Where to get oil on the way south?

Hello friends,
Yesterday I flipped the switch and the bus started running on WVO.
We are leaving Oregon heading for Mexico on or about Thanksgiving. It doesn't look like I'm going to have time to get my collection trip together before we go so I'm looking for places to get oil from here to there. I will be full when we leave here. Does anyone know where I can get some oil in California, Arizona or Nevada?
Thanks
Jerry

Hi Chuck,
Usually what happens is that the summer storms blow all the palm leaves away so I give the local workers a few bucks and they put all new stuff up. In Mexico anything being the same the next year is a crap shoot. For me it always has been there but you can never tell. I had that place built just for the bus. so everybody thinks it's my place but I don't own it.
Hopefully I have a handle on the cost of fuel now. We shall see.
Jerry

Re: Where to get oil on the way south?

The trip went great. 28 days and about 2800 miles. I developed a leak in the coolant line to the flat plate heat exchanger and had to bypass it. I tried to fix it, it still leaks a little but not enough so I can't use the system. I saved fixing again until I got South. The System works great. The WVO temp runs about 150. I'll be trying to collect oil from the little local resturants here on the beach, we'll see how it goes.
85 in the day and 65 at night.
MMmmmmm Good
