Questions and Concerns to Mission Support:
Had a problem with the rover: we plugged the batteries just as
indicated by manuel and crew 165. When we flipped the CPU switch on,
we got a white smoke (not a whole cloud, just a light smoke like when
you crack a match). We turned it directly off and tried to find the
problem. We weren't able to find anything and when we tried with other
batteries, the rover worked perfectly. We decided not to take it
outside. We also checked and we did not use the defected batteries
which were found by crew 165.

Currently running no the Cat (backup generator)
Stalled yesterday due to no oil.  3 quarts added at 9 pm.
Shut down for 5 minutes today for oil check.  One quart added at 5 pm.
Some leakage occurred at the dipstick due to it not being closed all
the way.
