Thanks. I just have to find my old black pot from the good old days of tent camping!

It would be perfect on top of one of my "Swedish Fire Logs"

Happy Glamping.

Sorry about the sideways shot.

ps Old-Biscuit, Thanks, you are amazing! welcome back, and keep that sense of humour going.

Yeah, I have a diesel powered rig.... it's called an accelerator pedal.

Place your hand under 110*F temo water and determine if it is HOT or not


Salesman Switch, Hot Water Heater-----all good as far as I am concerned.
Too much nick-picking------------


I'm with the Biscuit! There are much more important subjects to be discussing here.

You sure it isn't the throttle pedal?? (Trick question - diesel engines don't have a throttle.)

Wow! Nine pages on a term I have taught myself to not use since I started my career in real estate,

I could understand that many pages if it was over a term many of us of a certain age and region of birth might still use (enough disclaimers?) - hose pipe. People from other regions might say hose or garden hose, there are probably many other variations.

Not even a gas tank.

I think the term fuel filter is common for both gas and diesel engines?
