For the record It doesn't bother me one bit, but I hear others complain. I think he throws in a gallon of waste oil every time he shakes it down but that is my assumption. You can't see the road sometimes.

If you have ever been in Ireland in the winter when they are burning peat in the open hearth, you will think you're in the dump where they are burning garbage. Boy does that stuff stink. Peat is on the way to becoming soft coal.
