Used oil

I was just wondering what you do with your used oil when on a trip? I would need to drain my oil before I could use the containers my new oil comes in. So far I don't need to change my oil road side but that trip is coming. Plastic bag? Dollar store container? Any ideas?

Dollar store baking pan in the parking lot of an auto parts store. The auto parts store will take the used oil.

Buy a gallon of water from the grocery store. Drink the water or put it in your camel back. Cut the top off the jug. Use it to catch the oil. Pour used oil back into the oil containers. Take back to auto parts store to recycle.

Do it at a truck stop. Used 1gallon jugs are the norm for the truckers. Fish a used one ourtof the dumpster. When done, dump the used oil into the recycle tank, and return the jug along with the empty cans to the dumpster. Wash up in the restroom if you,er bad at it like me

Just pull up over a storm drain and pull the drain plug, simple...

I like the truck stop idea. I like truck stops either way. You can do anything at truck stops.

Just watch out for the piss jugs and lot lizards.

I've done it at an auto parts store before. They had a drain pan for me to use and a recycle barrel for the oil.

Do it at your campsite. Park bike over fire pit, drain oil. Move bike. Light fire.
