    If anyone have been reading in the diesel section, I've started running my truck on Waste vegetable oil (the kind from deep fryers).

    I drove out from NY to CA in my friend's MB diesel, but couldnt carry enough for the whole trip. (Great driving car, not enough storage). We were only able to carry about 1000 miles worth of oil with us, and have since been depleted.

    If you know of any sources (aka, you know the owner, or you work there) and can give us a hookup, let me know. I went looking around the San Jose area today, and oil is either hard to find, or in these nasty bins.

    GREAT sources: Vegetarian or Japanese restaurants
    OK sources: French fries, and other lighter frying
    Not so great: Deep fried meats
    Would rather avoid: If the oil usually looks like molassis, dont bother.

    I will be in the SF/oakland/San Jose area for another week, then down to LA/Pasadena area. So i will take all hookups as I can, as I am still driving back to NY!!!
