Cars

Post by mozart » Sat Apr 06, 2019 8:29 am

I havent seen any mention of what sort of vehicles people have. If you look at WWII there where restrictions and car supply was stopped as well as the sale of tyres. So I think it is a good idea to have a new a car as possible or restore an old one. Get your car regularly serviced or learn how to service your car yourself and make sure you have good tyres and always have you tank full of petrol and keep a large can of petrol on standby. In WWII they introduced rationing so if you car isn't in order you probably won't be able to get a car or tyres of mechanical repairs. The only exception is usually doctors in times of emergency. So get your vehicles in order.

As soon as I can afford one I will buy an electric car. Any conflict in SE Asia would totally screw our fuel supplies, as most of it comes from Singapore now. But nothing short of EMP will stop solar panels from working. Even a big hailstorm can be protected from by just plywood.

If our fuel supplies are gone how do we get the coal to the power station to make the electricity?

If the fuel supply goes to shit the government will introduce rationing but there will probably still be fuel of some sort in short supply. During WWII recreational driving was prohibited in some countries. Tyres run out really fast and are also rationed. In Venezuala at the moment there are no tyres so you need to get new tyres and a spare set while you can. Also mechanical repairs would probably still be available but the prices can go through the roof. Electric cars can fail in extremes of heat and cold. Cars before the 1960s some of them dont rely on electronics so will maybe survive an EMP attack.
