So, when your husband mentions briefly while running out the door to work " the tractor probably needs fuel" , put fuel in immediately. Don't assume you can do chores then fill it before parking back in the heated shop! And in all honesty, there's no fuel gauge, so you have to climb up on tractor and put a stick into the tank to check levels. So, due to my laziness, I ran out of fuel. That's not something you really want to do with a Diesel engine, especially when your husband (mechanic) is on the road. Thankfully our neighbour and friend came to my rescue. After 3 hours of bleeding lines, priming, dealing with dead batteries and ice in the fuel, and some ether, they got the old girl going again. I'm so grateful for good friends. Thanks Art and Bert!
