Haven't seen any 10-15 gallon ones, but I've seen a lot of 5 gallon containers.

If your friend searches the Tampa, FL craigslist for vegetable oil, there's a guy selling new 5 gallon stackable poly totes for a good price.

Unless you're planning on pumping out of those 15 gallon jugs, I'd personally go with 5 gallon containers. A 15 gallon container full of veggie oil is going to weigh 120 lbs.

Easiest thing to do is just ask your friend to stop by a McDonalds and ask for their throwaways for a day. They will give them to you...

What about 5 gallon pails that say hydrolic fluid comes in? Or anything similar. I know at our garage we go threw a ton of them and the locals come in and grab them for hauling fuel and such. Now I realize they are not clear but it may be an option.

I have a bunch from back when I had a fish tank.

I gave a $6 deposit for the jugs then payed for water by the gallon.

Any pet store that sells fish should have jugs they can sell you or something.

They're WAY better than the ones that oil comes in new, that people are refering to here...those are pretty flimsy and will fall apart sooner or later...

The ones I got from the pet store have lasted for yearts.

War Zone? What's your general location and sitrep! Keep your head down and watch your 6!

You can usually find 5 gallon and 15 gallon heavy duty plastic jugs at car washes. I prefer the white (or opaque) ones, their easier to monitor while filling. They usually contain soap, degreaser or spot-free rinse chemicals, so make sure you rinse them really well and then get them absolutely dry befor using them.

Where are you located (or where is your freind located) I have 15 or 20 5-gallon jugs I'm storing for later.
