SO what do them NA East coasters do in the winter with the blinking diesels? Run them while on the stands every two weeks or so?!?!?!?
Come now Camaron, I have to agree with fuzzy on this, youst worry WAY the blinking hell too much. I've got 5 diesels of different sorts and types, some sit for upwards of 6 months, run the heck out of em for a few days or a week or so, then they sit for a bit! Includes a dumptruck, bobcat, trackhoe, boat and pickup. Last two get run more than the others. Bobcat has all of about 1100 hrs since buying it in 99. What, 100 hrs a year? nothing but normal maintenance. Trackhoe has 1600, had 1100 when I bought it 7 yrs ago. Dumptruck, not sure on the hrs, it has 140K miles since I bought it in 92. Pickumup has 122K or there abouts, dash says over 4000 hrs in 6 yrs. Not sure on the hrs for the boat, it has not blinking temp guage, other than an idiot light/noise alarm, nor an hour meter, nor a tach, nor an anything but a key, start buttom, pull shut off switcharoo thingy.
So with that in mind.........I would suspect red diesel in Oz is like here, do not run it in over the road rigs, as no road tax'es have been charged, BIG fines here in states, normal greenish color is ok in either off road, ie boat or equal, and over the road rigs. Red stuff is just a dye, so in reality, it can run in any combustion type motor.....
Off my rant a roo! by the way, what is a stick in ozzy boomarangoo speak?!?!?!?!?
She drives me boat,
I drives me dinghy!
