To stock up on gasoline or not !
So I have several contacts in the armed forces and a couple of them have warned to stock up on fuel. I know there have been several posts here about this yet I am not sure of the validity of this.

If there really is something way more sinister than the virus about to happen then yes , I could see where having some fuel reserves would be a good thing.

Or maybe if they do go ahead and initiate a 2 week or more nationwide quarantine then again, it would probably be a good idea to have extra fuel in case the power goes out.

Either way, we are all most certainly living in unsure, crazy times and the only way America will get through this is if we all stand together. Take care of your neighbors and they will take care of you!

Re: To stock up on gasoline or not !
there is so much oil in reserves they don't know where to put it all

and like with china, their consumption dropped by over 12 million barrels a month.

Finding gas should not be a problem unless of course everybody is dead


then it wont really mattter

Re: To stock up on gasoline or not !
possibility of the government hoarding or redirecting fuel in case there is something big about to go down ?

I have a feeling we will all know a lil more either by the end of the weekend or by Monday.

I live right near 5 oil refineries, they have all slowed down their operations due to more on hand then they can sell.

I will keep you updated.

I dont believe it will be a lack of fuel in reserves if we do get shut off. Probably either to make sure the military has what they need first or to force citizens to not travel .

Where you driving if you are quarantined? Think there is going to be a gas shortage due to all the other people driving?

Keep your tank more than half full during events like this, but gas would be low priority with this situation.

Gas/Oil should be very plentiful, BUT the Gov/Mil is going to ration it!
Why, I do not know.

Many of those receiving their "Permission to Travel" papers have also been receiving a paper giving them permission to buy fuel.
So yes it is going to be rationed/regulated.

we will all still have to drive to grocery stores or at least to food depo if they set them up. If they really expect Americans to not leave their homes for weeks or even months, there will be a collapse and major looting !

Another alternative is PRI-G (there is also PRI-D for Diesel). It is similar to stabil, but lasts a lot longer and also has an Octane booster. I find it works better for octane-sensitive items like 4-wheelers, motorcycles, chain saws, ect.

It is more expensive, but a bottle also goes a lot further. It cost $35 for a bigger bottle, but that will do 500+ gallons of gas, as opposed to 88 gallons for a similar sized stabil

Stoves and tools bro. Many of us have backpacking liquid fuel stoves as backup cooking options. Also uncut lawns can become fire hazards come summer. The World is changing quick.

Live in NC. I heard a shelter in place order may be coming. Even though we will likely not be driving much, I topped off all our vehicles. If nothing else, having 150 or more gallons of gas around for our farm vehicles, chainsaws, etc. to siphon from will be good.

If there really is something way more sinister than the virus about to happen then yes , I could see where having some fuel reserves would be a good thing.

Or maybe if they do go ahead and initiate a 2 week or more nationwide quarantine then again, it would probably be a good idea to have extra fuel in case the power goes out.

buy gas and you can watch the Phase separation when ethanol in the fuel absorbs too much water, and separates from gasoline by dropping to the bottom of the tank since the ethanol and water mixture that results from phase separation is heavier than gasoline.
