sounds reasonable.....

The only problem would be that it could be considered a moonshine still, which is still punishable by hanging in the state of Texas. Don't know if I'd spend $10k to get hanged eventually, but hey if it saves a few bucks!

I like the idea that the spark plug crowd can collect tossed booze from bars and us WVO/bioD folks can do the same with used plant oils from restaurants.

Moonshine still and hangings?
TEXAS
Gotta love it!
