Greetings from Commerce Township, Michigan

Hello members, I'm obviously a newbie here, but no stranger to MB's, as my first was a '68 220D I bought back in 1974 when the first oil embargos started and I needed economical transportation, commuting 250 miles one-way to college. Gasoline shot upwards from about $.49/gal to about a buck, and I found a friend who pumped me a full tank of Diesel (yes, capitalize that, it's named after the inventor), for about $.29/gal every weekend I returned home. Well, after driving a V10 F-350 gas guzzler the summer of '08 when gas shot up past 4 bucks a gallon, I found an '85 300SD for about $600 and it has been my daily ever since. Runs great and getting about 30 mpg. Have a couple other MB's cycling through the mix also, and working on these myself, that's why I'm here. Looking forward to sharing any info I can, and appreciate the opportunity of counsel from you veterans on this site. Thanks, and best regards!
