What are you using for stabilizer?

You should be using Star Tron instead of Stabil.

I use Star Tron fuel stabilizer. I buy it at Jack’s Small Engines in Jarrettsville. I buy all of my equipment from Jack’s. They are a great shop with outstanding customer service.

I think these are the same company now. I purchased several under the Valpro label years ago and never had an issue. I even dropped one off a shelf, full, from a height of six feet. It barely scraped the paint.

www.roverparts.com has a pack of 4 for sale for $170

I use Pri-G to stabilize. Have used year old gas with no issues or noticeable performance change.
If you can find them elsewhere, I suggest keep looking. Atlantic British is like the Cheaper than Dirt of Land Rover parts. I've owned several Rover project cars and I know a thing or two because I've blown a wad of cash or two. YMMV.

There seems to be a little over thinking on this topic.

For storage, the question is how much fuel to have on hand. I tend to agree with the military on this. The military goes by issues of fuel. An issue of fuel is how much it would take to fill the fuel tanks of all of the vehicles. If the vehicle has a 78-gallon tank, then an issue of fuel is 78 gallons. More vehicles, more fuel.

So how much to have on hand depends on your vehicle.

Iíll offer an example for how much to have on hand and how to rotate the fuel to keep it fresh.

Say your pickup has a 30-gallon tank. Then one should have 6 five-gallon fuel cans filled and stored in a safe place. Around once a month when the tank in the pickup goes below half full, empty 2-3 fuel cans in the vehicle and place the empty cans in the bed. Then when you top off the vehicle, fill the empty fuel cans and place them back in storage. Repeat the process every month. The result is the fuel on hand is never more than two months old. This method also saves the cost of fuel stabilizers.

The above is for gasoline, diesel fuel is a whole different matter.

Oops. Off topic. This is about a bug out situation. Never mind.

I guess I should make it 8 in case I need to do a complete fill at home in the middle of the night before I split.

Why? Why do you want to go to TN without stopping for gas? You still have to stop and move the gas in your cans into the cars tank.

This is the proverbial SHTF scenario. If youíre being literal about it, of course Iíd need to stop, but I can think of several scenarios where a gas station is not the place to refill - power out/pumps down, long lines, fighting.

Good comparison rating about 1/2 way down the page (1st half is about sound underground storage considerations): https://www.countryhomesteadliving.com/fuel-storage/
