What do you guys do with your oil when it gets skanky?

I dig a hole, pour mine in, and cover it up. But there HAS to be something more useful?

I bet it would work great as a fire starter? (when firewood is wet and uncooperative)

I have on occasion poured it right down the garbage disposal with scalding hot tap water, mrs johnr gets all uptight about that, not sure what it would hurt?
I fill the sink with some sudsy Dawn dish soap afterwards, and give it a soapy chaser.

Living in town I don't have the ability to dig a hole out back and bury it, and I don't want a oily garden.

galwhofishes would freak if I poured it in the drain by the gallon.

And the neighbor doesn't seem to mind me burying it in his hedge row. :)

Usually into an empty wine bottle then toss it into the garbage. My wife is classy in that her wine comes with a screw top.

firepit, hole dug with a post hole digger or on top of the garbage before it gets burned.

I thought about just drizzling it across the wood pile - but worried about attracting skunks, hornets, similar vermin.

I usually take a funnel and poor it back in the container it came in and throw it in the garbage.

How many fish fries do you do on average before you change to new oil? I realize a person should have separate oils for fish and other meats but just wondering what everyone else does...

I use new oil in the pan every time for making fish. Then when it cools I toss a wad of paper towels in the garbage can and just pour it into the garbage. I only use about an inch deep oil bath though in a frying pan to make fish. It works for me anyway.

I guess I was referring to those with big turkey fryers. My bad.

I recently dug a hole and dumped it in there and covered it up, first time for me and I think I will keep doing it. But previously I dumb it back into the jug it came in or a milk carton.

Empty 2 liter pop bottles and Juice containers work great, then throw it in the garbage

I pour mine into the jug it came in and toss it in my dumpster. Or else I haul it to the city and dump it.

I have a big oil container that my parents got from sams a while back. Ive been using that for bad oil the last few years. Its starting to get full so I am also wondering what the best bet would be.

On a side note I started draining my oil after every use and then cleaning the bottom. That makes the oil last a lot longer then when I didn't.

Biodiesel. Easy to do, just don't go through enough oil myself. And don't have any Diesel engines.
