Bulk is a term that refers to “large volumes” of something, in this case oil.  Bulk oil is typically considered a pallet (around 250 gallons) of oil or more.  Some people (often home consumers) refer to bulk oil as anything more than one gallon — bulk can be a relative term.  However, in the manufacturing world, bulk is typically large packaging sizes (like a tote) or a volume of one pallet or more.
