I knew a fella that had a home-made hot air-powered legpuller. Wasn't cost effective running around from garage to garage and collecting used summer air, so he rented a tanker and headed to the state legislature. Showed up after breakfast and the tank was full by lunch. That tank would last almost all year, depending on the job. The old, crusty legs usually took a bit of hot air to pull. Those newer legs that hadn't been around much were pretty easy. Some didn't need any air at all.

ROTFL! I can't believe one of the best Southern service-station scams perpetrated on yankees for near a century has shown up here on the diesel forums! LOL! I've gotta share this with my mechanic buddies...

OK, but at least pull a sample every 10,000 miles and send it out to get tested. Just in case the additive package starts to run low.
