A side note for anyone who has CGs Frybrid still. A 50 gallon hot water heater doesn't really hold 50 gallons....more like 48...or maybe it still had 2 gallons in it. And when you over fill one, that little air filter on the top will almost resemble a showerhead. If you overfill it, you will want to be alone so the constant string of cursing (I invented a few new words too) isn't offensive to anyone and then you'll need lots of towels.
Okay, after you stop rolling in the floor laughing, bring on the jokes....they are at my expense.

Why do you think I put a sight tube in? I have yet to find the filter from my first still, I do know what a stream of VO 8' high looks like though and I know where to buy a 3' squeegy and 10 bags of cat litter on a Saturday. I can also tell you that I have yet found a way to get VO out of clothing and am lucky that my taste is more Levi and T shirt than Armani and Versachi

Well, I was pumping in new oil and it's hard to see it in the sight tube. Besides, I bought 50 gallons and assumed it would all go into my 50 gallon water heater. WRONG! I'll not do that again.
It looks like I need to use some "kills" on the walls and ceiling this weekend and repaint the garage.
geezzz.

John- NOW you can consider yourself initiated. Simply having a system doesn't count, you have to have made a mess of everything within 100 square feet of you, p'sd off the wife, and have the neighbors call you in for a meth lab . As for painting the walls, you may be better off doing Wallpaper. Not sure there is another substance known to man that is as sticky as half dried VO......

John? You mean after you slept in my house, ate from my table and took half my savings account (granted we didn't go see Brokeback Mountain together) and you don't remember my name? I'm hurt!

Yeah well, I new there would come a day (didn't think it would be yesturday) that I would say I wished I had built this system in the shed rather than the garage. I took a good hot shower last night and I still smell like I just finished the day shift at McDonalds.

When I first started with the still I had taken the lid off my x100 filter to do something or another and sit the lid on top of the filter without screwing it on. When I sat the lid there I thought to myself that I should not do that because I may forget and turn the pump back on--sure enough--I finished whatever I was doing and turned the pump back on. The oil did not shoot out, but it did pour out ALOT. Then to make matters worse I turned off the pump, but that damn rubber cover over the switch of the pump casued the switch to come back on. Needless to say that rubber cover on the pump is no longer with me. I just put cat liter everywhere and went inside to watch TV. I was done playing that day.

Well I can report that KILLZ does in fact prime the walls fine after showering them with VO. I painted the walls with it and all the stains are hidden and the smell ov VO has been contained it looks like. Tomorrow I will paint the walls with the regular wall paint and no one will no the difference... except yall...shhhh....don't tell.

It looks like I averaged about 16 mpg on oil, I normally get 18 +/- on dino. I'm not complaining, just wondering about the numbers.
