Collecting Grease

While we have been back in Minnesota, Matt has slowly been collecting grease for us to use when we come back through in the fall. He found a few sources who had 5-10 gallons each time their grease was full, so he’s been bringing it in small containers back to the garage and putting it into the 55 gallon drum he found on Craigslist (for free!). The grease will have plenty of time to warm up and “settle” throughout the summer months. When we return, we’ll have our own little “grease station” on site. Yay!


  1. I would love to learn how to do this! Do we need to have a particular kind of vehicle? We have an older Range Rover that goes through gas much more quickly than I like…

    It’s great that you are planning ahead =)

  2. Hi Jaime!
    Yes, you need to start with a diesel…and then you add a conversion kit to run veggie oil instead. Click on the Sponsors link and go to the Golden Fuel Systems website for more information.
