    I dont change my own oil.....even being poor I can still afford to have our cars taken to the jiffy lube.

    I got a coffee can with some oil in it from where I changed the oil and filter in my lawnmower this summer. I suppose I could take it to work and pour into our waste oil container.....but I could just as easily toss it into our dumpster.

    Anyhow... it will probably sit on the back porch for a while till I get tired of it sitting there.

    It actually burns really well, it's almost always very clean, and the trace refrigerant helps it spray better too. I could have swore that was illegal to do this though?

    I worked at a Napa. Had a teacher/treehugger/hippie guy bring in 42 (count em) 42 1 quart bottles of used motor oil. I sold him a re-sealable 5 gal used motor oil drain pan/recycling kit. The kind you bring in we dump it and you can use again. I told him bring your used oil in more often and don't bring me 42 bottles. Next time he came in, he had the 5 gal container filled and 30 bottles!
    There's TREACHERY AFOOT!!!
