got some crap oil

got some crap oil about 200 gallons worth. It's kind of creamy lookin. Is there anything I can do with this? Guy giving me the oil didn't know where to pump from so it looks like the bottom of the barrel. I wasn't paying attention when they filled my tanks. I didn't bring my setup they said they have theirs already.

Any hope?

Thanks

it sounds like water contamination, if you have a way of heating the oil just heat it to 212-220*F and keep it there until it clarifies then filter it as usual. I get this crap all the time but I make bio so water = lots of soap so I have to boil the water off. just make sure you do stir it occationly or a steam bubble may blow out from the bottom of the barrel and throw hot oil everywhere, don't ask don't even ask

I had some of this over the summer, I put about 3 gals at a time in a steel bucket and placed it over a camp fire on some cinder blocks (mostly just put coals under it as to not start a grease fire). Just stir occasionally, and then poured it right into my Frybrid still filter setup. It worked, but it was more trouble than it was worth IMO.

Might just be hydrogenated grease. It tends to get thick at about 65 degrees.

PSD- yea, I finally got one.

Take a sample of it in a jar, heat it on the stove to about 150, let it cool and settle and see what it looks like. If a bunch of crap settles out you will see it. If it turns nice and golder when hot, its just oil with PH shortnings in it or alot of animal fat - in either case, its usable.
If you heat it and settle out alot of water, its still usable, just wet.
I use a bucket heater, pour my cloudy, animal fat laiden oil in a 5 gallon bucket, heat it with the bucket heater for 10 minutes and it clears right up so i can pour it through a strainer into my filter unit.
