Va Beach, Need help using 210 gallons WVO weekly

I need someone local that is homebrewing Biodiesel or interested in homebrewing to help me collect and use spproximately 210 gallons of WVO per week. I can use maybe 60 gallons a week tops, but can't get a deal unless I take it all from all 6 restaraunts. PM if local and interested in partnering. Have performed a titration on 1 liter and it the used oil isn't that bad.

You can store bio with an addative for a long while. I suggest you barrel it up, get a CB and sell it to owner operators for 70 bucks a barrel, thats 1.27 a gallon. Thats what im gonna do here in Arizona if I can make it properly.

210 gallons a week equals about would equals 10920 gallons in one year, 210 barrels, enough fuel to put over 200,000 miles on my truck. With 55 gallon drums costing $20 each and needing 4 a week to store the fuel equals about $80 a week in barrels and I don't want to have to put the money saved into buying barrels. Not to mention the methanol at $250 per barrel and the cost of lye. But at a $.70 per gallon to make selling for $1.27 per barrel works out to $11.35 profit per barrel, I don't think that will cover the electricity that goes into making the fuel. Besides I don't think the neighbors want to see barrels pile up over the next year.

Wow, I guess your costs are higher than mine. Hope you find an outsource.
