300gal of Fuel Oil, Uses?

I acquired about 300 gallons of fuel oil stored in plastic 55gal drums. (About a year old stored in a shed.) Besides fuel oil heaters and diesel generator, what other uses can it be used for.

Thanks

So far the only suggestion I have to to sell it.

Are there any portable heaters that I can build or buy use fuel oil?

Do you think it's worth it to buy a small beater diesel truck or car for this amount of fuel? I imagine it would save wear & tear on our other nice cars. Non, turbo Chevy love maybe? They can be had for about $1500.

There are multi fuel u.s. G.i. Tent heaters that meet the portability requirement.
Unless it was prepped with stabilizer, i would not rely on it for use in a truck.
You could mix it with fresh stuff at about 50/50 for a truck.
Will work in a old railroad lantern, albeit a dirtier burn than kero.
If you don't have the truck, forget it, not enough to make it worth while. Jmho

I should ask, is it diesel or kerosene? that makes a difference.
