    Click HERE to see the chart. Useful information if you're still deciding. I purchased an inexpensive gas portable generator and plan on installing a tri fuel kit.

    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...

Anyways, today I was visiting with my small engine repair mechanic and he...

    I think we have become acostumed to many commodities that we may find hard to live without. One of the things that I'm sure will need is a fair amount of fuel to get where I'm going and one tank of fuel will not do the job. I've considered a fuel transfer tank, but was told that the fuel will...

    I would like to store about 25 gallons of gas some place where I can rotate it every so often, but I really don't want to store it in my garage because it is attached. I don't want my house to burn down and don't know of any way to safely store it. I have steel cans, and was trying to think of...

    Hey guys - I have a couple of questions about storing Kerosene. I have a kerosene heater that I keep for emergencies, and have always kept a 5 gal jug of Kerosene in the garage. I'm planning to expand to 3-4 jugs and with my new shed thought it would be safer stored in there instead of in the...
