you may have to offer them a little $$ but watch it or you'll be going backwards on your production cost. unless you're just going green and don't care. I have discovered that here the rendering plants pay the restruants for their oil but they charge the gov for the schools and they charge the rest homes and hospitals. this is ignorant but that's what I've figured out.

just call me Ashley!

Look for smaller places that don't have a an oil tank out back because then they are prolly getting rid of it illegally and would be happy for someone to pick it up.

Why do people pay for it? Paying for it screws up the whole thing. These people are ruining a good thing for others even if they are benefiting. I thought the deal was it was cheap and green,but paying screws up the cheap part. I am just doing it so I can drive my F-250 around and afford it. I don't have to worry about shortages or $4.00 a gallon fuel.

you have a valid point but they have started paying for wvo and it has become well known so a lot of places expect it. after all cooking oil is traded on the world market just like petro..

Making calls is NOT the way to go.

There are 2 ways to get oil:

#1 You have to make RELATIONSHIPS. Eat at the restaurant often. TIP GENEROUSLY, they will remember you that way. Make friends with the servers, cooks, manager, whoever. Then when you ask for their oil, you are a loyal customer, who is friendly, tips well and is generally a good guy. They are more likely to want to help you.

#2 Get a gas powered pump and a 270 gallon tote in the back of your truck

2002 F-250, 289,000 miles, 89,000 on WVO; Greasecar conversion, 20 plate heat exchanger, AIH delete-water injection in its place, DIY fuel bowl delete, 6637 air filter w/cover, Straight Piped, GPR LED mod, CAT ELC, 203* thermostat, Bosch aux coolant pump, ext coolant filter, fumoto oil drain valve, Aeroforce Interceptor scan gauge, ISSPro trans temp, boost, EGT, elec fuel pressure gauges, Cyberdyne coolant, veg oil, ambient air temp gauges, 80W low beams/100W high beams. No grease problems.
