does a unopened cubie need cleaned?

I got 4 cubies of the cleanest veg ive seen from a craigslist ad.
One of the cubies still had the seal on it.
Should i fuge the new cubie or could i pour it right in the truck?

Vegginpsd probably could give a good answer but he might still be sour at me

the other 3 cubies were almost pristine looking and so was MILF i got them from.

First of all pictures or it never happened. 2nd: yes you can pour it in there but....... if you get anymore give it a splash of diesel. I got 350 gallons of pure Virgin! soybean oil and noticed that it poly's fast fast fast. Of course it polys clear but it polys fast. Like a week and I was seeing a layer of crystal clear goo. Friend of a friend told me its from the "forgot the name" that is put into the new oil to preserve it.

I would test it for water & if it passes then the unopened cubie I would dump right in the tank. If your filter plugs then if you ever find any more unopened then you will know to filter it. Any ones that are opened I would filter no matter how good they look.

Ok the word I was looking for is Parafin. The only thing is the citric acid and parafin that burns away when it is used.

I recently received some soybean oil mixed with palm oil - cooking oil in plastic 8oz bottles about 30 gallons. It was virgin oil in sealed containers, looked and smelled fine it had been used in packaging failure testing at a local lab for a central american food producer.

I FPT'd it - it had unacceptable levels of water. I CF'd it...

FPT the oil.

New oil can have trace amount of water in it. Test it first.
