This reminds me -- after doing my compression test, I had some spilled 
diesel on the pump & area since I forgot to block the fuel return from the 
pump (I did remove the solenoid wire when cranking, but it still spits out 
fuel). Anyway, after running the engine after to warm up & clear the air out, 
I noticed the pump housing got hot & started to vapourize the fuel even 
before the head did! I mean it was *hot* after only a few minutes of 
running from dead cold. 
Hagar, what do you mean by using ParoWax? The solid stuff? I'm a bit 
worried about using Canola etc in the winter, so I'll probably stick with my 
PowerService + 2 stroke blend for now (when I remember to add it).
