Good morning Irvin .
Here is a good article that Chris wrote.
I think the main decision is if one needs a work vehicle or a vehicle for personal transportation . If you choose a bigger heavier truck the hyway speed will be 10-15 mph less than a big motor small truck.
With my farming operation if I had to choose only one vehicle it would be the bigger truck because I seem to be working a lot more than running around
In seven years I have put about 40K miles on the work truck
My little dakota does good on the road . I have driven 800 miles in 16 hours . This includes fuel stops , stopping at rest stops , meals , pulling a small trailer and so on.
(Gary has added some used oil ( dripped into the firebox) to his system is that something that the Keith system would benefit from? thanks, ic )
In the last couple of weeks I have been experimenting with using some of my used oil in the gasifier . I pour about a gallon of oil on 100 pound of wood and let it soak in .
There are so many variables that it is hard to tell if I am getting more power or millage but sofar I am seeing no negatives and it seems to be the cleanest way to deal with the used oil.
It will be great getting to meet you at Argos.
