  1. up here you want as much smoke as possible in the summer to keep the midgies away
  2. I was working on the construction of a "green energy" wind farm a couple of years ago and I was ordering 20,000 litres every day and sometimes more i wonder how much extra that would cost if it was white diesel and how long to become carbon neutral Also i cant see how there can be a difference in performance between red and white when I was young the farm diesel came in a wagon full of white diesel and the driver added a measured amount of red dye into the tank after it was filled
  3. newish house here has small round sockets around the wall for small table lamps and are linked to a second light switch by the door so you can walk in and switch on all the wee lights with one switch
