running out of diesel with the petrol station in plain view was priceless! In retrospect, I should have thrown in a gallon or two of gasoline before we left the playa. A little gas in your diesel is ok if you have a mechinacally injected engine. My diesel mercedes benz manual actually recommends up ...

Lapeer... any idea if the spot you were on was last year's playa or this year's? This year's event is being staged a mile and a half northeast of last year's site, I believe. ~Trilo~ I was rather disoriented as i entered the playa at nite, and without at least 20,000 other people there, it made it ...

the bus actually runs on used waste veggie oil, which is very different than biodoesel. Waste veggie oil or WVO is simply that.

I agree that the event is open to everyone, but the question of the lack of black people is interesting. I don't even have a theory on why there are so few on the playa. We talked about this at our theme camp during the event.

by far the best battery investment you can make for this type of application is deep cycle golf cart batteries. They're about 100 bucks each, and you need to buy them in pairs (since they're only 6v each) They store much more power than standard "deep cycle" or RV batteries and can be charged/discha...
