Well, the big truck (F350 dual), the tractor, and generators are diesel. So, the biofuel idea is actually a pretty good one for these. (and I'm going
to look into that).
This is more for the smaller truck (F250), car, and mower.
I like the leasing idea, I'll look into that also.
Is the additive formulated for the ethanol in the fuel
This company makes the same treatment options that the refineries and oil companies use to preserve fuel quality while awaiting sale, etc. Yes, it
takes that into account.
As for storing it in smaller containers...again, untreated gas will deteriorate. It's why your lawnmower that you last used last year, isn't going to
start up without adding new, good gas.
As for the tank and visibility, you can bet in a SHTF scenario, I'd be hiding that tank from view. In fact, I've been working on some ideas that can
make a decent looking ranch appear like an abandoned for years type place, in such a scenario.
By the way, I got the quote back. I expected around $5000, was just a bit more...
For a 300 gallon tank, mounted, with dispenser hose/nozzle, and associated gauges and what-nots, came to a little over $6200.
I'm definitely going to check into all options (especially the leasing one and biofuels), and see what all is out there, before committing that kind
of money to it, but it's nice to know where this is all at. Would have been nice if the quote was more itemized.
