    What is the price of gas where you live? Include a picture if you can. It's almost $3/ gallon in southeastern Pennsylvania. The national average price of gas in the U.S. has risen 20.8% since the end of January. It’s on track to hit an average of $3 per gallon this week. I wonder what...

    Although I'd rather carry gas on the outside of my car, because of the risk of theft if caught in gridlock or having to park and leave it temporarily (the dogs will guard the inside), is there a safe, non-messy, and non-smelly way to carry a couple of 5 gallon cans of gas inside the car if I...

    I just tried to light up my SVEA 123 (40+ year old hand-me-down) that has been sitting for about two years with gas in it. I cleaned the jet with a needle, primed it and guess what? It fired right up! I love this stove! If you are looking for a durable little stove that you can use on a...

    I had a chance to test out the generator in a real lights out situation. This is the first time we lost electric at home since Onan was recalled to the factory. A four hour fault in the underground system was a nice test for the Generac set up. It took me 35 minutes to get the food storage and...

    Hi All So I was wondering if anyone here has any suggestions for a good (and hopefully cheap) gasoline pump for a 55 gallon fuel drum. Given my land, my best option for storing some fuel was a 55 gallon steel drum, which I got for free. (I also have some propane, but don't have enough land to...

    I recently ordered a 3M 6200 half-face respirator and for some reason when I breathe in or out slightly the one-way filters sound like somebody is blowing rasberries. Is the mask defective? Would it be safe? I'm new to respirators, sorry. I wish I had more detail to give.

    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...

    I keep "enough." Mainly because if our BOV were completely empty (which it never is) we still have enough stored to get to our farthest possible BOL if we need to. If it were full then with what we have stored we would have twice as much as we need to get there. The other reason we keep it is...

    I recently bought the Campingaz Micro Bluet stove and the CV270 cartridge that connects to the stove. What is the safest way to store it long term? For that matter would you advise storing compressed gas like this? Thanks
