BAAAAADDDD veggie oil
I fill my main tank and one of the spare 55 gallon tanks. When I pull out of the parking lot, I can't make it the short distance to the freeway entrance. I pull over on a hill, facing downhill, and change my filters, which are filthy.
First I think, they are dirty because I haven't changed them once since leaving California. I get on the freeway and am unable to drive to the next exit on veggie oil. I return to the biodiesel place & the guys there agree to pump out the oil and then refuel thru a filter.
It takes three hours to pump out my tank and refill it through their filter. I HOPE it is a good filter - they are putting the oil thru a sock filter and an enclosed filter.
The boss/owner shows up as the sun is painting the desert sky deep reds, light pinks, vivid oranges and blues. He is pissed it is taking so much time. I am surprised he is pissed and not feeling responsible for selling me crud.
I enter Texas, unable to drive on veggie oil again. I do not want to spend the night near El Paso & Ciudada Juarez so I continue on diesel to just past Van Horn where there is a rest stop and a new wee hours of the morning, determined to rest & then figure out what to do tomorrow.
