So how many of you have 3,000 miles worth of fuel, at half your daily MPG, stocked up? Or 5,000? Or 10,000? How often do you have to fill up compared to oil changes, replacing axles and brakes, or do an engine overall?
Reliability and some spare parts to ease impromptu repairs before being forced to hit up the auto parts store or junk yard are great, but the vast majority of preppers are going to run out of fuel long before it comes time to do many repairs. That money, time, and energy would probably be better spent in long-term oriented easily- or self-sustained preparations.
