RE: Needing help, evacuated, battery dead

Can you start the engine, then start the generator from the 12V supplied by the engine alternator? Sounds like your house battery is bad or your converter is bad and not charging the house battery.

RE: Oil Change - synthetic oil

I had an AWD vehicle that I did a lot of mountain driving with. I always changed it with conventional oil at the severe duty change interval of 3800 miles. At 128,000 miles switched to synthetic. What I found was black gunk came out in the oil changes for about 4 changes at 4000 miles intervals. Clearly the heat had coked up some of the conventional oil.

RE: Subaru Ascent towing 4,400 pounds

Factory recommended oil on that turbo Ascent is 0W-20. Not sure I’d want that towing.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

This pandemic is in the first inning; the scientific understanding will take time; beware of premature declarations of “Mission Accomplished”. Here is a report of Nevada man that had a second covid infection with a different variant than the first time. This one put him in the hospital. https://arstechnica.com/science/2020/08/another-covid-19-reinfection-this-time-second-infection-was-more-severe/

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Hi Pianotuna, Yeah I’d like to cruise up to BC and check out some geology, specifically the Anahim Hot Spot, but that will obviously be delayed. How long will it take to eradicate Covid, what is a good model? Checked Polio, but it had a lab incident that put out some weakened virus that harmed a bunch of people which delayed the eradication ( Cutter Lab Incident, cautionary tale for Covid). https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse2.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.VNpNpMFqV9jB2pxKmf75DQHaJl%26pid%3DApi&f=1 height=480 width=320 What about Measles? (was previously eradicated in US in 2000) https://oup.silverchair-cdn.com/oup/backfile/Content_public/Journal/jid/189/Supplement_1/10.1086_377693/2/m_189-supplement_1-s1-fig001.gif?Expires=1601575644&Signature=kEPJ8VhxzIW0uDxwoWQlDmYVDBnE9Oa7oxwYbvlJYckQEaIswKDHoHcKhJayoZBrsWqSOWCd0nNSAUWRj9R4L7ec~Nu9Mu5X24gOZOyRkNRSvH3TcOOe-Tn3ELo4hu83xjLYQKOJH3u5HqPRe62c79P6cZMLoU5QhiXYngBb-lXCuSD7Mx8~VfX6s2gqpFxBJ8gQVDlXrMcquMVW-w~fk77Jlzu143JVgSYtXtT1O38OkbQBWJPG~StGY9qf0IBN9UU4ji2yYi~uzxwulAing2a~jrepPaOKvuJKsjdOriNiSymvIi1iJ72ZVtvpX-qhYDpGnq3-RD1N0ZAWqCxVgA__&Key-Pair-Id=APKAIE5G5CRDK6RD3PGA height=320 width=480 Smallpox: https://external-content.duckduckgo.com/iu/?u=https%3A%2F%2Ftse3.mm.bing.net%2Fth%3Fid%3DOIP.4jzfbzlLwD1RNWtLtAZROAAAAA%26pid%3DApi&f=1 height=480 width=480

RE: Oil Change - synthetic oil

What is the oil capacity? That is also a factor in how long the oil will last. My E450 has just a 6 quart oil capacity but a large oil cooler. I run Mobil 1 5W-20 EP. Changes every 4000 - 4400 miles and have done Blackstone oil analysis and get similar numbers to their average change interval of 4400 miles for that V10. At 4000 miles it had a TBN of 4.0 (total base number, measure of remaining additive package) which is well above the minimum that Blackstone recommends of 1.0. Presumably most of those V10s are trucks that are not always carrying loads. I run the EP since it might take up to 1.5 years for it to reach 4000+ miles.

RE: Sturgis 2020 great news!

South Dakota Covid test positivity rate has increased 50% since Sturgis. “ On Aug. 7, the opening day of the rally, South Dakota had roughly 9,000 COVID-19 cases, according to the health department. By Aug. 26, positive cases had risen to 11,500. The state's positivity rate also rose, from 6% for the 14 days before Aug. 7, to 9% for the 14 days before Aug. 26.” https://abcnews.go.com/US/multiple-states-report-covid-19-cases-linked-sturgis/story?id=72621900

Overall adult flu vaccination rates from CDC show 45% for 2019. If rate applied to covid would be insufficient to reach herd immunity. https://www.cdc.gov/flu/images/fluvaxview/2019/general_population/figure3.JPG height=320 width=480

South Dakota is the 10th state in the country in terms of number of new cases per capita in the last 2 weeks. 323 new cases today. https://siouxcityjournal.com/news/state-and-regional/south-dakota/south-dakota-confirms-323-new-cases-of-the-coronavirus/article_752c8ecc-eb7c-512e-a313-be5e952ab191.html

$16 Billion is the market size for the entire cold chain market, not -80C. Figure 3.

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Yes you need dry ice to keep anything frozen for any length of time. FedEx opened a new cold transport hub in 2016. “At 83,000 sq. ft. of capacity, it has space for frozen (-25 to -10°C), refrigerated (2–8°C) and controlled room-temperature (15–25°C) storage.” Likely not much of a market for -80C. https://pharmaceuticalcommerce.com/special-report/advancing-biopharma-cold-chain/

RE: 2019–20 CORONAVIRUS PANDEMIC POSTINGS

Even when a vaccine is available we all may not be home free. For example the Moderna and Pfizer vaccine candidates reportedly require low temperature storage and transportation, -4F for Moderna and -94F for Pfizer: https://www.marketwatch.com/story/moderna-and-pfizers-covid-19-vaccine-candidates-require-ultra-low-temperatures-raising-questions-about-storage-distribution-2020-08-27?mod=home-pageThat problem has been solved for decades. Companies (including mine) regularly ship perishable pharmaceuticals on cold packs or dry ice nationwide and internationally. -94F is -70C. This company says they can ship 240 hour pallets with -78C. What capability does your company provide? https://www.dryce-pharma.com/
