I was wondering how long you can store wvo once it is cleaned/dewatered etc.

I only use my bus in the summer so I was thinking of collecting the oil during the winter for use in the summer.

Thanks

Folks, this is by far the best discussion on ACTUAL use of WVO in buses I have seen!

If you properly filter and dewater your oil and store it in plastic, stainless steel or aluminum containers with as little air space as possible you can store it for a very long time.

Tired,

Can you expand a little on the cent filter you use on the road?  Type, brand, cost "G" force....any info.

Thank you,

John

I'm using a spinner II centrifuge with 60 GPH rating. I have 2 different pump motor combinations. I can pump oil onto my bus, off of my bus and from any onboard tank to tank I want to.

It seems to me that I read that someone was using a power steering pump as a centrafuge.

Anyone have any comments on that.

They are used to "Power" the centrifuge with oil pressure. Not as a centrifuge.

Peach,
  I built a centrifuge for filtering VO and then lost the access I "thought" I had all sewn up for getting it. (a supposed friend that said I could get all I could handle)
  So if you would be interested in a 55 gallon barrel centrifuge.........  Wink  See it here:  http://s58.photobucket.com/albums/g279/Skulptor/Centrifuge/
  Good luck with it!! I'm extremely envious.

I drove 1,600 miles without having to stop for fuel. And if I had a co-driver I wouldn't have to stop at all.
Veg oil is 7lbs a gallon.

Where did you come up with that? I drove 1600 miles without getting fuel but I only used about 300 gallons. That's how things get all screwed up on this forum.

Guys,

Google "Simple Centrifuge" to see an alternative to the "Spinner" that Tired and many others are using.  My reason is that 3400 rpm on an 8 inch wheel makes spooky G forces.  Spinner works, though.

2 cents,

John
