Cleared out some junk today, dirty oil bottles: https://twitter.com/FredCookeNZ/status/ ... 7482248192

Using 20l bottles to store the old oil, atf, flush, bad diesel, etc, in hopes of burning it for heat and/or fun at some point, despite that being illegal.

I figure if it's blended with diesel and/or more volatile liquids, and/or at a very high temperature in a furnace or similar, it'll be fine air-quality wise.

State of the play:

Legal and usable:

  • 244 - NO fuel - okay battery
  • 245 - NO fuel - DEAD battery
  • 744 - NO fuel - okay battery
  • 945 - NO fuel - okay battery
  • stagea - NO fuel - DEAD battery
  • hotel - has fuel - DEAD battery
  • lantis - has fuel - okay battery

Legal and shouldn't be used:

  • 360 - has fuel - okay battery

Not legal & not in one piece:

  • kp - has fuel - okay battery
  • ute - NO fuel - DEAD battery
  • 54vw - NO fuel - NO battery
  • 61vw - NO fuel - NO battery
  • wagonr - NO fuel - okay battery

Not legal but usable:

  • carib - has fuel - okay battery

In summary:

From 14 cars...

  • I have one that is legal, has fuel, has a decent battery, and is working (mostly, missing wing mirror, but...).
  • I have 4 cars with dead/bad batteries that won't start them after a day or so, and 2 with no battery at all.
  • I have 5 cars that are disassembled and/or broken in various ways and a further one that needs a major fix.
  • I have 9 cars with no fuel, and only 5 cars with enough fuel to be used without fear.

How grim! Soon my CC month will end and I'll be in a new month and able to blow some $ on fuel and perhaps a battery or two if I see fit, but I've got that covered.
