    Hey Gashauler,
    What do you think about Cool Transports in Cudahay or Bloomingoton, There offering 18.00 for training and 20.50 after that. Do you have any insight to this company, and or if they might be ok to work for.

    There used to be this farmer that would buy contaminated mixtures of dyed fuel and say ethanol/methanol or gasoline. The refinery didn't even want the dyed stuff back.

    The farmer build a small distillation stack on his farm, and he would just density separate it out with top and bottom valve pumps. He bought the stuff pennies on the dollar. EPA caught wind of it, and shut him down big time.

    Ethanol mixed with diesel can not be sold for transmix or even gasoline. It's because Ethanol is not a petroleum product. That's the way it was with our refineries anyway. They had to let the two products seperate enough to drain the diesel and then send the rest of the mixed product as hazardous waste.

    Cool is ok and I knew a few drivers that are at Cool. Usally when a larger major shuts it's doors on a terminal the drivers that want to stay there are picked up by Cool. Cool will just take over the contract to haul p;roducts to the major so they will go after the drivers that have been into those stations a million times.That's not bad pay and I would say that is in line with all the others except the majors.

    Sorry it took awhile to get back to you.

    Our trucks would hold 12,450 gallons and I would never feel 1100 gallons.

    A Jlying-J driver in Phoenix had a retain last year @ KM, he loaded diesel over 300 gallons of gas before he scullied out. I sat behind him while he offloaded into a T-mix tank. I had an "out of compliance" (too much Ethanol) load that I unloaded into the same tank. I think at the time Ciniza could deal with that.

    Actually, I think some of the contaminated dyed diesel loads get shipped to Indiana and Ohio... as the Refineries around here don't want to touch the dyed stuff.

    We do have a few refineries that will take red, they turn it into offshore diesel for cargo ships.

    Fishook... I used to complain about all of the EPA stuff in California and Maricopa county AZ. Now I consider myself lucky to have gotten a few years of experience dealing with all of the different blends that go out. In a few years when the Federal EPA shows up in Ohio or any other city/state/county, I could get a job anywhere because its second nature to me to NEVER open an internal vapor, or lid, without having a vapor hose connected. Or not pop the cover off a vapor tube without a plunger in it, or to drop a 10% conventional load in a tank marked CBG only... Not that drivers in other parts of the country cant learn all this stuff, but learning it from the start of my fuel career means I didnt develop bad habits.
