Link Problem and New Creation




Bob,

I wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole! I can't think of a better way to
buy trouble. I guess I have dealt with too many auto and truck gas tanks
that got fouled with substances or rust. A fleck of rust of infinitesimal
size can foul a fuel pump or carburetor in a critical situation and you lose
your engine. No thanks!

Chuck
