Check out the new video on the Hobo Page to the right of this blog. I also embedded it below for your convenience.
I made a lamp using motor oil, a tin can, some cotton cloth and a twig.
My Geo only takes 3.5 quarts of oil, so every 3 months, I get half a quart of oil to bring home with me.
Since my car doesn't burn oil yet, even though its a '96 with 121,000 miles, I have oil to "burn".
Hence, the hobo lamp.
Hope you enjoy it.
