats
4 corners
Rt. 66
Dallas, TX
Gulf Coast
Carolina coast
D.C.
Philadelphia, PA
New York City, NY

The route is not yet finalized, so even if you're not right on it, put you're name down. I would say the places we're not going are Kentucky, Missouri, Tennessee, Arkansas, West Virginia, North Dakota, and Nebraska. Use your discretion, but I am pretty short on contacts.

You said probably not KY, but I'll extend the offer if that changes. Probably could help you out.

Grand Rapids, MI says yes to oil. Plus, if you're lean around Glacier, MT, let me know and I'll bug a friend on your behalf

Great idea by the way. Have you thought about a small trailer with a tote in it?

To bad your not coming through Austin TX. But if your ever in my area of the world give me a call.

I have a dieselcraft CF and then push it thought a 5 micron filter. Good luck on your trip and have fun.

Also check out greasecar.com, good people on that forum.
