I don't quite understand your plan. Your thinking about burying fuel along a public road? If so I don't think that would be a good idea. Probably very illegal.
I dont think that this would be a realistic idea, Underground storage of fuel requires lots of permits and their are tons of regulations. Not to mention that somebody might stumble upon your "stash" or see you burying it.I have been thinking of stashing fuel along maybe 2 of my possible egress routes in case I need to flee. I was thinking that I might get like 5ea 5 gal cans with stabilizer in them and burry them and mark a gps location and proximity to a landmark.
Anyone else consider anything like this?
I figure my jeep has about 150 mile range off road with it's 15 gal tank. So that's about 10 mpg. And then I carry 2 5 gal cans on the back so there's another 100 miles. So if i put them out at 200 miles i'll have 50 miles buffer.
There are so many things wrong with that idea...What if you drain a well then pour cement into the bottom to seal it off then use it to store gasoline?
It is "Possible" to find good old gas, just not "real easy", to find ethanol free gas in your area, go toI'm inclined to believe that you can't get gas without ethanol as an additive now days, and that crap has caused more fuel system problems than we may ever know.
Great info, Davarm! Just found out that I'd have to drive over 60 miles from home to get "non-enhanced" gas...crap, I guess my gut feelings were correct, at least for my area.It is "Possible" to find good old gas, just not "real easy", to find ethanol free gas in your area, go to
