The one thing that I have not yes seen discussed and that is the transportation of the used oil. What are the environmental regulations, state and federal, if any?
To transport used motor oil you must be licensed in this state and the penalties for being caught transporting used oil is very severe. And if you in some way spill a little bit, it is even worse. I have heard a minimum of $10,000 fine.
I can well imagine a company that is licensed to pick up used oil, and gets paid to do it might get very upset if they see someone coming to their customer and picking up their load of oil. A simple phone call could get you in a bunch of trouble, very quick.
I really thing those of you planning on doing this should check out the regulations.
Also, here in WV you can only use your own waste oil, oil that you generate in the operation of your business, to run a waste oil furnace.
Arghhh.. That is Dino OIL.. Veggie oil is a FOOD product and most likely does not fall under
that category. Except in Kalifornication.
