I think I may still have a couple of them.

That's right - my brain was thinking 'Whip' as I typed.

The joke at the time was, turn it upside down and it stood for:

No Immediate Miracles....

My son, who operates a boat yard, is a fan of Yanmar diesel engines.

FYI, no fuel tax is required for equipment not operated on a road. So, fuel for equipment and vehicles solely for on-farm use, and vessels, are exempt.

I built a proforma budget up using $9 gas prices and driving 20k miles per year at 20mpg. Expensive, but with planning we can still "see the USA" via automobile or small RV. It's an incremental $6k/yr vs. $3 gas.

No doubt, we're going to see some sky high energy prices coming up and whether you can afford a lot of petro or not is up to you and your planning and your allocation priorities.

Oh yeah....... Had a 1980 VW Rabbit Diesel. 50+mpg on the highway. But, ya better put new glow plugs in every fall if you want to start with confidence in Chicago winter weather! I understand the technology is better now.

Funny I did that also but used 10 dollar a gallon gasoline and 30 mpg and 20K miles a year. I figured I would work teach part time an extra 30 days a year to pay the extra.
