hmm my niece is giving me her used fryer oil. Right now I am using 30 gallons a year to oil down the road in front of two cabins but I am accumulating more then I need on the road so hmm would the fryer oil work as a fuel. MIght be a good way to go with the Studebaker T cab I put a 20R in.

It's my crazy contraption looking a little less crazy with fuel prices yet?

I'm not sure lumber is any cheaper right now lol

Lots of people doing small land clearing, starting gardens. Any piece of brush can be chunked and run a engine! Ya I use kiln dried lumber but just cause that's what I get for free. And I'm only getting wood from one of my yards, I have 5 other yards throwing away all these same pallets and paying to get rid of them. Free fuel, if nothing else free firewood with a little processing. But from my numbers a chord of firewood would fuel my truck just over 5000 miles, vs heat my house for 2 months. Free wood on craigslist and OfferUp everyday.... If you play with diesels, oil has lots of uses as fuel, biodiesel. Or a older 12 valve or 7.3 with good fuel filters you can strain the oil and run it 50/50 with regular diesel. Legalities aside, it's free fuel. Russia Iran and Saudi Arabia wouldn't like it but to hell with them, if the goobermint won't make the country energy independent I'll make myself energy independent. Building a V10 dodge gassifier right now for my heavy hauling needs, and after that I plan to pickup at least a 25kw generator older one with a gasoline motor and woodgas it for off grid needs or when I need to run welders and compressors and the solar system can't keep up
