    Well, John, I've learned to NEVER be surprised about your accomplishments! I knew you were involved in the history of farming when we found antique John Miller implements at auctions. Now I know you were involved in the histroy of the space program! Is there anything you haven't tackled?[img]/w3tcompact/icons/tongue.gif[/img] I'm guessing that you were somehow involved in the first heart transplant![img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    Now, don't sell my buddy short! While it's true that he invented the internet, most people don't realize that he also invented the computer!! And he started it all with a coil of wire and some batteries in his garage when he was a kid!! [img]/w3tcompact/icons/shocked.gif[/img] Without John, we wouldn't even have TBN!! An article in the New York Times a few years ago called John, a modern day Thomas Edison!! And of course I agree!![img]/w3tcompact/icons/wink.gif[/img]

    We sold a used Kubota to a local airport this year. After refueling the tractor with jet fuel they called and complained of significant power loss after the tractors engine would warm up. They also told me that they had used Jet fuel in all of their diesel trucks, and had never noticed any problems. We ended up draining the tank and the problem went away. Hope that helps......
