Thank's guy's for checking up on me, I have some health issues that came up real quick on me and i was flown to Pittsburgh,Pa kinda fast, Then i got to go to California for a week, Got diesel fuel in my blood stream. At the time i didn't think it was a big deal well i am here to tell you it is a big deal. Start's to shut down certian thing's. So be careful when working on diesel engines :!: Only 4 place's in the United States that can handle issues like this. I am doing good now try to go back to work next week. Thank's again guy's for the concern, We are truly a family here.

Glad you're ok. Sounds like it could have been really bad.

Glad to hear you are OK brother, kinda had us all spooked there for a bit! I had one of my techs do the same thing about 3 years back, spent 6 weeks in the hospital, not a good deal.
Now that you are better, time to get you this bumper sticker... :lol:

Hands, splashes on the arms, fumes in-haled...not saying the 1st time you spill some on you at the gas station your Hit but for Diesel mechanics that work with this stuff each day its serious business...Most Diesel Mechanics I know use a certain type glove and long sleeves etc...

also when I owned the VP fuel dealership I sold Drums of M-1 methanol to the local university that was making Bio-Diesel..
