this may or may not be related to bio diesel.
But,the man that bought Guys coach had a huge problem with a dirty fuel tank when he took delivery of the coach.
It took a lot of work to get it cleaned out.
But,the coach did sit for a long time before he bought it.


But with fuel so cheap,why would you even think about making it?
Fuel is the cheapest part of owning a Bird.

Ditto that-still getting krud out of the tank. Now that I have 2 primary filters in parallel it helps a lot. No more changing filters on the side of the road.

The other day i was reading on a schoolie forum where a guy was trying to run veggie in a 3126 cat.
The injectors on the 3126 are huge money,no way i would run anything but
good diesel in one.

I dont know who all owned it before us. But so far so good on the filters. I have been to Florida and a bunch of 400 mile trips to western Kentucky. So far all is good

I'd figure I'd better soon start to find things to do I like or the wife will make me do the things she needs to have done around the home!
It's not a marriage if you can't say " I'll get to it soon "

Any chance of a seminar or something about Bio Diesel at the rally ?
