Message Subject To stock up on gasoline or not !
Poster Handle Anonymous Coward
Post Content
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!

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.

This is why if you live in coastal cities places like wawa have "boat fuel" this is non-ethanol 89 octane fuel. This is real gasoline before they started adulterating it with ethanol a decade or more ago. In general the stuff runs about 25-50cents a gallon more than the bastardized fuel. I only put non-ethanol fuel in my car unless i dont have a choice, I also notice a 2-3mpg difference less when I am in a situation where I have had to put the bastardized fuel in my car. Per volume, ethanol has less energy per gas, so each gallon of bastardized fuel doesn't get you as far as real gas does.
