my unfiltered WVO[used fry oil] wont drip consistently after poured/agitated into the tank. After ~2 days the drip is better= the suspended stuff that plugs the drip has settled..Q= any idea as to how to get the valve plugging stuff to settle faster? Trying to avoid filtering.........thanx

If this was water and suspended silt / clay , I would suggest floculants - I suspect that there are none suitable for used oil.

The commercial biodeisel set ups I have seen reply on filtration...
