Hello Group and Goodbye Bad Diesel fuel
Well, Margaret Dawn is here!
I spent last weekend emptying the 25 gal tank of old diesel and replacing it with 140.00 worth of new stuff and added conditioner. I also hauled the tank out and cleaned it. Good tip if you ever have to do it -- after washing and trying to dry (I used a hair dryer for a while) swish out with methyl hydrate to get the last moisture. Anyways, you wouldn't believe the crud in the old tank after 13 years. Now I have clean, conditioned fuel and the engine is running better. Now to go sailing and leave the "auxiliary" on (hopefully) reliable standby.
ps Thanks to Marilyn for doing the research on our connectivity!
