I've got approx. 40-50 gallons of fuel oil. It may have some sediment in it. If you want it and you've got a way to haul it, shoot me an email. paulsenjna@aol.com

I have a friend that has a heater that burns old engine oil that he uses to heat his auto mechanics garage. He's in Hopkins and I live close to you and I could haul it for him. What kind of containers are we talking about? If I can get it into my trailer, consider it gone.

5 gallon buckets with lids would probably be your best bet.I don't think you want anything larger than that. Whatever containers you've got, just make sure they have lids so it doesn't slop all over your trailer!

If it is red in color it is the Dyed version, which means Off Road use, such as fuel oil stoves, and such. A little cheaper in price too, I do believe. What is it being stored in now, and do you know how old it is.

Yes it would be used for a fuel oil stove, heating your house, etc. Some of it is in 5 gal. buckets right now. Not sure on the age though...sorry!

Hey Sarge, As soon as I can get the containers together, I can pick it upif its still available. I'm off from work the next two days, so maybe I can do it then. I'll e-mail you and get the address. I must live fairly close to you. Thanks.

Sounds good! I'm guessing you'll need about 7 5gal. buckets with lids if that's what you plan on using. I'll look for your email later on.

    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
    • Very quiet so far.  Maybe one distant gobble on the roost but couldn't tell for sure. At least the mosquitos seem to have calmed down in the last 10 minutes some. 
    • Brotha’ you got that right.   Actually I’m cooking hobos over the campfire in Ely right now.  Not a bad second fiddle.   I won’t be a cooking hobo in a blind this weekend.
