PROPER STORAGE SAVES FARM GASOLINE SUPPLY Proper farm storage will save gasoline just as a good roof will save com and hay. Byron Bondurant, extension agricultural engineer, says that shading your outside storage tank with a sunshade or tree will cut down evaporation loss. Loss from evaporation through the vent can run as high as 10 percent in a month if the tempera ture in the tank rises in the hot summer sun. The tractor will be harder to start when you use the gasoline that's left. Part of the gasoline evaporates, and what's! left has A higher gum content that may cause sticky valves. Don't put your gasoline storage tank in a building, Bondurant says, That will void your fire insurance policy and increase the possibility of fire. Keep a storage tank at least 15 feet away from any build Ask a gasoline service man about using a pressure valve on the vent to reduce evaporation loss. Such valves allow the pres sure to build up to 2 or 3 pounds ing. per square inch before they lease the pressure, it Tilt your tank a little so "that water and sediment can collect in the end opposite the gasoline out let. Drain out the accumulation at lease once a year. j_ T7 - T ,^ Tm n/A T T\ T rmr KKN 1 COUNTY 4-H CONTESTS Talent and Public Speaking Contests May 26 at Cap itol Grange LIST WINNERS The Kent County 4-H Talent and Public Speaking Contest was held on Wednesday evening, May 26, at the Capitol Grange.
