Propane is even better. Tanks can be buried, no transfer or pumping required, and you can also run your propane furnace, gas logs, stove, etc off it if need be.

Plus propane absolutely does not degrade, diesel will grow stuff if not treated at regular intervals, and propane isn’t prone to picking up water.

Yep, stocked with that, too. 100 gal LPG tank outside house for water heater/fireplace and many small tanks, but hard to keep track of all the hose adapters and things over the years.

The one time I had to make an adapter was when the big tank ran out LOL and I had to run the house off small tanks. My truck is equipped with all this stuff also.

As far as the diesel, I do have a spare water-removing-filter for the truck and an almost unused one in it. I know you can use a bactricide on the diesel but then it tends to clog up the filters. But I guess that is better than plugging up the injectors?

I’m not going to try to post anymore tonight. Too many timeouts.
