Gave the road, the driveway, and my truck a diesel bath...

Forgot to close the drain valve for the fuel bowl. I don't know how many gallons I lost everywhere. Only ran it like two min before I noticed it, shut the truck down and closed it. Any problems this could of caused me now? It seems like its running normal now.

No damage, except for the damage to your wallet.

This is funny. Yea, you hurt nothing but the bank and the cement.

I kind of did something like this Saturday. I changed the batteries in the 6.0 last week. The old ones were still good, just old. So one went in a fox body and one went into a Fairlane. That being said, I needed 2 junk batteries to get my core charge back from Ford.

I went down to my Dads house to get to junk cores. Right after I went to the beer distrbutor. I decided to NOT open a beer till I got home. Good thing, someone pulled RIGHT INFRONT OF ME at a light. I didnt hit the little crap head in his Silverado however one of the battereies went flying. Smashed the back of my bed, all the acid leaked out and is now all over the road. I went back today, it looks horrible on the road.

The bed had no dammage (washed acid out and I have a spray in liner) and NO BEER was hurt durring this road staining.

I have used mo-gas to get stains up (not recommended lol) but that or just some cheap engine degreeser. That reminds me of the time I did the fuel filter and forgot to take the old o-ring out replaced with new one and therefore had Double o-rings lol, pulled it out of the bay, parked it put it in high idle was talking to my SSGT (it was dark) and I just see my truck pouring fluid down...I Freaked! Lost 3 gallons lol, but all was well, no issues!
