    Anybody ever try spraying the bottom of their decks with recycled oil using an air compressor attachment? Just wondering...trying to find a use for all this extra oil.

    Used motor oil is full of carcinogens, heavy metals, and other nasty stuff as well. You don't want to be breathing that stuff aerosolized and you don't want to get it on your hands every day. If you really want to use it, mix it with diesel and burn it in an oil fired boiler/furnace or low tech diesel engine. I personally find it less hassle to take it to the recycling center and let someone else burn it or re-refine it.
