Stu Nicholson General I would hope this tanker is empty.... given the sign that says "chemicals"... that could be some nasty stuff inside. 8/30/2011 11:15:32 AM
Jason Glydewell General From what I was told, it was used to haul tung oil, a non-toxic substance that grows on trees around here. But out of curiosity I did climb up and peek inside and it is indeed empty. 8/30/2011 4:14:54 PM
