On thing to remember, useful load includes the fuel in the gas tank.

So add another 120 pounds (20 gallons) to what you think you would take.

I would say 2 vehicles, and split the load between them. Half the food and ammo in each one. You do need to double the fuel you carry..

But this way, if one breaks, you can move the people to the one still working, and carry on. And if neither breaks, you carry twice as much stuff.

Startron is far superior. All my small engines start on no more than three pulls now.

You should be using Star Tron instead of Stabil.

I've had good luck with Surecan. They don't warp in heat, have little chance of leaking and are a durable poly can.

No it doesnít. Vehicle payload capacities are listed with full fuel, accessories and fluids.

So full gas tank.

But yes to the more stuff carried. Just set it up so itís easy to move the critical stuff to the other vehicle. Or one carries the not important stuff and if itís the one that is fine and the other brakes down, dump the stuff and move everything else over.

Eww. At least the capacities of the few vehicles I’ve looked at said they include a full tank of gas and all fluids, spare tire and accessories.

Makes sense someone would deviate from that to make their payload sound more impressive

Yeah... it's more concentrated and can sequester more water than the regular red stuff. Other than that, it's basically the same.

I still prefer Startron...
