Back-up Power System & Gas Gouging Solutions

Howdy All,
James G. sent the below article on how to effectively stop the escalating gasoline price gouging. I've seen similar items on the web, but this makes the most sense in boycotting Exxon and Mobil the rest of this year. Though it could work, the odds are against success simply because too few people unify in such causes that could provide better results for all. Fuel prices will be skyrocketing with all the political unrest in oil producing countries, so try to store at least a barrel of extra fuel if you have the funds and place to do so. Fuel could become priceless if you are dependent upon your generator for electricity or charging a battery bank. At our last BSOSC class, we taught how to make an inexpensive back-up off-grid power system with used batteries, generator, battery rejuvenator and battery charger. You could meet minimal required power needs with such a system for quite an extended period of time...jpf
******************************************************************************************************************************************


This was sent by a retired Coca Cola executive. It came from one of his engineer buddies who retired from Halliburton. If you are tired of the gas prices going up AND they will continue to rise this summer, take time to read this please.

Phillip Hollsworth offered this good idea.
This makes MUCH MORE SENSE than the "don't buy gas on a certain day" campaign that was going around last April or May!
It's worth your consideration. Join the resistance!!!!

I hear we are going to hit close to $ 4.00 a gallon by next summer and it might go higher!! Want gasoline prices to come down?

We need to take some intelligent, united action.
The oil companies just laughed at that because they knew we wouldn't continue to "hurt" ourselves by refusing to buy gas .

It was more of an inconvenience to us than it was a problem for them.
BUT, whoever thought of this idea, has come up with a plan that can Really work. Please read on and join with us!

By now you're probably thinking gasoline priced at about $2.00 is super cheap. Me too! It is currently $3.08 at Arco and Costco for regular unleaded in Salem , Oregon and climbing every week.

Now that the oil companies and the OPEC nations have conditioned us to think that the cost of a gallon of gas is CHEAP at $1.50 - $1.75, we need to take aggressive action to teach them that BUYERS control the marketplace..not sellers.

With the price of gasoline going up more each day, we consumers need to take action.

The only way we are going to see the price of gas come down is if we hit someone in the pocketbook by not purchasing their gas! And, we can do that WITHOUT hurting ourselves.

How? Since we all rely on our cars, we can't just stop buying gas.

But we CAN have an impact on gas prices if we all act together to force a price war.

Here's the idea: For the rest of this year, DON'T purchase ANY gasoline from the two biggest companies (which now are one), EXXON and MOBIL.

If they are not selling any gas, they will be inclined to reduce their prices. If they reduce their prices, the other companies will have to follow suit.

But to have an impact, we need to reach literally millions of Exxon and Mobil gas buyers. It's really simple to do! Now, don't wimp out on me at this point...keep reading and I'll explain how simple it is to reach millions of people!!

I am sending this note to 30 people. If each of us send it to at least ten more (30 x 10 = 300) ... and those 300 send it to at least ten more (300 x 10 = 3,000)... and so on, by the time the message reaches the sixth group of people, we will have reached over THREE MILLION consumers .
If those three million get excited and pass this on to ten friends each, then 30 million people will have been contacted!

If it goes one level further, you guessed it..... THREE HUNDRED MILLION PEOPLE!!!

Again, all you have to do is send this to 10 people. That's all!

(If you don't understand how we can reach 300 million and all you have to do is send this to 10 people.... Well, let's face it, you just aren't a mathematician. But I am . so trust me on this one.

How long would all that take? If each of us sends this e-mail out to ten more people within one day of receipt, all 300 MILLION people could conceivably be contacted within the next 8 days!

I'll bet you didn't think you and I had that much potential, did you! Acting together we can make a difference.

If this makes sense to you, please pass this message on. I suggest that we not buy from EXXON/MOBIL UNTIL THEY LOWER THEIR PRICES TO THE $2.00 RANGE AND KEEP THEM DOWN. THIS CAN REALLY WORK.

Sounds great if we can get enough people involved.

Also, Lindsey Williams has noted on Alex Jones show among other top analysts that Gas will reach upwards of $10 dollars a gallon this year alone. Expect $6-$9 dollars a gallon by mid summer if the middle east erupts into further chaos. This will literally destroy any hope of economic growth in the USA and Europe.

So we have to start looking at producing our own ethanol. A person can make 5-10 gallons in just a few hours time in their own back yard. There are ethanol stills for sale online for $125-$200 depending on how many gallons of fuel you want to make. You can also make your own cheap ethanol still for about $50 dollars, plans are easy to find online. I will go back through my bookmarks and post all that I can about making your own fuel.

We can also turn to cheap electric cars and bikes. For short runs to town and back an electric small car or bike can save you a lot of money in the long run. They are not expensive to build yourself, but they are also available for sale as well.

Woodgas is also an alternative for running your vehicle on. Worth checking out those videos online on youtube. Wood gasifiers.

Car pooling and planned trips to the store and getting everything you need at once without making 5 trips will help cut back on fuel costs as well.

There are also the hydrogen units which help increase mileage as well. These are also for sale or you can build them yourself.

It will truly come to build your own, make your own fuel, grow your own food or else do without.

We can make it with some adjustments to our lifestyle.
You Must Survive. So prepare for it.

Howdy WeSurvive,
I'm glad you have alerted folks to these 3 alternative fuel sources: 1) Ethanol; 2) Wood Gas; and 3) Hydrogen. We have also been researching magnetic, electric bio-fuels like bio-diesel, WVO (waste vegetable oil), pressed seed oil, etc. We have been working on all three of the three you mention, for which I will give a short update report of R&D for each:
1) Ethanol...The far and away best book on ethanol is Alcohol Can Be A Gas by David Blume, which we have in the BSOSC library. Building an alcohol/ethanol fuel still has been on our agenda for couple of years. It has kept getting pushed back with more urgent projects. There are good still plans in this book. We have a couple of guys wanting to start building one in our shop if they can ever get time. We have most of the materials already that will be needed. I guess we need one person with time and passion for building an ethanol still to get that project off the ground. We will be more than happy to let any BSOSC members attend and assist in a workshop on this project.
2) Wood Gas...This is a very high priority project for us. Now that we have proven we can build a highly efficient wood gasifier to burn the gases in a heat exchanger for a hot water heating system and generation of domestic hot water, we are ready to move to the next phase of building a gasifier to generate gases to run engines, be they stationary generator or vehicle engines. We are hooked up with some very knowledgeable guys in this area which will help get this system developed rapidly. All we have to learn on these is how to fabricate the most efficient filtering and cooling system to make the gases safely usable.
3) Hydrogen...We have hydrogen generator kits and auto installation kits in our SOS General Store. These are high quality units Mac put together. We had the plates precision laser cut from higher grade, thicker stainless steel than others use. We also put together an optional nice auto installation kit for the hydrogen generator kits. Mac is a good info source on both of these since he is running one on his car.
4) Bio-fuels...As you know, Mac is making bio-diesel. We have a processor we never have hooked up. We have done a good bit of research into oil seed presses and algae bio-fuel in addition to WVO. There is good potential for oil seeds as a raw material supply if we work out a deal with a farmer to exchange fuel for the seed crop. The beauty of this process is that there is no waste. The pulp from the pressed seeds is a high nutrient livestock feed.
5) Electric...We considered at one point to build an electric vehicle as many DIY'ers have done. This is still a possibility to look into.
6) Magnetic...Like you, we had worked on a design for an electro-magnetic motor. Our idea was to build it on a stripped down engine block so any car could be converted to the "fuel" source. After much research into magnet suppliers and other components, the project kind of fell by the wayside from lack of funds and time.

Though we have poked at all these alternative fuel sources we have not been able to get them into full production. We can only hope there is sufficient prep time remaining to get at least some of them done. Hopefully, our task force leader and other BSOSC members will want to get involved in as many as possible of these alternative energy project developments, because we will share the progress with all...jpf
