    Well the tundra is starting to head out. My woodlot is starting to get a little muddy on these sunny days. We definitely had a long productive weekend. David is a wealth of knowledge. I give him alot of credit for the amount of quality work he has done completely on his own with limited tools and space. My refinery is well on it's way, I now have the ability to refine 1000+ gallons a week. Now I just need to find it. That said, if you know of any sources, whether they be restaurants or anything else let me know. I can pickup 750+ gallons in one haul now. I'd be happy to put in a good word on the dodge. He did a very professional job with that install. And that oil will be ready whenever you come through VT.
    Thanks

    hard to believe but barrels are less hassle,you can unload them faster then pumping,and it saves a step in your process.It took me 3 years to figure that it's "work smarter not harder".This would also ease you winter activities.I would suggest Bio-kleen and startron prodcts for storage.Figure your begin date and me and my guy will start setting it aside.one more thing to put under your hat johnny law will give you less flack the more containers it's in.Thats because less chance of be mess on road.:cheers:

    That many plastic barrels seems like way too much hassle to me. I'm thinking large tank on a trailer. I do not know if your pumping system allows for that type of transfer, but I would work with you to provide an adequate pump. I am open to your suggestions on cleaning, I have not researched much into that aspect yet. I would also appreciate your advice on chemicals for storing filtered product.

    I'm planning on hooking up with a company that has a fleet of 8 or so powerstrokes and catering solely to them and my own pickup. They also have multiple off-road vehicles that they would be interested in building their own conversions on and that itself could create a need of much as 100 or more gallons a day. So I am talking seriously large amounts. I plan to filter 500 a week to begin with. I want to collect locally but restuarants only produce so much. There is one potato chip factory nearby and I am looking into what they can provide. I am just getting this going and I may not even need anything until after the first of the year. Are those amounts even possible on your end? Do you just think I'm crazy?

    Swapping barrels would make more sense, huh? lol. Good idea. I'm looking for a better trailer so that I'd be able to bring more back. Oil isn't the lightest thing, but I'd like to buy in bulk as much as possible.

    My concern right now is the decreasing cost of diesel. I paid $2.00 for 800 gallons of oil. I have a feeling that the oil sitting in my garage is getting cheaper and cheaper with it becoming less valuable. If I buy 1000 gallons @ X and then the cost of oil drops to Y ... I'm a fool. Once I fill this tank one more time I'll have a better idea of just how much oil I'm consuming. Then I'll know when I need it, and how much.

    Should be interesting either way.

    I have (18) 55gal plastic drums we could pump into and dolly... or leave them on the trailer and fill from there. Completely depends on how you're going to manage the oil on your end. I'm thinking I'm going to need some more in about 4 months. I'm really burning through this stuff.

    Hi greasyx

    Just found out about this message thing so sorry for not responding sooner. If you want to know more about the differences I suggest you go to Powerstroke.org to the early 99 forum. There is a post with all the differences. It sounds like up to the spring of 99 Ford was constantly making changes so that each month the trucks were slightly different. if you have an early 99 the turbo and injectors are different from your 2000 I think.
