Soybean oil?? What do you guys think??

Got this from a guy i did some work for the other day. He runs a food consession and goes to the local fairs and festivals and what not. He changes his oil every event. Most are only 3-4 days long and he goes through 25gal of oil. He says i can have every drop of it if i want it. He drains it and puts i back into cubies.

Has anyone ever run this before? The lable says "Clear Liquid Frying Shortening". I have read that shortening is no good for a Veg system. Here are the ingredients:

Soybean oil with TBHQ and citric acid added for preservatives, dymethalpolysiloxane added as an anti-foaming agent

The guy does atleast one event a week june-august, sometimes twice a week at 25gal a pop, so we are talking about a min of 300gal. Could be a sweet deal if i can run it!!

I'm pretty sure that is fine to run. The only issue with it is it may be harder to filter cause alot of Liquid Frying Shortening is solid at room temp but it looks liquid in your pic. If it is solid you will have to heat it in order to filter it or pour it in your tank.

Let it settle a week or more, Filter it and run it, oil looks great. You've got a great source now!

looks fine. filter and run it. The citric acid and tbhq burns away at first use. Remember this stuff gets heated to 350 degrees for hours at a time so a lot of additives just burn away or crystalize.

Yeah it was a good find... I agree with you, there is oil out there, even if you end up paying a little for it. There is a guy near me that is selling WVO for .99gal, supposedly cleaned down to 2mic. I don't know anyone that is buying from him so i can't confirm how clean it is.

I am always looking for new sources, my problem is turning new oil away. i just don't want to get to much stock piled. Right now i already have about 300gals that needs to be cleaned. And i still haven't done my conversion yet!!!!!!!

theres other uses like compost piles, bon fires, fence stain, animal feed. I have thrown away oil before but I always try to find someone that might need it.

Clear liquid fryer shortening is the most common oil in the country. 90% of it derived from soybeans. The word "shortening" is any plant based fat that is used for frying in the restaurant industry.
