It was the little diesel skidsteer and I had it rolling coal to do what needed to be done. I think when you are doing that there is a fair amount of unburned fuel, a bit of wicked bad blowby oil and whatever soot is banging out of the machine. We moved lumber, sawmill and iron the following day and the fog lifted early afternoon. I think I harked up the last of the goo yesterday. We have an old chimney hole through the kitchen floor I'll try to put a fan over and shove makeup air at the problem, then just shorter cycles with more outside time. I think diesel is probably safer than gasoline, it tends to run you out.

It may have been more petroleum intoxication, and not carbon monoxide.  easier to tell with a lab test.   :) :)

The swifter move is probably not to be the lab rat  :D.
Thanks to both of you for the education  :).
