Leftover Oil

3 posts in this topic

I will have about a 1/2 gallon of HP Injector Oil remaining in the reservior at the end of the season. Do I have to get it out of there, or can I leave it and treat it with something?

Thanks

Just leave it in the reservior. No need to treat it, it doesn't degrade like formulated gas.

No problem to leave it. Do not add anything to it.

Actually it would be better to fill the tank - there is less chance of condensation with a full tank than an empty one (that applies gasoline or oil.)

In addition, with the gas tank, treat your last tank(s) of gas with gasoline stabilizer. For storage a stabilizer is better than a general purpose additive - ie Seafoam is general purpose that helps with preserving, Stabil is designed for storage. Also AMSOIL has a stabilizer: Gasoline Stabilizer (plain direct name, but it gives up to 18 months storage protection. With any gasoline for storage, you need to have it in the gasoline before hand and run the treated gasoline through the engine and carburetor or injection system for full protection.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!

      Was at Carnilian a few days ago....looked like the front end of a truck went through just in front of the access.
