bulk virgin soy

I just hooked up with a place to get new soybean oil in bulk of about 2000 pounds. I am thinking of getting my first batch on Monday. At pounds per gallon, the cost equates to a bit less than $2/gallon. I plan on running it at 50/50 now and when it warms up more in the summer I will bump it to 75/25...

It is in L.A.
And in the next few months I might be getting a VW TDI to commute in so this could really lower my fuel bill.
If you are ever down here, let me know and I will set you up.

Cool.I have been collecting waste oil from the locals but it ain't much and only run about 50/50 in the summer time.I didn't run any last year so I have about 250 gallons saved up so far.Its not much oil but like you said sure helps cut the fuel bill down a bit.

L.A. as in Los Angelas or Louisiana??? If you are talking about Louisiana let me know because I am in Texas and I have been searching high and low for a good oil supplier.

Thanks
