Walk in the dark
My van's been having issues due to a load of crappy diesel fuel. I thought the problem fixed as I went all the way from northern NH to Boston and back without any issues.
I was wrong.
The universe had a good laugh at my expense as the van died a little over 2 miles from my house. I tried to clear the problem but with no luck. Whatever clogged the line somehow made it past my transfer valve. No matter which tank I used it would feed into a plugged line.
Just to make things more interesting, the van died in the middle of a cell phone dead zone.
My lovely wife stayed with the van while I had a pleasant two mile walk in the dark to fetch her car.
At least it's off the road in a parking area where I'll be able to work on it. The job should go a lot better in the light of day.
At least it didn't die in Boston. That could have been nasty.
