  • High mountain Wvo system.

    I am at about 9100 ft above sea level in front range near golden black hawk and Idaho springs Colorado. Getting ready to deal with solid peanut oil as temps are supposed to be dropping. I got the rosedale ss bag filter housing from a groundwater remediation system for free. I have processed around 6,000 gals with current set up. The pressure driven centrifuge is under the soundproofing /insulation.

    Dropping off 6 full drums

    Usually weighs about 2200 lbs. I should get some air bags for the f250. I sell about 300 gals of oil a month to a guy in boulder that in the past stated he collects over 14,000 gals of oil a month. His company has recently grown too so he is up to his eyeballs in oil. Without this connection I would have no idea what to do with all this oil. Let me know if anyone in Colorado is looking for oil

        Updates

        I recently acquired a few new oil sources that are not peanut oil and should pump without heat all year so I added a tote for more clean oil storage. I also could sell oil for folks traveling thru mountains west of Denver Colorado

            greaseguy Yes, air bags are great for hauling two full totes of oil in the bed!

              LOL.
              After several years of hauling 1 tote, 2 55 gallon and 1 30 gallon barrels, plus tools, pump and hoses my cross members gave out.
              It wasnt until after i had replace the bed did i get airbags, also swapped the F250 springs to F350. And now i never haul more than a single tote.

              Any time i had all that in the bed and i went in for an alignment, shop guys looked at me like i was nucking futs.

                still running strong out of black hawk co. Would like to find a cheap gravity feed centrifuge but pa biodiesel pressure driven one still works I heat and settle in steel drum with cone welded to it. Filter thru stainless steel and bag filter and spin in for a bit. Blue truck has 477,000 miles. 212,000 by me. Green truck has 369,000 84,000 by me. Considering looking into biodiesel but bio looks to be a pain…what do bio folks do with wash water?

                  Simplecentrifuge.com the original and highest quality USA made gravity centrifuge.

                  Bio-diesel waste is hazardous. Why would you consider bio-diesel?

                    Spent $200 in diesel filling up both trucks last month. I have surplus Wvo. Would be nice to fill up d2 tanks with bio but lots of work and byproducts to deal with is what biodiesel looks like to me. If d2 hits $7 gal would be looking at $300 to fill both trucks.

                      You can't use bio-diesel in the D2 tank when burning WVO. skyskijason figured this out the hard way years ago.

                        Specifically with a steel diesel tank and failing liner (probably failed in part because of B100).

                        I also had issues with factory filter assembly and FPR getting gummed up, but to be fair - I put 10k miles on a single tank of B100crisscrossing the country. So that fuel literally BAKED under the hood for days at a time. Drive, take nap, drive more, repeat.

                        We stopped making bio-d because #1, I don’t buy that much diesel and #2, the process is very toxic and produced by-products we had trouble getting rid of. Finally sold the BioPro 190 last fall...
