Ihhaven't updated this in a bit and wanted to revisit my really basic and hardly scientific setup. Right now I've got a 4-500gal tank full of stuff, by stuff I mean there's a bunch of oil, ATF, diesel, rotten gas, etc in there at no particular mix but it's got a consistentcy a bit thicker than diesel and a bit thinner than 10w-30........ pretty scientific huh? All the stuff I have in the 6 drums and my big tank came out of IBC totes that have been sitting for a long time so I pumped them out without disterbing the bottom 10-12ins. So in my opinion they're pretty well settled but it'll be a few months before i put the drums in the big tank so they'll get to settle more.
From my big tank I pump through a Golden Rod filter that's supposed to be 30 microns straight into my truck. The pumps pick up is @12in off the bottom of the tank.
I still have some plans to improve on my filtering before the oil goes in my truck, but this is where I'm at right now and I'm happy.
If any of you are looking into WMO, make sure you look at @NeverHave-I-Ether
, and @AcIdBuRn02ZTS
stuff. These guys centerfuge their oil and there might be something to it. I'm an unusually poor white guy and am still climbing that ladder, but HEY ain't nothing wrong with doing it right if you can. For me, it's just doing something. Anyone can sit around and say, " oh it would be neat to do something like that", but some of us actually DO IT! I say that to say: it might be better to centerfuge,but you don't have to sit around and wait for a centerfuge to happen you can start experimenting tomorrow. The first time I did WMO, I literally strained 5gal through a shop rag dumped it in my tank went 3miles down the road a found out that my electric fuel pump didn't like my new idea. Got the truck back to the house, ditched the electric pump reattached the manual fuel pump and went again..... without stopping.
