Fuel is one of the four basic necessities for survival. It is an important consideration in our quest to prepare. We need to be able to heat our homes, cook our food, and power vital equipment. Fuel gives us the ability to maintain the standard of living we enjoy. This chapter provides you with the education required to understand plausible options, how to safely use them, and how to store them appropriately.
Fuels can be extremely dangerous. We cannot stress enough the importance of using wisdom in your use and storage of fuels. Be wise–Don’t do stupid things! Place the safety of your loved ones before any other objective. Never store a flammable or combustible fuel in any building that you can’t afford to have burn down. Always judiciously follow manufacturer guidelines when storing or using any fuel.
