are you talking oil from transformers? There was a discussion on it a while ago and I dont remember the consensus, besides if they are old ones like 30-40 years that have I think CFCs or something like that in them that is outrageously toxic.

PCB's are a serious concern.
I would not recommend this.
Atleast have a lab analyze the chemical makeup of the stuff.

yeah will work and i think its safe to say any transformer with the old toxins in them have bee replaced and the oil destroyed in a safe manner.
I wouldn't worry about it.

I work with submersible oil pump companies every day that use mineral oil for a pump lubricant and cooling. They normally have a couple gallons left over at every install. I never thought of using it for fuel, I can get tons of it!

As far as I know its safe to run, so as long as you can test it for PCBs then burn it up!!!

Its baby oil without the fragrance!!!!

Hey Clay,
I don't know how close you are to Claremore, but Baker Hughes Centrilift is one of the companies that we work with stationed there. They dispose of tons of this stuff, you might be able to get ahold of it if you could find one of their pump techs.
