So ahm DoomsDay Prepping over here, altho I did blow my N'Yawk chance for an
array of assault weapons.... <sigh>
Proly just as well, as I'm too cheap to pay bux for that kind of ammo.....
I'd proly get $-per-bullet chest pains at target practice.... lol....
Plus, with the 500 gals of gasoline I plan on storing, I figger there's more
than enough gas there for a shitload of molotov cocktails, which should keep
the marauding cocksuckers at bay for a while.....
But since the consensus seems to be that gas does indeed go bad after a year
or so, I figgered instead of mule-ing boucou gas cans to and fro (Sandy,
boyzngerlz?), if I could tap into the fuel line and jump the fuel pump, I
could use the vehicle itself as a "transfer station" -- more specifically,
to take fresh gas from the vehicle's tank, and deposit it into my 500 gal
Then, to fill up the vehicle from my stash (for recycling, shortage,
whatever), I'd just use a gas-friendly electric xsfer pump attached to the
So basically, the Q is:
How practical is using the vehicle's fuel pump as a transfer pump? Even
for, say, giving a stranded motorist a cupla gallons, without having to lug
a gas can around?
Some of the rationale for the Q is that it's hard to drop a tube via the gas
fill on a vehicle, as they seem to have the fill tube set up to block
siphoning. If there were a straightforward way to drop a tube into the gas
tank, I could use the external transfer pump both ways, and not bother with
the fuel pump.
I was also looking at just putting a spigot underneath, on the gas tank
itself, that I could quick-connect a pump to.
Dat seems to be a bit of work, tho, and perhaps dicey work at that, ergo my
fuel pump idear, but mebbe there's a neat way to do a spigot.....
Just have to make sure my entreepreeneering neighborhood homeys don't find
out about sed spigot....
Inyone else prepping?? lol
