    I was just wondering what you guys do with your burnt oil. I have a few gallons I need to loose. I used to take it to a local train museum and they put it to use some way or another but I think they've moved. I've found another place that I think takes it, but was just wondering what YOU do with it?

    I take it to AutoZone. I just took 4 gallons last week. They don't charge anything for this service, but I think they only take about 5 gallons at a time.

    Storm drain.

    Just kidding! I have a whole bunch of different places I can take mine to. Local auto repair shop, a transmission shop, the county recycling center, a service station etc...

    I was thinking trash can. Or do what an old friend of mine used to do, change his oil at a car wash and let it go down thee drain there.
