Well, was on an enviromental awareness course at work today ( Fun not..... I did try telling the tutor the best thing to do with the enviroment was to drive over it but she didnt look too impressed :D )
However, she ( my boss ) then informed us we needed to get rid of all the heating oil on site...... I said how and she said chuck it! - I said WHAT? It's worth a fortune! - she said take it home if you want it :D
So..... I managed to gather enough old oil containers for 150ltrs today..... got about the same empty ones gathered when I got home for toorrow as well :)
Not bad..... free heating oil and get paid my hourly rate to take it away!

However..... how do i tell what grade it is?
My parents have oil heeting you see so I am going to give it to them but I'm not sure if it's the right stuff as it was from a school system.
HELP :D

To answer my own question....

" I am new to the house - how can I be sure that I require kerosene and not gas oil?

Kerosene is water white, or very pale yellow in colour, and visual examination of the oil tank sight gauge should confirm this. If the sight gauge contains fuel with a dark red appearance then it would suggest that the boiler is designed to run on gas oil. Newer boilers tend to have a label inside with information on nozzle size, pump pressure and confirmation that the boiler has been set up to use kerosene. It may also reference the British Standard for kerosene BS 2869 class C2. "

I will check what colour their oil is...... this is obviously gas oil I have as its red, not kerosine. If nothing else it will be the best parts cleaner in the world lol

Isn't there anyone local selling any containers off cheap or willing to loan them out?
Have you tried Ebay, you never know?
If it's all profit, surely worth investing in something to store it all in.

I've three empty, new 20 ltr jerry cans in the garage but I'm miles away.
Once put £50's worth of Shell Super V in my Delica! :blush:

lol, theres plenty time.... I asked my co-worker if he wanted any....... " what for? I cant use it" - I said halfes and flog it and he replied " cant be bothered " so its all mine now :D
I might go to the boat yard tho and get some empties, on an " equality and human rights " course tomorrow so might go after that....tried the skip today to no avail :(
I'd happily flog it cheap to local offroaders if anyone here wants.... I might also ask buchan off road club as well...... however my neighbours a spot on bloke and I will also look after him ( he gets me free cubans and cleric etc...... VERY good neighbour to have as a mate ;) )

That's the way to do it.

The school I work at is going to be demolished in 12 months, give or take and there will end up being at least 200 tons of coal left in the bunkers. Trouble is, it's not smokeless.
It's probably the 'cheap' imported chinese muck. I tried some on my multi fuel burner and it smoked like bugger. I'm in a smokeless zone. :blush:

Just thinking of all the solid brass door handles, locks and hinges! Mmmm........

Best get the trailor up and running, me thinks.

Well sold 150LTRs today to a friend of my family's, he wants more as well :D - He cant get it for love nor money in the small quantities he wants in this remote location :(
Got £40 ( which the wife quickly robbed £20 of for kids bedding! ) but I should be able to get enough to pay for my cars welding this week :)
Hopefully I will also be able to buy a bluetooth OBDII adaptor so I can use my phone to reset error codes ect on cars :D - A handy investment :)

I was going to invest in one of those cold teeth thingies but have found that it won't work on my 2001 Jim. Same with the diagnostic reader I have. From what I can find out, it's later Jims that can 'connect' with the readers etc.
Mind you, one would work with my Merc so I still might aquire one.

Good news on the fuel sales, LoL!
Don't tell the Missus next time. ;) :laugh:
