I have a lease on 2019 Genesis G70 with just under 6000 miles on it. Last fill up was 5 days ago from a Mobil gas station in a heavily trafficked part of the city from almost empty to full with premium 93. Put ~100 miles on it since last fill up and all of a sudden after driving for miles the car lost power and died. Could restart but check engine light came on and OBD code readout from my creepy Metromile GPS tracker insurance thing said it was a cylinder misfire.
Towed to dealership yesterday, today they call and say what were you doing when it broke down. When I described my situation the mechanic said there is diesel in the gas tank that's why, we have to flush lines and clean it out at your expense and then see if anything else is damaged. I panicked and told him to hold on any labor. No one has driven or gassed up the car besides me and I sure as hell didn't put diesel in?!
The more research I do the more unlikely it sounds that diesel could be in the gas tank unless the gas stations gas was tainted? What other possibilities are there? What information if any should I arm myself with when I show up in person tomorrow? Anyone heard of anything like this?
I'm brand new to the SKS platform, so please forgive me. I just picked up a Chinese Type SKS at a show today, and it has a pretty good wobble in the top handguard. Guy selling it said it's normal, but asking around it seems that the whole gas cylinder/tube should be more snug than it is. I made sure the lever was pushed all the way down. Is this a big issue? Safe to shoot? Can I replace this part? If so, where can I get a replacement? Thanks in advance, I appreciate any help you can offer.
My buddy has the need to measure and monitor gas levels in a gas cylinder to ensure he has enough warning to change the tanks before the tank taps out. Ultimately having two tanks and a failover with a monitoring system would be ideal but for now I am just trying to monitor the one.
I found a couple of pressure monitors online but they are stupid expensive and really geared toward being out in remote areas (battery powered with cellular for data).
This is going to be in a home so I am thinking set up a MQTT broker and some sort of monitoring page on the LAN and he is good to go. If I were to make a solution I would go the ESP route.
My last resort is to monitor the physical weight of the tank, which I know is doable, and send alerts based off that.
I’ve had a look around reddit and the internet and can’t find a straight answer..hoping you all might be able to help.
I have a semi full gas cylinder for my sodastream (60l) that is leaking.
What I’m looking to know is what should I do with the cylinder? I’m in an apartment with low windows and dogs so can’t really open the windows. I can’t leave it outside as it’s 28 degrees C here...so I’m at a loss.
What would you recommend? Just leave it in a room to empty by itself?
There is a Sodastream bottle exchange place near me but it’s closed till Monday.
Any help would be awesome
I just got a used Herman Miller Aeron (Classic) and I bought a Office Oasis replacement gas cylinder and after installing it, it seems that the lowest height that I can set my chair to is now 19". For my height, the top of my chair should be at 17" for ergonomic reasons so it seems that that Office Oasis gas cylinder is just a bit too tall. Has anyone else had this issue? I'm wandering if either I installed it incorrectly or the Office Oasis gas replacement cylinder is just too tall. If that is the case, does anyone else have any other good aftermarket cylinder replacements?
Hello, I recently purchased a Herman Miller Caper chair from OfferUp for a low price. I found that the gas cylinder needs replaced. After taking apart part of the chair I've found that it seems to be impossible to remove part of the cylinder from the base. I've hammered away, used a socket for leverage, and pried part of it bending it inside the tube. Nothing has worked and in the process I think I've damaged the base. It looks like the chair was left outside and it oxidized and or rusted within the seat base. I've put about a can of WD-40 on it and it hasn't budged any.
My question; can I use any seat base on this model? Or any base offered by Herman Miller? I can't find any specific Caper model bases available for purchase. Mostly other more sought after models. I was thinking of purchasing a used cheap chair and removing the base and adding it to this chair but not sure if it would work?
I bought some WD40 Silicone Lubricant Spray and applied it to my Aeron Remastered after cleaning the old lubricant, however, it actually feels like there's more friction than before when going up or down.
What is the recommended grease for the gas cylinder / lift? I tried to search HM website but found nothing.
About 9 months ago I got a CMP .308 Garand and I’ve had zero issues with the rifle. Had it looked over by the gunsmith at the store I had the rifle shipped to and got the ok that everything looked good and safe to use on the range. Greased it up and have only been able to take it to the range a couple times but I’ve had next to no issues with it.
This past weekend I was out at a friends range and I had shot a couple clips through the rifle and had a round not go off and hiss loudly inside the chamber. So I waited a bit and ejected the round and found this. Didn’t think much of it since I’ve had a couple duds before but the next round immediately afterwards did the exact same thing. Same loud hissing noise that could be heard through my hearing protection. So I packed the Garand away for the day.
I’m pretty diligent about cleaning my Garand after every trip to the range, cleaning the barrel and chamber with a snake and chamber brush, wiping off any excess grease and reapplying where it’s needed, and cleaning the op rod. This time I noticed the op rod is much dirtier and the sealing surface is all carboned up. And the underside of the front handguard is significantly dirtier than usual.
Should I chalk this up to bad ammo or is the excessively dirty op rod and handguard signs of issues with the gas system on the rifle?
I have a chair, it's quite expensive for me, I want to disassemble it and send it to my new home office. The shop owner told me it can be disassembled.
If I detach the gas cylinder will the gas suddenly leak? and I can't use it again?
New to BBQing, looking forward to it. Got the grill assembled, I'm just missing the gas cylinder. Is it possible to buy it? Most places offer empty cylinders. Let's say I do have to buy an empty one, where do I fill it up from? Do I fill it up at that location, or someone specialized has to fill it up? I know Costco sells the tanks inside then we have to get them filled outside, anyone knows if there is an extra cost to filling them up at Costco?
I recently found a large gas cylinder in the basement of a friend. It was marked for nitrous oxide, and the people said it is around 30 years old and has never been touched. Is there any way that I can use this to store welding gas? I am aware that it will need to be hydro tested (last hydro test was April of 1996). Is it dangerous to have it since it is so old? How can I get it tested and can I use it to store shielding gas, or should it be recycled?
I have a Aeron I believe its a 2nd gen with the flap to adjust the height on the arms.
Occasionally when sitting the chair will just drop down again but mostly stays OK. I think I'm going to need to replace the cylinder. Is that the right diagnosis?
There is also a little bit of wabble in the chair.
Where in the UK can I get a genuine cylinder?
I have a Herman Miller Aeron Classic that I have owned for a little over 3 years now. Up until recently, I have had zero problems with this chair. However, over the last month, I notice that it will abruptly sink about a 1/2 inch when I am rotating/swiveling. This problem has persisted and become more and more common. Instead of it maybe happening once a day, it now happens several times a day and I have to constantly keep adjusting.
I have looked online and found many, many videos and threads about adjusting the set screw in the gas cylinder post, with an allen wrench. Specifically like the following video: https://youtu.be/9HZeH5J06Vs
My problem, however, is that the bottom of my Aeron Classic does not have a screw visible to me to simply adjust. The bottom of my chair has a mechanism in place of where that screw is, that works similar to how a bicycle brake cable might work. The cable runs directly in to it, releasing tension to adjust the chair up or down. I can't seem to find a single video or thread online with someone who has this same mechanism and how to tighten or loosen it.
Does anyone have any idea what I'm talking about? Any help is greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance!
