You can reuse oil after frying anything, but its generally not recommended. You should try to use oil only once, if you can. Reheating oil actually causes it to release toxins, they're not good for you, so you should try to avoid this if you can.

Ans 2 - You can re-use oil adequately if it hasn't been burned. I generally put my oil through a paper coffee filter after each use. This will give you 7-10 more uses before it's useless.
