RE: [DML] Re: overnight running in garage

  Just a minor adjustment to paragraph 1:  Carbon DI-oxide is the essential component of plant photosynthesis. It is synthesized into Oxygen which is "exhaled" by plant-life. Indeed, I heartily agree with your further observations.    Drive Stainless      (and thank the "increase of CO2" by breathing deeply the increased O2 produced by the increase in plant-life)   Robert (RN)    VIN 6924     ;-)
