Powered by 100% Vegetable Oil

This is what my trunk is full of

I collect about 12-20 gallons a week. I usually have more canisters. The oil pictured is peanut oil. I mainly use soy and peanut. In my plastic box: I have a massive funnel, with a clear hose attached to it, industrial strength gloves, the plastic lid (used to protect the ground when I fill up, a used oil container that is cut out to collect oil in the bin. I also have a hand pump just in case I need to manually collect the oil.

This is what makes my car run on veggie oil. It’s a massive oil/fuel filter. The gold thing is fuel pump, that pumps the heavy oil into my engine. Great setup, nice and simple. I got it done at the Lovecraft Station.
