Who wants 150+ gallons of fryer oil weekly in SOCAL, L.A. area

Catch is that its not free. I spoke to owner and told him about 15 cents per gallon but he has 3 restaurants worth of oil and has to start getting rid of it ASAP. The 15 cents is a gentlemans agreement that you have sole rights to his oil. He told me he has 125+ gallons ready to go right now. I have no use for that much oil and dont have the means to store it or use it all. Of course I would like to find someone for it that would be willing to give me (or sell me) 100 gallons every month or two.

the thing is that I cant guarantee I can get it every other week and he kind of needs someone that is trustworthy. Im going to possibly go there tomorrow and see what we're working with and I will report back. My plan is just SVO coversion. Its nice to have 100 gallons of "fuel" though. I told my wife that my truck just became the road trip warrior.

I'm going to pm you my number. Maybe we can get a third or 4th person involved? Do you have use for that much oil? I see myself using 100 gallons a month max because I can get about 15 gallons a week locally so I figure I would toss it out for someone. I just really think it would take my small pump about 30 minutes to pump all of that oil.
