You mean pour it back in the engine?
Have to confess the other day I needed to scrape the cows after they had been housed with the little 35 year old Kramer which has a Deutz 2 cyl engine.

Dipped the oil and nothing on the stick (it does leak a bit:rolleyes:) so intending to give it an oil change I got half a gallon from the waste oil drum.

Never done it before but can’t see it doing much harm in the short term.:lurking:

I‘m pretty hot with the tractor oils,too damn expensive to get wrong.

Can't believe it. This year will be the first time in 30 yrs that I haven't contributed in some form to guy fawkes night bonfire. Landlady of the field has forebade it on the grounds of corona. Absolutely no idea what to do with old oil and dirty red. Gutted.

Never mind that,what about the bale wrap?:unsure::lurking:
Took mine down to the recycling centre yesterday. Not too much (2 dumpy bags very full and well packed and all dry), plus a bag of cement and feed sacks and a load of fertilizer sacks. Weighed me in and out. 200 kilos of plastic so £40

Waste oil heater in the workshop. Waste oil boiler in the house. Free heat all year round. Use to make and sell a lot of them before the new licence fee came in. Now only sell them to main dealers as they are the only ones who warrant the cost.

Written by Charlotte Cunningham

AHDB has issued a yellow rust watch list to help flag winter wheat varieties most likely to perform out of line with the disease ratings published in the Recommended Lists. Charlotte Cunningham reports. The watch list, which orders varieties based on yellow rust levels from the three worst RL trials (for each variety), can help identify those most likely to benefit from closer monitoring, says the levy board. It follows the development of a new rating calculation approach that better reflects the diverse and dynamic nature of the UK’s rust populations, announced at the launch of the online edition of the RL 2021/22 in Dec.
