A restaurant is giving me oil that says " 100% pure clear frying oil" Bakers and Chefs. It has a yellowish creamy look like some "creamy" oil I accidentally got once, but not nearly as bad. The look is scaring me though. The box is white with orange writing , I think. I think they get it from Sam's Club. It says 100% soy bean oil, 0% transfat. Does anyone use this and know if it is ok?
It's still hard for me to tell which oil is ok, even though I am not getting any that says hydrogenated or creamy on the box. Some do not look very clear. Thanks for any pointers!!!
You haven't stated what conversion kit or home brew system you have in the vechile. With a WELL HEATED system, using creamy isn't a problem. I use creamy in my '80 MB 300D (in-tank heater) and my '69 Chevy 3/4 ton truck with a Perkins straight 6, 354 ci. (no in-tank heater) with no problems.
Thanks Rene. I have a 2003 7.3L Ford Van with a Greasecar conversion kit. Does anyone know this oil? Is it hydrogenated?
There could be some animal fat in it, or the restaurant may even use 2 kinds of oil and the box label is not the actual oil in the cubies. Regardless, your system should be hot enough. Dewater, filter and burn it!

Good thoughts. Thanks Kirk.
When I get a new WVO source, I question the quality/water contant. I will (1) take a raw sample (2) a CF'd sample (3) and put both in the refridg for a few hours. Cooled oil gives a clue of the level of the fats and suspended water. The oil will separate into distinct bands. Fat will burn in a well heatd system.
Thanks for the good tip about putting it in the refrigerator.
MB 240D 2 tank grease car/ heated (has been nice and warm in past)
Currently sidelined to change PEX tubing ... possible issue (cannot move grease, even when heated).
2 55 gal steel drums.
1 heated, sits, pump into 5 micron filters to drip into second....sits, fuel.
Top of both 55 gallon drums have "cream" on top, I scoop out. 5 micron filters have "fuzz"
Filtration has been idle for a few months waiting for me to figure out PEX line issue.
Thank you for being out there for a newbie!
