Thanks for the great advise, suggestions and information.
I simply cannot afford to hurt the old yanni as parts
are limited in availability...No more pistons, rings, valves, liners....Currently looking for Chinese sources. (Open to suggestions)
At the same time I cannot simply dump the oil on the ground.
Jeez how did I miss diluting the oil to get it through the filters ???
I have a background in engineering !
This is all actually leading me to a great idea.
I am pretty well respected here ( In particular on environmental issues) considering I am not a native.
I will be inquiring with the local governemnt here about setting up some kind of oil reclaimation program, (We get all of our power from 2 diesel generators and I image they could easily consume all of the waste oil that is being dumped into the land and sea currently.
Gelling is not a problem, we are in the tropics and the population of the island is only 3500.
I am sure a huge filtration system could be set up for cheap
here,( Gotta be info out there for this sort of thing) and would pay for itself in saved fuel costs alone...(Lots of fishing
boats come in for maintenance)
Electricity is 8X mainland price
It will take some beating on the commies heads, (Vietnam bureaucracy cannot see a good idea) but I have the will and support of some big guys in the government
Wow...this could really go some where. Thanks !
