Alright, I've got the wife convinced we need to try WVO Diesel to ease our fuel bill. I've been reading a ton of information and I'm ready to try a small batch (biodieselcommunity). I live close to many restaurants so I have a potentially good chance of getting a supplier of grease. Which leads me to ask; what happens to all of the wvo that gets hauled off in a container? Surely the collectors don't use the stuff to make fuel. Am I thinking too far outside the box or would it be possible to get the stuff from the collector??? Jake
PS I know for a fact you can get refined waste dumped on your cow pastures, etc. for free, so what do they do with the grease?
A guy I know has a brother who works for one of the local rendering outfits. Talked to him about buying WVO from them direct. They'll sell it to me for a reasonable price - well under a buck a gallon IIRC. The catch is I'd have to buy a whole truck load at a time - about 4500 gallons.
Now, if I could just round up about 10 local people who all wanted to run WVO and/or make their own BIO, and who each have the ability to haul away 500 gallons, we could split the cost and everbody would get some oil for a reasonable price - without having to invest the time and money collecting it.
