Driving a Truck with a tank is totally different than driving the family car. Add in wet slippery roads after a light rain and you can wreak real easy. A lead foot is not the way to drive a tank truck. Drive it like a Grandfather would.


it is one thing to do a off label applications. It is total stupidity to post it on the world wide web and expect people to approve.
