Default All that used motor oil we take out of our motors... did you know???

That it's a FEDERAL offense to transport more than 5 gallons of used motor oil without a hazardous materials license??? I normally bring mine to the local Valvoline oil change place 5 gallons at a time (the max they will take at one time they say). Well, I had 10 gallons and figured I'd take the other 5 gallons to the place two doors down and let them take it. I asked the Valvoline guy if he might take the other 5 and he says sure, but it's a federal offense to transport more than 5 gallons of used motor oil at a time. Hmmm.... guess I was a fellon today!

At 24 quarts per oil change (2-12 Qt. pans), I always make 5 trips to dispose of my used oil.

LOL!! I like to live life on the edge!!

Like they say,

If you aren't living on the edge, you're taking up too much space.

My local town maintenance shop has a "local only" oil recycling center that is open 24-7 and I have never had a problem bringing more than 5 gallons...but then again maybe they don't even know

Mike,
You just need to put a piece of paper with the proper code and info, within reach of the drivers door. In other words, if you die enroute to the oil place and have your window down, they can reach in and read the list of stuff your carrying so they dont die too..
There is a book with all the codes in it.. now if you carry LP in a van.. now your a fellon.. that is what I was told.. oops!!

I got pulled over by department of transportation and I had my oversize load permit for my boat but i had Propane injection on my truck and he made me pull it out and surrender it to him( the tank was just a barbque grill tank). I ask him how you are supposed to take the tanks home to grill on and he said you have to have it in the open and have a sticker on vehicle.

I told him not to cook his steaks too well done with my propane then he started writing more tickets.

I wish they gave a national award for tickets, because the last time my lawyer counted them i had over 500. I should get some kind of trophy.
