That's what I was just thinking... 2,400mi is a long way to transport it though. :?

They run about 500 lbs per 50-gallon drum. It transports as wax, no hazmat.

Oh yes! We use it on the outdoor vices and such. Just gave 10 gal to a vintage baseball glove restorer.

Re: Free Petroleum Jelly- Slipping out the door!

I found someone who wanted the jelly. This guy's got a 48-foot iron military surplus trawler and a 98-foot ocean-going self-propelled barge with crane. They're set up as fuel scavengers. He sails around sucking the bunker oil out of shipwrecks, draining hydraulic fluid, etc etc and filters and processes it all onboard into ship fuel. I'm delivering the jelly in the coming week and we'll do a grillout on the deck, check out his systems, etc etc. Bay area ZS welcome.

At least you were able to offload it without having some big bon fire thing that got out of hand.

Did I miss the party? Because I have three pallets of baby wipes looking for a home! :lol:

We've still got about 1200 gallons of this jelly over here if anyone's interested. Runs a deuce if you mix in enough diesel.

That would be awesome! We could shell it out in small 1 oz tubes to make buying gas a little easier. I'm sure we'd have enough for every U.S. citizen. :lol:

Good Afternoon, I saw your post about the large quantities of petrleum jelly you are offering to a good home. Is it still available. I am a sculptor and would use it to make oil based clay for sculpting and casting. If it not available to you have a good source? Thanks
