Who in here has an "EMP Proof" Bug Out Vehicle?????
I do, it's a 1992 Ford F-250 with all mechanical injection, nothing electronic makes it run. It's a 5 speed 7.3 diesel. I can start it, take the battery out and it keeps running. Anyone else have anything like this?

Yup, got three. One is a fast trimaran sailboat, no power needed. Two, a couple of fine bikes. Ultimately, bikes may be your best bet. An average person can cover over 60 miles a day. Do get a trailer for them or good bags though.

True, bikes may be good, but I can hold 140 gallons of diesel in my tanks and go over 2400 miles with them full.

Anyone who thinks they are going to "bug out" of cities after the shit hits the fan will find that it was all fantasy. They will die along with the rest of the city fuckers.

My chevy volt is covered in tin foil. That count?

Is yours stock or you make mods? Bigger fuel tank? How can you test that it is emp proof?

I thought it was pre 1970-something cars that did not have electric starters.

Here's a problem. If you attempt to bug out and have the only working vehicle, you will probably be shot by a guy who will steal your vehicle, who will be shot by somebody else stealing the vehicle from him, and on and on. Board up the windows and keep your head down for the first few months.

Remove battery and run a ground wire from engine block into grounding pole hamered about 6 feet into the ground. Should work.

Only problem, there is a lot of people will revert to their base nature pretty quickly in a SHTF situation. Hell they're already doing it. In cities there will be burning and no one to put out the fires. Hunkering down could be more dangerous than running for it.

Rather than just someone posting a dumb laughing smilie, I will explain.

Diesels do not have ignition, spark plugs, or in this units case, any electronic controls. It will probably keep running even without the alternator, but that means no headlights. None of the gauges will work post EMP but that is ok on that truck. They probably don't work anyway.

I still LOL at the Bug-out-tards though... Survival is not a camping trip or a bike ride.

And who ever said he will get shot and have the truck taken is probably right. If a mob sees a running vehicle, they will mob it and probably destroy it while trying to take it.

Wrong.

A car with a points distributor will run just fine. They have to be pre 1972-73 I think... before electronic/CDI ignition.

1983 Diesel Suburban
1988 Ford/IH crane truck
1997 Dodge Cummins PU

All have mechanical injection engines. If I can get them started, they will run. Fuel, Compression, and Air are all that's required.

Well, there is nothing to test. It's mechanical, an emp will have no effect on mechanical devices. Injection pump, everything that is vital for the engine to run is mechanical, no computers whatsoever. Yes, I have an aux. 100 tank that is full in the bed. And for the other guy that says people won't be able to "bug out", he's full of crap or in denial. I at least am giving my family and myself a way to get out. I live in a city of less than 100k anyways, so it won't be that hard to get away.

You're a smart guy, the IDI is a VERY good and robust engine that will run 500k miles easily. The only other choice I would choose would be a 12 valve 5.9 cummins, but the Dodge bodies are junk.
