    The flange, or pins, or whatever, on that fuel cap was not quite long enough to stay in the opening. Every time I opened the cap and let it hang, it would fall off. So, I took it off and placed it on the side door step. I was at a Walmart fuel stop and some old dude in a motor home as rushing me. When I left, I just forgot to put it back on. By the time I remembered it, I was about 5 miles down the road. No way I was going back.

    This pig was headed to the pen.

    Marty, I bought a new locking diesel cap, it had a short retainer on it so i took the retainer off of the factory cap and replaced the one on the locking cap with it. :lol:

    My "factory" cap is without a pin. It looks like a pvc cap.

    I've about stopped doing any encap jobs. I've had to go back on way too many to be able to guarantee them. HWE works and does better for wicking. It's all a scam in my opinion. Only time it's worth a beans is if you can get them on a routine....and it aint gonna happen in my woods. Money is better spent on a once a year HWE or every other year for some.

    You'd just drink most of the fortune away.

    And shop at Walmart with the rest.

    Nothing wrong with rednecks.

    vlm crap

    after knowing Marty for years I can't see why he has strayed from VLM. VLM has turned my commerical business into a cash cow. We have dozens of accounts that have us clean monthly and quarterly with vlm and if we had to hwe it would be a nightmare. Our proffits are higher and results are better.I'm glad he has his V but I wouldn't sell all the vlm tools yet.

    I didn't mean to give the impression I had totally given up on vlm, David. I still use it in commercial, where appropriate. I have simply stopped trying to get it to work for me in residential.

    No I'm not the method is limited as can be. The spots go away when I do it but a few weeks later they are back so it's the method. I HWE them and they stay gone Encap is all smoke and mirrors, the biggest limitation is that you can't flush the crap out. When you move furniture soiled areas where the carpet is a very light brown due to dirt build up (you can only tell next to a clean area).... don't go away and you can tell clean from dirty for sure after encaping, yeah it looks better than when you start but it's still there. Like I said if you can get the customer on a plan or are in the business often enough it will manage appearance but for my area it's not real functional. I say it's equal to a Stanley Steamer hack job but not equal to a good HWE job. Now I may not be the encap god and someone may be able to do better than me. I just don't see it personally. Scrub some polymers in a floor and hope it makes all the dirt vacuum out.....it just don't happen but on lightly soiled and heavily maintaned carpet which there is very little of that in my woods.

    Don't blame the method. It works well in those circumstance where it was originally intended. It's the fault of Rick Gelinas, John Guerkink and their ban of barking ankle biters. In their efforts to sell us their system, they've promoted the method far beyond it's limitations. The crows have now come home to roost.

    Kudos to folks like Whittaker and VacAway who have remained focused regarding it's true abilities over the years.
