The Forum has been offered an amount of Ethanol racing fuel. It is denatured Ethanol and all fuel excise will have been paid on it, so there is no excise liability if we accept it.

I am talking about a large number of 205 Litre drums of ethanol.
We would also need to take away approx 75 empty drums. I believe that it will be a bulk lot, we can't take only the Ethanol, we would need to take the empties also.

I am discussing this with moderators to ensure a fair method of distributing the Ethanol to members who would like to use it either in making biodiesel or in spark ignition engines.

The fuel will be located in the Gold Coast area, so this limits the ability of members in areas other than NSW and QLD to participate, although it does not exclude them. We would need to be able to remove the full and empty drums and I am hoping that we can arrange the collection on a particular day, or days.

What I need to know from members, is what amount of Ethanol you would be wanting (drums) and what you plan to use it for.

Members who can assist with the transport and short term storage should also post here as, without transport, we can't get it.

When we have some responses, the Moderators will discuss allocations of the fuel.

Members needing a supply of clean fuel drums should respond to the other topic I have posted. Expressions of Interest - Fuel drums - Qld (http://www.biofuelsforum.com/off_topic_area/5478-expressions_interest_fuel_drums_qld.html#post30201 )

My only issue is that it would be difficult to get it brought to WA, so I may not participate, but then I may, depending on freight costs.

I have been informed that the fuel and drums would need to be collected on the 27th October.
To provide an indications of scale of the operation, a total of 90 drums will need to be moved. Some of these will contain Ethanol, some will be empty.
We need to plan this well, especially the transport and storage of the fuel.

Count me in too, please. Fuel for a petrol car that I hope to run on E100 if possible, 200Litres? Happy to transport up to 5 full drums with up to 5 more empty ones to Brisvegas

Count me in. I can take about 10 drums(maybe more if required) to the Sunshine Coast QLD. Full or empty, as long as I end up with a couple of full ones. I will have no trouble getting rid of the empty ones
