|TroyBoy||Lol,that reminds me of my dad. He did something similar to that around the same time period. He worked at a Phillips 66 station and would collect the oil back into a empty can and then sell the can when it was full. He said that he kept that money for himself, since he had already sold it.|

back in the day.
My brother pumped gas 50 years or so ago and had a length of rain gutter and wires across to hold the oil cans . Right on the main highway and they sold a lot of oil . the final drippings gave him about 1/2 a gallon a day. cars used nore oil in those days. usually it was ask what grade of gasopline and ask if they wanted the oil checked and. if they needed oil , the can drained in the engine while the windows were washed and the gas tank filled. I still collect the last bit of oil. I save a cardboard oil case,. cut off the tops of 6 plastic cans put then in the bottom and turn the fresh oil cans upside down and let them drip. I used the collected oil in squirt cans, for the drill press, lubing farm machinery and my model T speedster. has the flipper oil caps on the front spindle king pins, spring snackles,, etc

My funnel storage/drain system
Thought I'd post this up. Made it a couple of years ago. Used an old chunk of stainless trench drain I found in a dumpster, scrap PVC and scrap lumber. It works great, is completely out of the way and takes up no room at all! And, the ATF jug doesn't even get remotely full!
