good stuff ... 'cept for the vapor explosion .
yeah ... i know of a similar situation ... a helluva mechanic , machinist , welder and blacksmith that i knew as a kid , died in a camper ...
he had a small charcoal grill (hibachi) that he brought inside to keep the critters out of it and for warmth .
his wife survived ... she woke up barely able to move and disoriented and managed to get to the door of the camper .
it was too late for mr. jungst .
yep , it is the stupid simple stuff that usually gets certain types .
went to the hangar in fosston early this morning ...
a pilot that owns the hangar in back of the 310 hangar wanted to get rid of a couple of 55 gallon drums of aviation oil .
seems he was running out of room , plus the oil is single weight not multi viscosity .
there is a barrel for winter and one for summer .
the stuff is going for about 6 bucks a quart ... non-synthetic .
sooo ... 55 X 4 X $6.00 X 2 = $2640.00
yeah , for that kind of money , the oil can be swapped out .
for a long time i ran diesel multi grade oil in my s-10 .
we changed the oil at generator powered transmitter sites as well as in the backup generators (once a year ... run or not) .
the powered sites were changed well in advance of getting loaded up ... still easily see through it .
we had to pay to get rid of it , so the chief engineer and i used it in our personal and service rigs as well as gave it to a few friends .
