  1. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I've been searching the internet, other forums etc.... and I've never heard of using USED MOTOR OIL mixed with DIESEL FUEL as a wood sealer. Anyone heard of it? Yes, someone I know used it on the wooden bed of his truck. He proudly exclaimed that he's recycling, found a great use for that old...

    Does anyone have the formula for making field diesel? I searched on the forum but couldn't find anything. I'm not talking about a biodiesel refiner, rather a combination of ingredients I saw on one of the many pre-2012 survivalist TV shows. The main ingredient was filtered, used vegetable oil...

    So i have decided to invest in a bug out vehicle and after lots of research i have narrowed it down to a diesel station wagon made between 1975 and 1985. I like these because they are generally more affordable cause lets face it...nobody want them, and for fuel efficiency, gas tank size, EMP...

    I have used kerosene heaters for about 5 years. They have actually been the primary daytime winter heat source for the last 2 years or so. Never heard of using diesel but just came across it and plan to try it. It is about half the price of kerosene ($2.35 vs $4.98 in my area). From what I have...

    They have a one time hit to stock price (160 to 100). They have a huge recall which will hit earnings. This is the time to possibly invest. I havent done any research so I dont know if I am or not.
  7. Farming, Gardening & Homesteading
    We had some timber cleared at the homestead by a logging company, now the tree stumps have to be dealt with. The largest stump is maybe 30 inches across, while most of them are around 12 inches across. A buddy of mine suggested I use a chainsaw to cut groves into the tree stump, which I will...

    Hey, I purchased my first diesel yesterday. Not my dream truck or even a good BOV, but everybody has to start somewhere. I have a 89 Chevy 2500 6.2 liter 2 wheel drive. Has a 150,000 on it and looks like it has been to quite a few job sites. I only paid $800 for so I figure I cant really loose...

    Coming up for auction in my area is a 1984 CUCV Diesel Blazer. It has 68,000 miles or so. What would be good price for this rig if it is in running condition and fair condition overall for its age?

  12. Vehicles & Transportation
    I am looking to buy a diesel BOV. Something 1990s or earlier, manual transmission, 4x4, with little or no electronics. It seems it will have to be a pick up or SUV. Pre 1998 Dodge RAM is first in the list but any car will do. It seems options are limited so I am considering buying any...

    I found for sale in my area a 1986 Ford F350 pickup. This truck has a 6.9 diesel motor with a 4 speed transmission. It is a quad cab with a 8 ft bed. Owner claims that it is mechanical sound and needs nothing. The seller is asking $1900. I feel that this would be enough room for my family of...

    I should've put this with my thread on gasoline storage, but I didn't know it would get so many responses. So I figured I would make a new one just for a poll. Also I made it anonymous, so be honest. Attn. farmers and ranchers Just for clarification, gasoline or diesel doesn't really matter...

    Anyone know if diesel would work in a kerosene space heater? I realize it would most likely be smellier and ventilation would be important. Kerosene is about $10 a gallon at the hardware store. Wonder too, if bio-diesel would work...would make the shop smell like french frys eh? Going to be cold...

    Does anyone know how old a diesel vehicle has to be to run after a EMP? I was told that they started using computers with them in 1993. Please help

    I am interested in storing several gallons of diesel fuel for the long haul and am curious about how to stabilize it. They make multiple additives for gasoline, but I have not had much luck with an additive for diesel. Any help would be much appreciated. God Bless, Jerry
  18. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Angeryamerican was relating how he found a good deal on an 85 Suburban diesel and it got me to thinking - how does one store diesel? Does it have the same limited lifespan that regular gasoline does? Can you put it into a 'gas' can, or do you need something different? Not asking because we...

    I live smack in the middle of Hurricane alley, and I want to purchase a generator to run my camper I live in. It's a camper with a 30amp 120 volt main circuit, so the MAXIMUM it could pull would be roughly 3200 watts. Knowing that generators typically like to run most efficiently in the 75-80%...
