Default I fail at the internet

I can pirate games, download porn, music and videos... chat... e-mail... and do a bunch of other useless crap. But when it comes to doing practical, real world stuff... I don't have any idea on how to use the internet.

I need to find a place in my area where I can take old motor oil from oil changes for them to recycle or whatever. Back where I used to live, I think we took it to Kragen auto parts... but I don't think they have those out here.

So yeah... I'm pretty embarrassed to admit -- but how would I use the internet to accomplish this goal? I really have no clue. I don't want to resort to just going throught the phone book and start calling every auto place I can find asking them.

If you have an older deisel engine, just strain the motor oil and use it for fuel. Works for me. I finished a little ratrod a few weeks ago and put an old nissan 4 cylinder diesel motor in it. That little son of a bitch runs on will run on what ever you put in it. Kerosine, motor oil, even damn cooking oil. Won't get up bast 35 but who cares.

No deisel engine or anything.

I'm not looking to make use of this oil... I'm looking to get rid of it.

Using a Google Maps as a prefilter can be useful. Punch "used oil (zipcode)" in as a query and you should get some relevant results to sift through.
