Fuel oil

11 posts in this topic

I've got approx. 40-50 gallons of fuel oil. It may have some sediment in it. If you want it and you've got a way to haul it, shoot me an email. paulsenjna@aol.com

I have a friend that has a heater that burns old engine oil that he uses to heat his auto mechanics garage. He's in Hopkins and I live close to you and I could haul it for him. What kind of containers are we talking about? If I can get it into my trailer, consider it gone.

5 gallon buckets with lids would probably be your best bet.I don't think you want anything larger than that. Whatever containers you've got, just make sure they have lids so it doesn't slop all over your trailer!

Not sure if it's dyed. It's kind of a dark red in color, but isn't that its natural appearance?

If it is red in color it is the Dyed version, which means Off Road use, such as fuel oil stoves, and such. A little cheaper in price too, I do believe. What is it being stored in now, and do you know how old it is.

Yes it would be used for a fuel oil stove, heating your house, etc. Some of it is in 5 gal. buckets right now. Not sure on the age though...sorry!

Hey Sarge, As soon as I can get the containers together, I can pick it upif its still available. I'm off from work the next two days, so maybe I can do it then. I'll e-mail you and get the address. I must live fairly close to you. Thanks.

Sounds good! I'm guessing you'll need about 7 5gal. buckets with lids if that's what you plan on using. I'll look for your email later on.

    • Oh yeah.  I keep forgetting about all that modern computer stuff in cars.   So the computer would notice the tranny didn't shift all the way down as the car stopped?     There goes that theory.    And why only after a couple hours of driving?   Some sort of overheating of the transmission fluid?  cooler plugged in the flush process?    Here is a question for Carpmaster..... Is it different in the summer vrs winter?   Like you only have to drive 50 miles in summer and 200 in winter?   You guys that actually know can feel free to ignore my suggestions if you don't want to waste time answering.  
    • leech, it does sound like an odd concocktion.  but you gotta try it.  225 for 2 hrs, helps if u use thin bacon.

    • Sorry, I thought the model was listed on the title of my question.  Anyway, Garmin 53dv EchoMap.  This one has downview, but is chirpless.  Seems like nice unit, tough.  Just wondered about those 2 wires.  Thanks.
    • should trigger a check engine light....
    • OK, just from what I am reading and never having been to mechanic school.... Is it possible that when the car comes to a stop that the transmission doesn't, for reasons unknown, downshift to first but stays in a higher gear?  Then when starting out after a few seconds it does downshift to first with a jolt?  Being in too high a gear would account for the slow acceleration and the downshift would be the jolt.  Staying in too high a gear would make a shudder maybe. It did in my old stick shifts .
    • Do you know the name of the guy, CigarGuy?  I'm guessing the answer is "Yes", but I've had a couple of beers.
    • seeing I will not have a bonus tag the does are safe at Ripley but a buck will need to be wall hanger before I shoot 
    • You did not identify the model of your Garmin  sorta important when wiring. If your Garmin is a Striker, than the other two wires brown and blue are not used. Also note the date on the install instructions. The ones dated before March 2016 did not include the wiring information.   This site might have some answer. http://www.gpscity.com/questions?qid=56118
