    Used oil very hard to find

    G'Day Gang,

    I have been trying to find supplies of used cooking oil in Perth but have not found any. I spoke to a company that collects used oil and they will sell oil at 85cents a litre which puts it way out of reach for biodiesel production. He said they travel as far north as Broome to collect oil. I can't compete with that.
    Is there anyone in Perth getting around this problem?

    WARFA members have reported no problems getting oil.
    I have 2 suppliers providing over 400 litres per month (I am supplying friends with veggie oil as well as using it myself)
    With the low fuel prices at the moment, I am sure that you will be able to get adequate oil supplies.
    In the meantime, PM me and I will let you have some of my oil.

    Life is a journey, with problems to solve, lessons to learn, but most of all, experiences to enjoy.
