Kind of a bummer...

Just used up the last of the oil that I had stockpiled today. The places that I got oil from went out of business within a month of each other. I think that this spring I will need to hunt down a couple more sources. At least I won't have to go collect oil in the cold this winter...

Too bad. Sometimes you can find oil in the most unlikely places. Lately I got some from a church fair. It was really clean. Don't give up. You will find some.
I am having trouble with my injector pump. It leaks fuel from the underside but not all the time. The other morning it leaked about 2 cups then stopped. I'm wondering if the 100% BD has caused the seals to start leaking. Funny it only happens occasionally. Ever hear anything like that? Will probably get a rebuilt and then purchase a timing meter. "Ka-ching"
Getting ready for the cold? I don't envy you. Last time I was there (Sturgis 2004) I stayed at Ellsworth AFB but it was nice and warm.
Hope you have happy holidays.
Tom

Yea we got a little oil, maybe 50 gallons from the Rally, and about half that from the Central States Fair. Think the only problems that I've had from Bio is the sock filters plugged up from crud which in turn took out the fuel pump...
