Re: My '96 Work truck...
Yup, I let the GP's stay on 30 seconds after the WTS light went out. I was glad it started, with no ether to give it a helping hand I was starting to wonder about the batteries holding up. It didn't smoke that much when it did start.
On the drive up I burned about 12 gallons of peanut oil and my Aux tank had 10 gallons of used motor oil in it along with the diesel, and using our Kroger card I got 35 gallons of fuel for a buck a gallon. I purchased diesel before leaving here in Houston for 1.99 a gal.
I saw off road diesel for 1.35 gal! it was tempting.
