Old Fuel Drums

#1 Post by John_Heard » Wed Oct 29, 2014 2:00 pm

What do you guys do with your old fuel drums? Seems like a waste to pitch them, any ingenious ideas on using them for something?

Cut it in half, add some legs and make a BBQ out of it!

Donate one to me so I can store fuel and not have to buy small quantities at a time.

John's buying the high zoot Renegade Pro Nitrous gazillion octane. He's says a new drum is included in the price. John says it's good stuff and priced lower than C16 and definitely lower than C23. I'd like to try some when I finally start spraying the house to the mouse but, traveling to Topeka to pick it up is a bit inconvenient. No dealer in Wichita.

I could do that. I usually have room in the trailer.

John, you need to leave the Nova at home and just take the trailer. Load it up with drums and we can make a big profit selling Renegade in Wichita. :lol:

I'm thinking of trying their K16. I've done some reading and people say it acts the same as VP Q16 so it should be worth a little power. In a jet limited class, I need all the power I can find.
