I love my turbo cummins I have right now.. but it's a PAIN in the ass finding diesel out in the boonies sometimes.. I'd hate to think about post zombie.

I think a diesel would last for 100's of thousands more miles.. but unless you could process it, or vegetable oil or some shit.. I'd go gasoline?

HEMI!!!!!!!!!

Doesn't require electrical ignition, so no spark plugs. Can also run on other types of fuel and you can make your own bio-diesel from vegetable oil pretty easily. Plus the engine lasts about twice as long and is easier to maintain.

for my zombie bike: yeah, prolly my DR650
For starters it's easier to home cook diesel with the scavenged gasoline and have even more fuel. And breaking into garages assumes that these properties are a) vacant or b) homeowners not willing/able to protect them. The lenth of shtf scenario will determine if gasoline or diesel is the better fuel choice - short term gasoline, indefinite timeframe - probably diesel.

lol. so, realistically, gasoline engines are the choice, then?

My understanding is that diesel stores longer without ill effect. But, I'm no expert.

Well, yes. But more importantly you don't need to know how. First, as long as it's warm enough not to gel, you can use "SVO" aka "straight vegetable oil" if it's clean.

You know what else you can pour into a diesel and it will just run? Motor oil. ATF. Diesel mixed with any of the above. (some people soil themselves at the idea of using ATF but I can assure you it's common for oil change places to "know a guy" who picks up the ATF for free and drives an old truck

A diesel would run on bacon grease if you could filter the junk out first.

pure biodiesel, commonly referred to as B99 is vegetable oil (reclaimed french fry oil, etc) that has had the glycerin removed through a process with lye and alcohol.

So check those lawn mowers you drain to see if I haven't taken the crankcase oil yet.

There was a guy who drove across the country using using fryer oil as fuel. Had a mini lab in his trunk for that filtered it. I'll see if I can find the video.

I would have a ruckus behind a bigger touring bike. That way I can park somewhere then use the ruckus with errands pr tp explore a bit with less gas.

I might ride the Harley so I could be like Larry Underwood...

But I would probably use my custom Zombiepacalypse jeep.

Its dialed, all it really needs is the M60 mount, which would be pretty easy.

I could mow down legions of zombies and save ammo.

Plus I have a high clearance 3 rail motorcycle trailer to haul behind it for the HD, dirtbike and whatever other zombie bike I chose to bring along...

Goldwings have nicely shaped death race 200000 farings.
And I bet I could mount the 60 on a wing also...

I was there, I was 12, Led Zepplin was still making music, you could fight at school and not make national news, both of the Kings were active, was alive, one was singing, getting fat showing off Ed Brown moves, one was winning world championships on a yamaha, and Bob Hannah was the hurricane.


I loved Battlestar Gallactica.
