It's nice that our CHP has nothing better to do than dip tanks in RV's.

Chuck....how come you fill the fuel filter with transmission fluid? Never heard of that. Why not use diesel? Curious.

Hi Arch,
I never have any extra diesel sitting around but I do have quarts of trans fluid on the shelf. It works great and you know it's clean. Also, it's easier.

They then did a complete background search on me and after two weeks they phoned me and said I was cleared in their investigation. Will I report a crime again? Not likely!!
It seems the Canadian government doesn't trust its citizens, much like they don't trust their citizens with handguns. Lovely country, though. I hope to visit my grandfather's birthplace of Prince Edward Island one day. The .38 will stay home.

Geez, maybe that's why it took a couple of weeks for them to get back. I had the whole Canadian government checking on me.

Chuck, if you ever run out of ATF to prime the filters with, sneak some of your wifes cooking oil from the kitchen, it also works really well.
I also, in my working life, used ATF in my shop to fill new fuel filters. Like you, I always had a supply of ATF in the shop, but rarely had any diesel fuel. ( Didn't have a kitchen to snitch a little vegetable oil from)

And why do you believe we don't have handguns?

*67 only hides the number from the party you are calling. Your carrier and theirs still sees the number and can supply it to the police.

The police that did that to you may have suspected the same thing.
When I worked for Circle K, I got occasional calls from from the police asking if something bad was going on. They frequently got fake calls that attempted to draw them to one part of town. To protect me, the first thing they would do would be to ask if I could talk.

Now that the original thread is completely hijacked.

High sulphur diesel is no longer refined for sale in the US. Off road fuel is the same, it just has red dye added. Actually, when I was buying off road fuel, the local distributor added the dye when the fuel was delivered to him. He also added algaecide at the same time.

When I post I assume we are all sitting around a campfire and talking.

Hence a mix of opinions and comments. Works for me.

Definition of VERITY

1
: the quality or state of being true or real

2
: something (as a statement) that is true; especially : a fundamental and inevitably true value <such eternal verities as honor, love, and patriotism>

3
: the quality or state of being truthful or honest <the king-becoming graces, as justice, verity — Shakespeare>


Now, knowing Dunner, was that a misspelling?

Some of you may know I like to sing.. IN fact. Folks keep commenting that I'm good at it.. (I do not always agree.. but once again I got complements Sat night, and I for sure did not think I was doing that well).

Here is the line, Can you recall the rest of the song (I can)

"Cheating on your taxes don't it feel cool, But what's that you said about the Golden Rule?"
"Forget the rules just play to win.. And hate your neighbor for the shade of his skin"

I can't go on or I'd give away the title.

"Xxxx-x-xxxx. Xxxx-x-xxxx.
Listen to the children while they play.
Ain't it kind of funny what the children say,
Xxxx-x-xxxx.

Stab 'em in the back, that's the name of the game.
And mommy and daddy are who's to blame.
Xxxx-x-xxxx. Xxxx-x-xxxx.
Listen to your children while they play.
It's really not very funny what the children say,"

Didn't want to give it away. While George Jones did this well, I thought Hensen Carill's version was better. Of course I haven't heard you sing it yet.
