Biodiesel Coming Soon

Well, 250 gallons of it, anyway. The ex-hub converted his furnace recently to propane and had a bunch of diesel to get rid of. We worked out an arrangement and spent an afternoon pumping it into 55 gallon drums. Thank God for Floyd! His barrel pump was the coolest device for moving the fuel ~ just hook up an air compressor and go. It was a bit cold standing around outside for a couple of hours, but I’m glad I’ll be replacing some of the fuel I use to heat the boat anyway.

We’ll move it onto the boat in the next few days, weather-depending. That should be slightly more interesting, but I think we’ve got the system figured out.

And no, the hat doesn’t leave my head for most of the winter. Looking at the past several photos, it does seem to be a permanent fixture, doesn’t it? And yes, I do smell like diesel now, thank you. Eau de Boat Lady. Surely that’s a turn-on for some guy?
