    trouble finding fuel

    Am I the only one that is having trouble finding fuel? I had to make a trip today, one that took 1/2 tank of gas. On the way home, I stopped by 6 gas station. All were out.

    I think God is smiling on me.

    Week ago Saturday, I bought a 500 gallon eaton farm gas tank on the stand.
    Got it up, rehosed, revalved and being filled on Friday.

    Read about the Columbia Pipeline folk problems.

    Thanks for watching out over me Lord.


    Some folks call it luck.

    congrats on the tank!! having fuel is huge.
    I recommend using pri-g. our sponsor sells it.
    I had gasoline in a boat engine sit for ?? 2-3 years. (story posted somewhere on here I think)
    it was still good, and no problem with carb or fuel lines.

    Exactly so.
    I got a Pri distributor several years ago.
    Same results as you .
    I use PRI-D exclusively and it works as well on gas as it does on diesel.

    I had Gas I put in German 20L jerry cans in 2002 at the ranch.

    Am using it this summer and it's still good. Although, in 2002, I did double dose it

    Can't recommend PRI products enough,

    And yes, I will dose the big tank with every fill.

    I have several gallons stored that I rotate-out as well, using PRI-D (thanks Lowdown). I was waiting to see if I was going to have to dip in to my storage, but my neighbor spotted a station 2 miles away that had a line of cars and I topped-off there. The price was 50 cents higher than last week, but he had fuel non-the-less. I expect this will be SOP for the next 2-3 weeks. He travels for work; one town 20 miles to the west has been out all week, another town 20 miles to the east of us has not had any shortages. No conspiracies there.

    Bill,

    At least according to the news the pipeline has been repaired. Current projections are that the fuel situation here should be back to 'normal' sometime next week. We filled up Saturday and also have several gallons in 'reserve' (pri-g to the rescue), but have been keeping track of the situation. The governor here (Georgia) has frozen gas prices in an attempt to mitigate price gouging. We'll see how well that works...the news shows have been pretty good at calling out gougers as thy find them.

    We'll see what prices do once the 'shortage' is resolved LOL

    an associate has gas and diesel tanks.
    as this thing developed and prices climbed, he commented...
    "hey, I've got a 500 gallon tank!" with some concealed pride.
    --
    while visiting, we went to check the tank.
    yep. he has a tank.
    I started running my hand down side of tank.
    "hey bud, how long since you filled this thing."
    "oh... not long.. why?"
    "cause, you ain't got much fuel in there! that's why."

    I wasn't there during the fueling.
    but gas truck came and put in 360 gallons associate says.
    he paid 2.23 for no ethanol regular on 9-21
    gas company told him to wait a week and it would be less.. that the gas was beginning to flow.
    gas here is 2.25 to 2.30 for ethanol.

    bottom line of this story.
    the guy had let tank run low. needed to buy during a temporary high priced time period.
    the guy felt good about having a tank. but he didn't have the fuel he thought he did!

    edited to add..
    when associate called gas company, they quizzed him about need... lots of folks were calling for truck to come by and the truck was only adding 40 to 80 gallons.
    folks were "topping off."
    and this was real inefficient for the delivery process and truck operation etc..

    Here we go again. The same pipeline that went out in September just blew up. Shortages and gouging to be expected.
