A person on ATS claims to have a 100mpg carb and no one is the least bit curious?
Last time I looked the gas prices are climbing out of site.
Would you be interested in buying one from him? I know I sure am.
I am intresed in this. Also when you have any type of equipment the key to making it last is prudent usage and also maintenance. Most people I have
seen never maintain anything...ever.
I have scrounged enoughtparts to keep my lawn mowers going for years just off the curb left overs from people who discard and purchase new ones every
two years or more. Wheels , gas tanks etc etc. My oldest lawnmower is over 12 years and still going. I do have a brand new one ..I just dont use it
With a lawn mower..most not having oil pumps but slingers..you just have to change the oil regularly and also air filters. Plugs too of course. Even
those with oil pumps and filters you still need to change the oil in them. Filters too.
My point is that there is lots you can do to make a piece of equipment last and last. The systems are founded on most people farming this labor and
thinking out to others or not doing it at all.
I have a moped with 29,000 miles on it. Mind you now it is pretty well worn out but I dont know many people who have that kind of milage out of a
moped. Most are in the 5,000 to 10,000 range when they are scrapped.
It is up to us to lean how to think outside of the box which passes for consumption rates and the knowlege to accompany this.
Most of this is not taught per se in books but learned from others who know how to think outside of the norm that passes for book knowlege.
Speaking for myself..I am intrested in any kind of outside the box knowlege and abilitys like this...which will benifit me for the long or short
run....not another company or buisness.
