Oil Spinners - whats your electric bill difference.

Well I spin about 60 gallons a month and my electric bill is about $50-$80 above normal depending on how cold it is. What is your results.

I got a Simple fuge with a wvodesigns 220v inline heater.

You guys actually watch the bill?

I've got no clue what my power consumption is.
Guess maybe I should look into it, just for fun.

I have too. We had a $1500 dollar bill one time because the wire from the meter and the breaker box was being grounded and constantly draining power. Had to get a lawer to settle it with power company

Dude, now that would really not be cool.

I've not had a situation of that magnitude, but in the summer my outdated ac unit puts my bill through the roof

I usually just glance at the total and if it's within $100 of the norm..... I go with it.

What I have is the basic version, maybe it is called Ver .1

I don't know. It does not have a feed cone.
And specificaly what I have is one of their DIY kits that was assembled by a 3rd party and sold to me labeled as a "Bee Clean Centrifuge"
It was assembled well and built like a tank, I tore it down and had a local machine/electric shop put in some new shaft seals, but other than that.... it's top notch.

But a feed cone? I'm pretty sure I don't have that.

Be glad if you have a lot of crap in your oil. I only get 30 gallon before I have to clean the dam thing. the 3 feed cones tubes get sediment built up around them.

Oh that stinks.

I can run a hundred to a hundred fifty before I even need to look into mine.

I just looked through your photo link, the feed cone looks cool, but maybe not huh? lol

And whats up with the pics of the floor, did you have a spill?

Ya that was spill 1.0, I had another last week i have yet to clean up
First one was about 15 gallons And that picture is before the 3-4 gallons of water got mixed with it from a roof leak in my workshop that night.
