Whether you just cook a lot, or are converting your diesel vehicle to run on vegetable oil, you may find yourself needing to buy this renewable resource in bulk. Depending on the level of your needs, buying in bulk could constitute purchasing a few gallons or entire oil drums. For cooking, virgin oil is recommended, while used vegetable oil is recommended for driving because it is the most environmentally friendly.


Virgin oil is available through supermarkets. If you only need a few gallons, bulk and warehouse stores are good options. These providers sell jugs anywhere from one to five gallons.
