How to obtain used cooking oil from a fast food restaurant. Answered

With today's rising fuel costs, and the promise of homemade or readily available "biodiesel" for diesel engines, I was wondering if someone could make an instructable on how to get used cooking oil from a restaurant- most likely of the fast food variety. Used cooking oil is in excess in these restaurants yet it is a valuable resource to be recycled in diesel engines.

I've been trying to get the used oil with no luck so far. A lot of people around here are already getting it. Probably the best thing is to just tell the manager you'll give him 20 cents a gallon. You might try smaller 'mom and pop' fish places. THey use lots of oil too.
