Don't forget garden hoses. They're like whips with one end fastened or caught on something.

Doug, spuds... I built the siphon to run directly to the carb inlet and not just to transfer gasoline....originally... I was given a 3500w Honda generator without a fuel tank... thought this had more utility than buying a new tank...a lot cheaper...

I noticed that a few of my neighbours have their recycling bins on the front porch and many have decorations out too. Leaves haven't been raked either and many of the trees still have leaves that will probably xome down, hopefully without the limbs their attached to. It's going to be messy.

Keep a close eye on your street gutters. Keep them clear of debris. It might prevent flooding.

Thats a nice setup Les.

My VW transporter has an electric pump mounted in engine compartment,I can unhook from carb and into a can,works real well.Its a difficult vehicle to siphon from.

I cant afford to keep it licensed and insured,but it does get use as fuel storage with stabil in the gas.Good for gas storage for sure though.

Have a Honda eu2000I genny,love it,very portable,efficient and QUIET,the Yamaha's along the same line are excellent gennies too,couple Buds have them,fine machines in a small package.

Whatta ya know,just started mine and runs horrible,changed fuel,nope! Needle valve was stuck,go figure,running like a champ again.

Did a little research,recommend putting in some seafoam in fuel too,did that,seafoam is good stuff.Removes deposits pretty well. They are saying to store with seafoam in fuel if you dont empty fuel,so I will pass that along.

I have a bunch of friends on Facebook in NYC who are freaking out over power outages and evacuations. I guess they're using Facebook via their cellphones. I'm not sure because I don't get that either. I would think the cell towers would be down. Anyway, if it's battery powered, they should be saving their batteries.

I think the cell towers should be OK. They're built to withstand a whole lot more wind than Sandy's kite flying winds. I'd also be surprised if the cell towers in the NE didn't have generators to keep them running. At least they do around here ever since Katrina. Even in NO in the middle of Katrina, everyone stranded here could still text.

I'm in the Middle East on a business trip, many of my coworkers are expecting that they will not be able to return home at the end of the week due to flight cancellations.

I've never heard them called that. Oh, you Canadians. Here in the South we call them "Gullies." And whenever we want to describe a really heavy rain we say "A gully washer."


I like that much better, Izzy. most people around here call them gutters or sewers but I like gully.
