SHTF, doubtful I will be driving at all just due to fuel alone. Had a buddy who made his own biodiesel though, about $.55 /gallon, that would be a reasonable option possibly.
I have my mountain bike and a good pair of boots to get me around!
Once upon a time you could store gas, not any more. The stuff at the pump these days won't keep more than 2, or 3, months. Considering the amount of fossel fuel it takes to make methanol, I really think that the reason it's in our gas today is so we can't store it. I had 4 5gal cans containers that I kept gas in for everything around here. Even with pro-long in the can it still went bad. I now only buy what I need for the next week or so. I don't think you would find enough cooking oil in a SHTF situation to produce bio diesel. I would like to have some mules. I can plow with them, ride them, or use them as pack animals.
Y'all be safe now, ya hear!
