sure can. 2 in the saddlebag postion, one on the front fender, leaning back against the rifle in the spring-clamps on the handlebars, and one in front of and one in back of a buddyrest. BOB's lashed to the handlebars and riding on the gas tank. It's truly amazing how stupid people really are.

same lying pos says that farmers dont bother to have gasoline around. :-) I got news, diesel tractors are a pita to get going in cold weather and you still have to have gas for your truck, car, mower, rototiller, etc. Lots of my people in Illinois still have gasoline tractors and combines, too. Nobody can afford the new ones and they just dont put enough hours on them to wear them out. So they just repair them and keep on using them.

Wake up it is the 21st century. Look at the farms an the equipment these days. Some small stuff is still gas powered. ALL large equipment is diesel these days. Most gas gas powered tractors are museum pieces.

Food is not portable, but you're ok carrying 5 jerry cans worth of fuel?

interesting.

I can't speak for things nationwide, but where I am, I don't know anyone who has a gasoline tractor. There is some stuff used that is gasoline, but not near as much as when I was a kid. On our farm in the 60's to early 80's, all three of our tractors were gasoline (one case, one very old john deere, and one small massey ferguson). Even the two small tractors I looked into (Kubota B3501 and Kioti CK3510; ended up buying the Kioti) were both diesel. Hadn't thought about it until reading this thread, but I honestly can't think of anyone I know who owns a gasoline tractor. I'm sure they're still out there, but I don't know anyone with one. I have a gasoline John Deere, but it's not at all a 'tractor'; just a lawnmower bought at Lowes, nothing a farm would use.

Got me curious so I looked on tractordata, a site I used when shopping and comparing:

Diesel
Diesel fuel first started appearing in large agricultural crawlers in the 1930s, but it was not until the 1950s that diesel became a major fuel source for farm tractors. Difficult starting limited the use of early diesel engines. Some manufacturers built spark-ignition diesel engines, or engines that started on gasoline and were switched over to diesel. Others used small gasoline "pony motors" to warm and start the diesel main engine.

By 1960, diesel engines had greatly improved and were becoming very popular for large farm tractors. By the 1970s, nearly all farm tractors used diesel engines...

Gasoline
Starting with John Froelich's 1892 tractor, gasoline had always been a fuel for farm tractors. Most tractors built through World War II either used gasoline, or could use gasoline (in an all-fuel engine). By the 1960s, diesel was replacing gasoline as the primary fuel, although gasoline was often an option into the 1970s. Today, gasoline is only used in lawn tractors or other small equipment.
I'm sure some farms still probably keep some amount of gasoline on hand. Tractors aside, they're bound to have some small stuff that uses gasoline, even if it's just small things like small lawnmowers, pumps or whatever. So they're likely to have some, but not near like they would diesel.


All that said........ In a survival situation (since this is the 'survival' forum, if you're using a bicycle for transportation, what's all the gasoline being lugged around for? Cans/buckets of food, water, whatever, maybe; but gasoline?

I think his fantasies hop from bicycle to motorcycle and back and forth.

Although I can just imagine a set up like this with Melvin perched upon the front can with wifey struggling to peddle the whole contraption.

You're right. He's mentioned strapping things on a bicycle so many times I missed the part about "on the gas tank" on this one. Average street bike gets 50-60 mpg, so 30 gallons (25 gallons in the cans plus the five in the tank) means we're trying to carry enough gas to travel 1600-1700 miles, with no mention of food or anything else for the trip. To each his own, but to me it seems like cross-country travel (with food or without) in a shtf situation shouldn't be anywhere near "Plan A".

In some rare and specific situations you may genuinely need to run, but it should be running TO something. This always sounds like constant, recurring dreams of running AWAY from everything.

Again - whatever; and to each his own. I think I'm done trying to give dad advice to near-70-year-old internet kids.

I guess Melvin's back to fantasies of living high on the hog on long pig.
