    Wow. Talk about preconceived notions. They drink iced mocha lattes.

    Needless to say, I have a natural gas detector on every floor and the attic (it is lighter than air) now.
    Natural gas is used extensively in many parts of Canada. Up here they add an odourant chemical called mercaptan. Powerful and smells awful, even in minute traces.
    I would have thought that would be standard everywhere. That's the warning ....assuming you don't have covid or blocked sinuses
    Most houses around here with combustible fuel heat sources have carbon monoxide detectors, but very rare to have a natural gas detector.
    Something to look in to.

    We found a natural gas leak in my house during the inspection right before we bought it.

    How was it discovered? The smell.

    I'm not buying the need for a natural gas detector, assuming the supplier isn't skimping out on the additives.

    Two of us were living there, didn't smell a thing. Heck, neither did the plumber.

    Kind of wild story. My builders hard wired and installed CO2 detectors, but never plugged them in. So they were in the ceilings and hard wired and I never thought anything of it. Plumber came to check the furnice and was like... ughh... I found your problem.

    But hey, check out what the tech guys did at my office when they serviced/updated my internet!

    LOL! It's hard to find good help these days.

    Unless you do a lot of heavy breathing or are stacking decaying bodies up in the basement, your builders might have done better by installing the "more useful" CO detector.

    I'm not saying to lie about track use, but don't make it a giant red flag. I would assume someone tracked the shit out of this car. Most people who track a car once a blue moon don't get them corner weighted, and install 5pt harnesses, aux coolers and tow hooks lol.

    I worry my suspension will make people think my car was tracked a lot.
    I did track that thing a few times. Initially I bought the harness because I was convinced that the car came with it, and when I realized that it did not, I had to get one
    When I put it up for auction, I didn't have anything to hide and honestly, it's an ACR, it ought to see the track.

    Anyway, I would have done whoever bought the car a disservice if I had removed all those things and pretended that I didn't track it. You can tell pretty easily anyway, so might as well be honest.
    Hopefully the buyer will drive it more than I did. That's pretty much the reason I sold it, didn't want it to become a garage queen like so many are, because I don't drive much and it deserves to be driven.
