I imported a real Lister CS Startomatic and was restoring it, but it had been used on a sheep farm in Scotland and well I got really sick off it.

John who posts here and at the Micro site, was selling Clones complete so I traded to get me up and running.  We had just had a power outage and our basement flooded...wife on war path... had to do something quick, John helped me out...

Ive been happy with this set up, it works well, never a problem,

I just converted from oil to propane, in my house and garage.

There was fuel in the bottom of the two tanks, and one was red tagged fro rust - it was only 15 years old but the insurnace and enviromental police have gone nuts...which caused me to switch


The oil that came out had a bit of crude and rust in it.   I have transfered it to a 45 Gallon white plastic chemical barrel, and I suspect that I have also some water in the mix.

The oil fills the 45 gallon barrel to 1/2 way.   So whats the best way to clean it up and store it?

Was goin to let it sit for the winter in my heated garage and let it settle then hand pump out the good stuff and run it through a filter or two or three.  then mix it with regular diesel to burn in my generator... I have about a weeks worth of reserve right now. 

Any other suggestions or products you guys suggest?

My wife thought I was crazy to buy the roid.  Cheaper on Walmart Online

My neighbors on his third Walmart Generator

My roid starts up and is connected to power the whole house... including the hot tub

Nothing better that having to turn lights on to give the roid a good work out, while all about sit in the dark and cold.

Mine sits in my detached garage and we can barley hear it... but everyone in our little hamlet can see its working... go to the light!!!!

Well its snowed today...bbbrrrrrrrr

So Im out to the listeroid to check on some stuff.
1.  Check on Fuel
2.  Check on Fuel Filter
3.  Check on Oil, and prepare to change for the season.

I have some concerns about the starter... he's getting older, so will have to check if he can still spin it up LOL

bring on the power failures
