Had a couple of these.



Made a couple of these.



A little welding and ended up with this.



Now my dilemma is, should I fill it with liquor or fuel.

I would fill it with a Liquor that your engine can burn. Best of both worlds. Drink it or burn it!

These are disposable sample gas bottles. These particular two I had contained 50ppm H2S with a balance of Nitrogen. Smelled like a big fart when I cut them open.

I wouldn't say I made this, but I did build it from parts. Just a desktop computer, but I think it looks kind of interesting.

I have a bunch of these too. left overs from multi-gas meter calibrations. Great idea. It may be time for me to re-purpose what I got.
