Bacon grease as fuel oil.

In Mass. seems to be what all the "cool kids" are selling. Caught it on the news last night, had some photos of what was in the tank. Yup, bacon grease.

    Where did you see this??

    I would think that would be impossible to pump unless heated.

    What brand of bacon? Stop & Shop, Armor, Big Y, Market Basket?

    Seems like there would be a very limited supply.

    There are a bunch of waste oil burners that can use cooking oils for fuel. Three examples are the Clean burn, Firelake forced air and boiler waste oil burners and The Saacke tallow burner is a good example of disposing of animal offal waste and cooking oils.
