Anybody got a steamcleaner

I am about to throw away 140 litres of red diesel it can't go through an engine as it's possibly contaminated but It's great for running a steamcleaner.

No charge and I'd probably deliver it within 10 miles for free

I have done that a few times so the diesel had most of the water removed

The last time sea water got into my diesel engine it came in through the exhaust and it cost me about a new Cat engine. That stuff is going nowhere near my engine!

Pete you are paying far too much for your fuel, I am getting some for Dyna Mo Humm in the next week or so would you like any Circa 30p a litre

I am going to offroad track this Sunday I might take it up there and offer it around
