With the TEMPORY disruption in deliveries of fuel, I'd wait a week.

I hope the TEMPORARY disruption in deliveries of fuel is not like a temporary TAX increase. [emoticon]

Wise guy. But your post brings up a couple of things I'm always puzzled by. How much gas is consumed by folks queuing up in line waiting to probably top off and not fill up? Reminds me of the endless line at Costco supply problem or not to save maybe 25 cents a gallon.

BTW, some unfortunate soul north of Tampa carbecued his H2 Hummer yesterday when the 4 plastic gas cans he had just filled ignited as he drove off.

Yes sir, and there you will sit when the electric grid is hacked or power stations cannot meet the demand of everyone driving electric cars!!

Unfortunate. Hope no one was hurt.

Hauling gas even in enclosed containers seems to stink up a car. An open truck is the answer on those days. Been there done that.

That’s a model S. No tow rating. The picture was meant to be humorous.

But I will say it's been a few months since I've had need for the fireplace! [emoticon]
