About 20 years ago I ran out of gas in an 86 Ford p/u and dumped a quart
of either vac pump or ref oil in it and made it about 3 miles -- to
within a short walk of a gas station. I heard that my grandfather had a
tractor that would start on gas, and then switch to kero when warm, I
think in the mid/late 30's when kero was cheaper.
Tony-- I just missed out on a 69 Olds 98 Friday. The was one on EBay
with 67K miles right here in SA-15 miles away from me. I had to go out
of town, and it was at $2275 when I left with about an hour left on it.
I figure it would go WAY up--prob $4K or so-- at the end, and left
without bidding. I was sick when I later saw it sold for $2450. Oh well!
Really didn't need it, but those were sure gorgeous cars and it sure
would have l looked nice in my driveway. Larry
