    I'm in central Georgia, so winter temps in the 20's with occasional dips to the teens and summer temps in the 90's. It's fall, so yesterday (25 Oct) I was out blowing leaves using gasoline purchased and treated with Sta-Bil on 23 July 2015. That's 15 months of storage in a shed with exposure...

    Okay, stupid question time... I bought a generator for keeping the freezer happy if we have short-term power outages. But, I am not sure, how do I test it and then properly store it so it'll be good when I need it? We don't have power outages regularly here, so I don't want it to sit with old...

    The good news is that I found a local fuel company that will sell me premix 87 octane gasoline (no ethanol!) for just a few cents over the regular E10 mix. They also sell, for $30, a brand new 55 gallon drum for storing said fuel. Alright! So now I just have to figure out where I should store...

    High gasoline prices - its ethanol's fault http://www.marketwatch.com/story/ethanol-price-spike-means-you-pay-more-for-gasoline-2014-04-04 Drivers are paying more for gasoline because of ethanol’s 30% price surge this year.

    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...

    So I'm sure most of you are aware of the potential "black out" coming. I was wondering, is there a gasoline powered generator that you would recommend to keep a 5,000 square foot home's utilities going if such a power outage lasts for longer than a day or two? Food storage, ammo, etc. are...

    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 was watching the news feeds from Hurricane Sandy and one thing I noticed was all the people in line at gas stations with their 2 or 3 - 5 gallon gas cans and having to fill them up to keep their generators running.. So it got me thinking about doing a tri fuel kit to my Coleman generator, so...

    A combination of complacency and poor planning by the government and stormy weather has seen the small Pacific island run out of petrol. The Norfolk Island government has up till now has ensured there has been surplus gasoline available because the fuel supply by ship is unreliable (single point...

    As you do, I've just been beetling around on the Internet researching things and stumbled on generators and have been reading up about them; particularly inverter generators as I think the flexibility to use with electronics would be useful. I can't justify the expense at the moment ... but I'm...

    Hey folks, just curious as to what all of you are planning on for gasoline during an evac type situation. As we all know, the gas stations will be hot targets as seen during katrina. Is anyone here caching petrol, oil, any other automotive products? Semper Fi Matt

    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...

    If you've been following my posts for awhile you might think that this is a dupe but it's not. My previous method focused on building a wood gasifier as per FEMA specs. The advantage of a wood gas system is that it can be used to power any internal combustion engine, whether it's diesel, cng or...

    http://www.cnbc.com/id/42683030 This is the kind of thing I'd expect to hear right before things get unruly. (Also, note that Euro Pacific Capital is Peter Schiff's company out of Connecticut. That little tid bit might lend some serious credibility to these opinions considering he was one of...

    http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/42460541/ns/technology_and_science-innovation This is actually pretty interesting with mammoth ramifications if it turns out to something that is viable - which it appears that it might be. Read the entire short article. They are actually saying they'll have a...

    Correct me if I'm wrong. Used too, people/news/librals blamed high gas prices on President Bush's War On Terrrorism in Iraq. The war is now over. Now the news agencies blame high gas prices on the turmoil in Libya. But the gas prices were on the rise before the revolution in Libya. What up with...
