heat and gravity...
Heat it to 150 and leave it to settle 1-5 days, whatever is necessary.

Once the settle is done is it best to pump off the top or drain out the water from the bottom first?

you can easily pump from the top, use a clear hose so you can see if your getting down in the water.
How much water are you talking about?

settle for 2 days to start, pull a sample from the top half and do a hot pan test. If there is still water in it, leave it to settle longer.

They said the oil might range but maybe up to 30% is some cases.

sounds like you'd be better off drinking it if you were dying of thirst in the desert

If this oil as all you had, it could be dewatered maybe with the right process but personally i don't like to spend that much time with my oil...i process and use alot so i need to be able to do it fast and easy. The oil i get is completely free of free water and the suspended water is attached to the particulates so basically i can filter only and get the water out.
