If you have a diesel pusher, diesel pickup, semi, and want to save some fuel money, join TSD Logistics Open Roads

Idea for saving fuel in Shipshewana?

Even tried a thin wall chain saw plug wrench! If I was at home Iíd grind down one of the plug sockets till it fit, but no grinder here!

Any ideas?

I have a set of sockets that allow an extended bolt to extrude up through the manufactured hole on the socket and ratchet. Bring the boat here and you can use it, then we can go fishing. They are called "Bolt-Through Sockets."

Up date news!

Plugs changed, spark good, still got a problem!

When you live a good life things just fall together. Looking more like a fuel/carburetor problem now and just by luck a retired foreign car mechanic comes up. In a few minutes time he had the jets cleared on the problem cylinder and went with me on a test run around the lake. Life is good! And then you die!

Probably needs to be completely drained from season to season. Or some type of additive to keep it from gumming things up. Fuel is real crap these days. A lot of the FL gas stations have non-ethanol gas, specifically to fill boat engines and keep them running with *real* gas.

The mechanic suspected trash in jet more than a gum up problem since it affected only one of the three jets in one of the three carburetors but added I should add a gas treatment to my tank to help keep them cleared out. The ethanol free gas was more to prevent breakdown of the rubber components and was not supposed to be an issue in this model motor. I generally empty the tank at end of summer anyway just to keep it from getting old.

Was amazed how by just listening to the motor, no special equipment he knew where the problem was. He wouldnít even let me pay him or buy him lunch.

At the end of season, I donít empty my tank, but I do shut off the gas and run the engine until it shuts down. That way, there is NO gas in the carb to gum things up

R U an RV Mutant too?

We filled the RV tank with about 100 gallons.
PA would have charged about $6.50 per gallon. We filled in Maryland for $5.40.
So, PA lost us for their $1.10 / gallon more big price!
Yup! An extra $110 is truly nifty!!

I have to pay more than that for my fuel oil to heat the house!!!

Almost to the point where it'll be cheaper to drive to another state with a big oil tank, fill it up and bring it back home.

Have you given any thought to the TSD Open Roads program? I saved $42.42 last time I filled up with 57 gallons. Great program.

I wish there was a similar program for "gas".
