WVO STORAGE???'s

Ive got 4 55 gal steel barrels. They were used to hold clean new motor oil. I'm sure there's atleast residue if not a qt or 2 still in them.
My question is how well will they work to hold/settle wvo?

Do i need to get all the motor oil out first?
Is it true there is a coating in the inside that will resist poly build up?
If i need to get the motor oil out first, what's a good way to do this?

Any other thought or knowledge from experience is appreciated

Thanks
Vandy

I just dont think what you described is a really good idea.
You best bet is probably an IMC tote.

Steel barrels have value. Sell them and buy an IBC tote. They usually run $50. I recomend checking craigslist.

good steel barrels with removable lid will have a tan coating on the inside. Empty what you can out and then just wipe the rest clean with a rag and that will be fine.

Re: WVO STORAGE???'s

Ive got a 250 gal tote for clean oil. These would be just to hold dirty oil until i can clean it.

Unfortunately they do not have a removable lid. So i don't know if they have a coating or not

Like i said they were free so I'm not out anything. I'm just unsure if i should use them or not
