California to Florida on I-10 need 110v

My plan is to drive from California to Panama City, Florida on the I-10 the whole way. Just wanted some input on areas of interest to stop that are supportive of WVO. I will be bringing WVO in 55 gallon drums with me and will need a 110v outlet to pump into my 60 gallon tank. Any input from anyone that has done this or similar to this? Drive date is December 16 depart california and arrive to Florida around the 18th or 19th.

I have sent a link to this thread to someone I know in Tucson, AZ, who lives just right off I-10, and interested in WVO fuels, so, he may contact you. You could also try contacting the Terrasante Intentional Community, Tucson, AZ

I installed an inverter on my truck for just such an event. I now use the inverter for a MILLION different reasons. Best investment along with the WVO.

I-10 won't bring you through Savannah GA, but if you detour, come on up and say hi.

Inverter is a great idea. I went a different route and bought a Gulper pump (12v DC). I fitted a trailer connector on the pump wires and just plug into the truck's trailer plug when I need power.

I left california on december 17 and arrived in Panama City, FL on Dec 19. I had forgotten how cold the US is. It was abuot 35 degrees in New Mexico and I tried pumping the oil. It took me about 30 minutes to finally realize the 3inline filtering set up was not going to work so I just pumped straight oil from barrels to tank. My donaldsons were lasting about 600 miles each but who cares as they were only 11$ each.
