HELP, MY TRUCK WILL NOT START IN THE COLD WITH WHALE OIL IN THE TANK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

It's my daily driver, so I need it going right now.

I searched first, but found nothing that covered this issue.

I have a cold right now, so a fix from inside my livingroom would be best.

Anyone?

Have you checked the air pressure in the right rear inside tire? Look out your window, is the sun on the truck? If not you must wait until the chickens have crossed the road.

No! The site is fine!

Isn't that flippy phone the one you bought off ebay listed as a "communicator prop" from the original Star Trek series?

Eventually it will warm up and the ice will melt off your doors so you can all get outside again.

Found some reading material about whale oil and its use in the auto industry including military use. Thought I could find whale oil in an Early Deuce TM somewhere but.......my door still opens.

DH you might have spring or summer whale oil in the tank. Wait untill summer before trying to start the truck. It should fire right up on the first 80-90 degree day.

Are you sure it was not actually baby seal hair? It looks just like cat hair.

Seal fat makes good bio diesel.

Everything is an issue with the site. Even when other companies have incorrect entries in their databases to guide their security products, it's a site issue LOL.

Whale oil was originally used as Lamp oil--'till kerosine came along--coal-oil in between these two.
The refined whale oil was prized by watchmakers--(see the non-gumming-in previous post.)
The whale used it in a bulbous sack that could be shaped to focus their sound waves into a narrow beam.
