How did the coffee taste and are you opening a coffee shop now?

You could call your coffee 951 or turbo brew.......

Coffee gets rid of gasoline smell too I used it on my backback when snowmobile fuel spilled on it back country skiing.

Good find I see your wife is as understanding as mine

I'm actually in the middle of divorce proceedings right now... so apparently not nearly as understanding as some!

Ugh, that's awful JKW... I've got my 1yr anniversary today.

I think I asked once about using the tub (living in an apartment). I was told 'No, I take baths in there!' Oh well. I'll make sure to get a parts washer when we buy a house.

After refilling with coolant the tank was clearly cleaner. How much was the coffee grounds and just going like crazy with detergents, hard to say. I'm sure the coffee helped some.

Hey John – when your turbo project gets back together I will help you out with the right hoses and hose clamps….there are some real strange things going on in the picture!

I wish my tank was that good looking. I can't even tell where my coolant level is.
