Washing oil

I rigged a half-barrel and decided to clean up some used veggie oil yesterday so i could spread it on the road close to the lake without getting the ground all salty. As usual i was in a hurry so just piled some old pavers for a stove and jammed yard debris underneath for a fire. I collected i guess 5 gallons of rain water from around, and dumped about 10 gallons of oil on it.

It boiled eventually and the stuff siphoned off nice. Oil was on top, then solids and leaves etc stayed in the water. Boy can that water hold salt! Woowee! (i use my tongue to taste everything - don't worry the stuff was boiled first) Anyway i think if a person wanted to - they could use something clean like a turkey cooker and get good recycled veggie oil. Long as there's plenty of water underneath, it can't get hotter than 212 anyway. :)

Never got around to tryin it,but was once told that filtering water containing gas through a chamois skin was possible.Apparently the gas will drip through the skins pores,but it absorbs the water??
