I'm continuing to use my '50 as my daily at the moment,still generating lots of smiles and thumbs up as I go.
While visiting a customer to discuss a job yesterday I was gifted 25 gallons of gas.
They had drained a customers car who had inadvertantly filled their diesel car with it! (A common problem it seems).
Thankfully their tank was virtually dry when they filled up so the diesel contamination is minimal.
The 25 gallons was more than enough to dilute what was left in the tank and won't cause me any problems,and at roughly $10 a gallon here,every little helps.....
I'd been driving it like a maiden Aunt to try and squeeze every mile out a gallon but threw caution to the wind when a kid in a Mitsubishi EVO blipped past me on the way home,out of curiosity I stuck my foot in to see what happened,he was shocked to see a big old Chevy grill looming up in his rear view.
I don't think he expected a ratty looking 64 year old truck to be so fast,in fact neither was I!
