A used oil tank is really nice.

Most folks have 5 gal buckets the fresh oil was delivered in to drag up the dock..

How do you locate a facility that has the ability ./ desire to empty the waste oil tank?

A centrifuge can only remove contaminants from oil, but will do nothing for chemical changes that oil experiences under the heat of normal operation.
Oil does break down over time, and additives are lost.
One of the biggest factors contributing to rapid blackening of oil is poor sump draining, which a centrifuge does not address.
For the 12 quarts and a filter that my rig takes, Im very happy to know that the oil is fresh and up to specs with my 200 hr oil changes.

"Oil does break down over time, and additives are lost."

This is the argument of the paper towel filter folks , new oil brings the required additives when the filter is changed..

I have just installed scintex centrifuges - around $ 360.00 AUD each - on my 5.9 turbo engines. Very impressed.
