 Diesel oil by the drum

Now that truck oil changes have increased from 6 qts to 15 qts it seems that it would be nice to buy a 30 gallon barrel of it to have on hand. 30 gallons would last me about two years, less if I use it in the 90 or so other cylinders I have to keep lubed. Plus it would save having to throw away hundreds of plastic quart bottles. From reading posts over the past 2-3 years I can only remember Chief talking about buying it that way.

Where can I buy it in bulk? And (dare I ask it?) what brand do you recommend?
Dave

Also.... check the prices at the "yellow" Deere dealers.

The prices are sometimes better there when compared to the low-volume Ag dealers.

I would suggest looking in the phone book under lubricants or bulk lubricants. Where I work every fluid we use is delivered in bulk. From antifreeze to 80w 90 and every thing in between. We even get it dyed different colors.

 Diesel oil by the drum

I purchased a 55 gallon drum of John Deere 15W-40 Plus 50 a few years back and have used most of it up. Most dealers will not order the 30 gallon drums because they are expensive to ship for the amount of oil you get. The 55 gallon drums are more cost effective. I paid about $1.38 a quart for the 55 gallon drum I purchased. The John Deere oil is made mostly by Chevron for John Deere but there are a few other manufactures they buy from occasionally. I believe that Rural King sells Shell Rotella T by the 55 gallon drum which is also very good oil. You can also look up your local petroleum distributor and buy it from them and you can buy a batch of off road ag diesel while you are at it.

I use the John Deere 15W-40 Plus 50 in my Cummins pickup, the 4410, the Honda Foreman 500, and the Honda Recon 250. I also used it in the Sea Ray and Nissan while I had them as well. Had very good experience with it.

I think oneace is giving you the best answer. Also check Sam's Club. The last time I was there, they had Rotella in the 55 gallon drums. Other than Sam's, the cheapest I've found, would be Wally World. Check out the case price of the 2.5 gallon jugs.

Also check with the company you, or most of your neighbours, buy furnace oil from.

Most home heating oil companies are also distributors for the whole line of fuels and lubricants. Also, most home heating companies have a truck with a lift gate for delivering furnaces, tamnks, etc., and will bring the barrel of oil to you for little or no money while they are in the area doing something else.

Best of luck.

Some suppliers have a drum deposit and some don't. The last Chevron I used had a deposit and the last Deere drum I used did not, you keep the empty drum. Just as a convenience factor I've went to the 2 1/2 gal. jugs. Far as brand is concerned the ones I've mentioned gave me good service for a long time so I'll stick with them. Frank.
