    Flashpoint vs. oil/fuel dilution

    If you started out with an oil with a flashpoint of, say, 424*F and you dilute it with gasoline that has a flashpoint of -49.9*F is the %dilution to flashpoint a linear relation? Are there tables/graphs for these properties? I understand that some oil analyses use the %fuel dilution to...

    Who carries Low-Tox or Sierra antifreeze?

    I bought a 1996 Saturn SL-2 with the classic hairline crack in the plastic part of the radiator. Bought a new radiator and plan on going to a propylene glycol coolant when I change radiators. Searched at AutoZone, Advanced Auto, NAPA and even Walmart, didn't find any.

    PFM to start truck

    My truck had the fuel line replaced in September, since then I've had to crank it over forever to start, but I've learned to turn the key to run (without engaging the starter) and just sit there or brush the snow off the truck. Then, after several minutes, I hear a faint clicking noise (not...

    Anyone seen anything like this? It would be able to take advantage of the availability or lower price of either fuel.

    Turbine Control Fluids

    At work we went to digital steam turbine controls and switched from Akso Nobel/Supresta's EHC to EHC-S (not much of a change)as the control fluid. I'd hope they could go to some kind of polyol or something less nasty than organic phosphates, but I'm on the waste drum sampling and drum wrestling...

    Did you get any of your mutual fund's "settlement" with the SEC that's supposed to be returned to the shareholders? InvescoAIM (they changed their name again) "agreed" to return $375 million dollars to their shareholders. Well, three and a half years later they haven't returned one cent...
