My point was that not everyone has a place to store significant quantities of
gas safely.  It's not nice stuff to store, in comparison with diesel, for
instance.


Again, my point.


I generally keep enough gas in my vehicles to make 10 miles.  ;-)


No argument here.  Take Slowman, please!

So instead of storing 10-20 gallons in steel airtight cans in your
garage or outside under cover..you keep a plastic 5 gallon can.

Well..if it works for  you..go for it.


So you store 5 gallons instead of a suitable amount.

So what happens if the outage is more than 10 miles?

Btw...there was (1) gas station in  that 10 mile range. The next closet
one was 32 miles.

Hope you got enough range to make it to your closest functioning gas
station when your power is out due to a major distribution outage.

And there arent 100,000 people between it..and you...and the roads are
passible.

And you have cash. Because most of the ATM and card readers may be out.

Shrug.

Its your life. Do what you will with it.

As for me...one of my long time hangouts, is misc.survivalism.

Both as a teacher and a student.

RE/

Based on experience, I wouldn't store even *one* gallon of
gasoline in my garage or anywhere else even close to my house.

You have a fire or something and "Boom"....

Also, don't knock plastic: at least it doesn't rust.

Once I found a two-gallon steel can that had rusted out in the
bottom and allowed it's entire contents to dribble out onto the
floor.

Then you dont store your vehicle in your garage either. Right?

True indeed.  And sometimes when you drop one, they dont split open. On
the other hand..sometimes they do.  And if you leave them out in the sun
for any apprciable amount of time..they go white, then get
fragile..really fragile.  Which I found out about about 15 yrs ago when
I had my liquids stocks partially in plastic cans.  Fortunately the ones
that fell apart held only high sulpher cutting oils. Which while making
a hell of a mess..didnt have the capability of exploding into flames.

I once had a VW that had rusted out the floor in the rear passenger
compartment.

This was the result of piss poor prior planning by prior possessers <G>

You guys do what you wish. It is after all...YOUR problem to handle as
best as you can.

As for me...shrug..Ill simply continue to offer Suggestions, which you
are free to take, or not. Your life, not mine.
