4,000 gallons of gas would last me 10 years with a car that gets 40 mpg driving 16,000 miles/year.

Costco was $1.49 today. ideally I'd spend $6,000.

after internet search. Anyone know how to do this? I saw UAG was low, but i didn't really understand it.

obviously, I don't have or want a 4,000 gallon tank.

So you don't want to buy a giant tank large enough to hold that much gas...but you want to buy that much gas? I'm confused...you kind of need to have a place to store it if you want to buy it.

Not to mention shelf life of gas is horrible...I don't know if it's possible to make it last 10 years and still be usable. Usually about a year is the best you can get out of it.

That gas would be stale after the first year. Hell, you might as well buy barrels of crude oil and store them LMAO

You want this

I have no experience with it, showing a price of a little over 2 buck a gallon. Right now the prices do not seem to be that great to tell the truth.

their card is "out of stock".

Also, their website is one of the worst I have ever seen and i inspires zero confidence, typos and all.
