Diesel fuel is much more economical and safer than any other fuel available
Liquid propane lasts “forever”Isn’t

Diesel fuel has a very long life. In our experience, 1 year is not out of the
ordinary and when treated with diesel fuel treatment up to two years is not
unusual.We know from real-life
experience that we can return to a diesel engine that has not been run in a
year, change the batteries, maybe a fuel filter and RUN THAT ENGINE with no
it is true that liquid propane has a very long shelf life when you have to have
the quivalent amount, in relation to the amount you would need for diesel fuel,
do you REALLY want that mch of a volatile product sitting on the shelf?Remember that you need 2.36 gallons of LP gas
to equal one gallon of diesel fuel.Over
twice the amount of disel fuel. ( Please note that 1 gallon of LP gas equals
4.23 pounds at 60 degrees Fahrenheit.)

neighborhoods service right?
A:Not if you want to use it for standby power.When the tornado hits the main service or the
