back to Y2K fuel,,,and coal

Never emptied my Y2K tanks so now I'm burning 99c fuel with 2.62 fuel. Love those diesels!!

As a real estate appraiser, appraise lots of homes today where the owners of oil furnaces are thinking about switching to anthracite coal, which is most plentiful here in NE/NC Pa. fuel oil at over 2.00 a gal is just too much for many. I am probably going to see a great deal of bucket a day stoves too...

real engines don't have spark plugs

RE: back to Y2K fuel,,,and coal

We looked at a house placed recently on the market where one of the selling points was that they had both gas and oil burning furnaces. I remember as a kid the stench of that stuff in the tanks that took up a good portion of the basement......Who'da thunk it would be back in vogue?

Personal pebble reactors are the answer. No pollution and plenty of power.
