Buy Straight Oil - Best type an price?
« on: June 27, 2008, 07:26:47 PM »
Can anyone tell me the best place to buy straight oil and where to buy it?  I am talking 10,000 gallons or big quantities.

Email:  thh9@toddhanson.com

Call a bulk lube oil dealer.

Look in the phone book under lubricants

1) you get a chance to wear a green hat.
2) internal parts (pump, injector) get lots more lube from bio-diesel than low-sulfur pump diesel

not "cleaner" (maybe emissions are lower) but it uses waste fry oil, and no dino oil (except what was used to process the veg oil)!
