What to do with possibly 50 gallons of fuel oil until you burn enough to make space in your tank? Do you know anyone with a diesel motor?

Use the 5 gal gas cans to transfer the oil.
Pickup a tansfer pump that screws into the top of the 55 gal drum.
When you get room pump the oil from the 55 gal drum into the 5 gal can.
Add to your tank through the fill pipe

And don't try and put it in a diesel motor. Some old ones can do it but a modern turbo-diesel will have problems. It'll run, but there'll be problems down the road. I see it all the time anymore with biodiesel at too high a ratio to regular fuel or off-road fuel with a different chemical make-up. The modern direct-injection, turbo, EGR laden motors will have nothing but problems.
