    Ive been out of action for the last week and a half, surgery.

    Finally feeling human again, last few days recooperating, in the pattern shed, not much done, but some. Made a core for the reed cavity, now to make a core box from this male shape. Save having to cast it solid and machining it all out, this is much easier.
    Background pattern is that Subaru E81 four port head, finally making a start on that as well. Always run two pattern projects at the same time then there is no waiting around for glue or bondi to set, while one sets you are working on the other, back and forth.

    mmm, Kawasaki green.

    My happy place, the pattern shed.

    My standard four sides, a top and a bottom type CO2 sand mold.

    Reed sand core, x 2 just in case I drop one.
    Because my furnace runs on E85 and Gull the barstards have stopped selling it, Ill have take these sand molds to town and get the local guys to pour them.
    I see I can get ethanol by the 210 L drum again, I'll have to go that way for the future. I need E85 / E90 for my motorcycles anyway.

    Gull used its stocks of ethanol to use as hand sanitizer.

    NO LONGER AVAILABLE
    In March 2020, Gull released a total of 340,000 litres of ethanol from its stocks to assist in the production of hand sanitiser to meet the urgent demand for healthcare services, due to the overwhelming shortage brought on by COVID-19. It brought us great joy to see hand sanitiser back on the shelves in the weeks to follow.

    In conjunction with the above taking place, our primary ethanol supplier Fonterra notified us in earlier in 2020 that local drought was limiting their production, which therefore affected our ability to blend. We have also most recently been importing ethanol, but this is a drawn-out process and not a viable long-term option. With limited local supply and imports we can only obtain enough ethanol to support one fuel grade and we will continue to blend Gull Force 10 (E10), which remains available at most Gull North Island sites for the foreseeable future. The means the permanent withdrawal of Force Pro from retail sites and sales to our third-party suppliers. There are no plans for Gull to stock Gull Force Pro/E85 again in the future.

    We thank all Gull Force Pro enthusiasts for your loyalty and support over the past years of this biofuel. We have loved seeing you run your beasts on the good stuff and have thoroughly enjoyed witnessing communities of motorsport out on the track and gravel, so devoted to their hobbies and passion projects.

    The Autostore, suppliers of Gull Force Pro drums in the past, will endeavour to blend their own E85 moving forward, pending ethanol supplies. Please make direct contact with them regarding any drum enquiries. Please note, the Autostore will not be selling Gull Force Pro – they will independently blend their own E85 fuel.

    For any tuning enquiries, please contact Carl and Hans at E & H Motors, who specialise in re-tuning and high-quality performance car services.
    i have seen it advertised for $3 a liter odd. so well cheaper than Meths i guess.

    They dont answer their phone, Ive left several massages.

    No I'll just go back to what I used to do, get by the 210L drum from the people Fontera supply to, so nearly direct.

    Funny thing, Gull told me in early 2019 they were considering abandoning E85, so all this above talk about shortages, rubbish I think. Aparently too expensive to maintain and upkeep the supply chain. I was told, anyway who cares now.
