  • work truck Idea

    Hi greasy X here,I have an idea,and need some input.I have been watching our economy take a nose dive,for some time now.This Idea was originally a business idea,but now I think it could be bigger than that!!! We all love our powerstrokes(myself especially),so here a way to have fun and help americas best asset a float (small businesses).Here it is, WVO non-commerical work trucksF-250,e-250,F-350,E350,Ramp trucks dump trucks (any thing with a DT444(7.3) lets build some trucks and vans ,Vegistroke them and sell finished products under12,500 pounds(no DOT,at least not my state!!),for a small profit 5-10%(we need to eat too).I have already started to build grease cars for short money(See my sig) I think that this would be a good way to keep these companies going(after all these are our brothers,cousins, fathers,and neighbors.In my case the GreasyX is our eco-friendly,delivery van for our graphics company,it is carbon nuetral,and saves us lots of dough,ray,me...Which has kept our heads above water during hard times!!I would say that proves it works.I offer this info which I have figured to be rational ,economical,and I would say a pretty darn good economic stimulator for all(builder,buyer,fuel supplier!!!)P.s I have crunched the numbers average buyer could save 4000-6000 dollars yearly(8000-14500 miles).If you buy 3 trucks ,road ready(like now when you can pay 60% cost of NADA)convert them,and sell them for 15% over NADA .If you are a sceptic, then look at what WVO BENZs are selling for.Any input on these from someone a little longer in the tooth then i would appreciated......grease out

(Wood furnace.....X.......solar pontoon....solarsheat twins this summer.....I don't Know much.......I'm just a hillbilly with too many guns..............

      Seems like a good idea but around here oil is stiff competition and if you don't have an angle or the correct permits you will pay $3.00 a gallon for filtered oil.

      If you live in a metro area like LA or San Fran, you can get it as low as $2.54 a gallon and some companies will deliver but all in all the consistency is crap at best. But then again California is only ahead of Alabama on alternative fuels, we have the mandates to use them but we have the laws restricting their use.

      We used to have stations selling b-99 but now if you can find bio-diesel it will only be b-5 and it will be at a pump selling #2 for $0.25 less per gallon.

        The facts are there is not enough VO. We are reaching a saturation point. Truth be told, while our host here is enjoying a very prosperous business enviroment at this time, every kit out the door is now a competitor for a very limited resource.

        I feel guilty not wanting to share information about my conversion with people on the "outside" but the reality is that its in my best interest not to promote it. Selfish? Maybe but if you lived in an area where a majority of the supplies have been locked up and resellers are getting $3 - $3.50 a gallon for VO you'd understand.

        IMO the key for a business like this to be viable would be being able to assure a supply of oil. Something I feel even our host will be facing at some point.

          Ok guys ,I'm gonna lay it on the table for you.I believe that if greasers and SMALL bio-diesel producers co-op against THE RENDERS,note (small) in CAPS(200-800 gallons daily), we can take some omph out of the major renders Bravado.Perhaps the general public needs to understand the evil that is corenco,or Korenco(eastern and western).This super commodites hides in the guise of smaller "Local" renders,in the north east its BAKER COMMODITES.This company ships grease to 3rd world countries most of them commy to generate electricity(why not here?$$$)Remember those NUKE plants in Korea?Corenco grease was used to generate the power to build those power plants.(I have seem the documented proof.)This info can really alter peoples opinion about "how well this guy takes care of them". I have secured oil for $1.35 a gallon in New England...........Unlimited sources...I can't stress how much this could ease the burden of "where can I get oil now with all these BIO labs around?"We need to network if we want to still be burning oil with out buying it a grocery store.As far as fuel source, you will be very surprised how much there really is when we stop EXPORTING it!!Imagine buying WVO at a station for$1.85 a gallon in bulk filtered to 1/10 of a micron (i know a little about a centrifuge)(OC-50).this is my resolution to recession,after all its cheaper then the stinky stuff!!! grease out

            I really don’t want to turn this geo-political but we import a hell of a lot of raw oils, Palm, coconut, rapeseed, and soy about the only oil we don’t import is corn and peanut. Since our used oil typically sells for more than foreign raw stock I doubt we export all that much. As for power plants, I do believe the Koreans use low sulfer coal imported from China to supplement their own coal. The same low sulfer coal we import from China.

            As for the actual amount of available WVO, I drive about 1200 miles a week it takes the combined output of 6 Supermarket deli’s to supply me with oil, 3 of those supermarkets have brand new fryers that circulate and filter the oil 24/7. Good news I can almost burn it right out of the barrel, bad news they only burn through 10 to 15 gallons per week. As commodity prices rise, it will become worthwhile to buy new fryers to save on oil costs, and the current supply will drop even further. To top it all off there are some fleets running WVO and blends I know because they buy from a renderer I know, small time 8k gallons per month. While it is good for the renderer it also meant that 6000 gallons per month was no longer available to the general public, and it is much easier to fill 3 IBC’s than it is to fill 36 25 gallon tanks.

            With all that said, That is my area and the market here is certainly no indicator of the market you are in.

                supply and demand

                I came to a point a few months back when I thought "worst case scenerio",If this supplier didn't pan out.Here it is, look toward some education,our schools.no matter where you are you population will directly effect your oil supply.Schools are regulated to change oil after so many cycles.depending on # of kids quicker swap out.Within 20minutes of my small -town there are 4 school districts total around 75,000 people in all(pop VS #kids US census 32%)=24,000 kids even at half a gallon per kid per year(this is gracious) thats 12,000 gallons per year.Thats in Cow Hampshire,how many Kids in your area?We need to change the way people think.Any takers?Hey jason,if this takes off do you have enough V3s kicking around? Got any Kits for DT466s?We don't want our kids breathing diesel,idling in those school buses,do we.The V3 is the foundation for putting no-driver input systems in middle america...I agree if this takes off it will be harder,we just need to work smarter. P.s I am aware of the coal dust,that is what they are blending the WVO with to make a kind of "bunker fuel"to power US surplus diesel powered generators to run welders saws compressors etcetc(I have a friend who is a architect for HOK out of NYC who has personally tripped over 55 gallon barrels labeled Korenco LLC USA while on assignment to build new government buildings next to said site)...grease out
