I still don't understand why auto parts stores still not required to accept used coolant, like with wherever whoever sells batteries and automotive oils and tires. I still have some to dispose from years ago. PITA.

Smike, how do you dispose your waste coolant, from your shop activity; parting out jeeps or from repairs/maintenance/builds? I am this close >< to just start mixing motor oil and coolant, just so its "used motor oil" and take it in to auto parts, but I don't really want to, and you need waste oil for heat lol.

was the price of that 650? it says 800 now lol




Processed 211 gals of oil today into a tote ready for use.  separated about 20 gals of hydrogen peroxide and goooo from multiple buckets and drums of donated oil.  JJ, Tucker, and Jeremy all have to do way better with their oil storage lol

down to 500 today, i might have to make a run tomorrow
Seems like a reasonable price to pay, even if you have to put a couple hundred bucks into it, to have a reliable heat source that doesn't blow your face off
