Re: To stock up on gasoline or not !
It's always a good idea to stock up on anything that can be useful in the future.
I know I'm filling up my empty gas cans.
Why not?1dunno1

I have to an extent ... but you have to add stabilizer. Gasoline goes bad after a few months.

Re: To stock up on gasoline or not !
I have all kinds of chain saws ,generator,log splitter,tractor ,mowers etc.. all need fuel ...My saying when I was wheeling out huge loads of T.P. ,canned goods,bleach,other items and people would ask: what are you going to do with all that ??!. I would just say to them : "If you got it you got it".RagnorTHKNbrucelee2brucelee1

Wife works high up in oil and gas. No problems with supply in US. We are keeping our cars full and filled our cans but not concerned. With so few people on the roads gas isn’t an issue at all. I will make a post if things change.

Re: 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 !
Always keep your tank above 1/4 anyway, because driving around with little gas in tank can damage fuel pump ( gasoline cools pump). It costs almost $1000 in labor and parts to remove a gas tank, replace damaged pump. Also, air in tank increases condensation and water buildup in gasoline.

Gasoline will stay plentiful and cheap, but never let the tank get low for other reasons.

I get that there is plenty of fuel ready to be trucked to gas stations. What I am hearing is that when the country goes lockdown, then there will be rationing and very fuel gas stations even open, like 1 per x amount of population in an area.

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.

No. Please.

No need to hoard gas too at this point, unless you absolutely need it to travel for the kind of work you do.

There are people who do need it for that, and hoarding it will only ensure they won't have any, just like the healthcare workers who can't get masks now.

The off-road title is confusing. The AC was talking about regular pump fuel that is 92 Octane with no Ethanol. It is best for motorcycles, 4 wheelers, mowers, ect. It is usually 30 cents or more per gallon

With diesel you are right, it is cheaper, but has dye in it.

possibility of the government hoarding or redirecting fuel in case there is something big about to go down ?

Yeah, and there was so much TP on the shelves 2 weeks ago, you couldn't find a space between rolls. Now...

You have to get that gas from the refineries to the stations, and that takes coordinated transportation. If everyone goes out and hits gas stations like they did grocery stores, stations will be out. The refineries might be full - but individual stations will experience outages.

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
