When the grid's down, the gas pumps are down too, so with EV, gasser, or diesel, you're out of luck once your stockpiles are gone. Diesel can be stored for years in bulk 'fuel oil' tanks, so you can have a pretty big stockpile if you're willing to pay for it. You can stretch your gasoline stockpiles a long way if you make your own ethanol and just use gas for starting, or you can be self-sufficient with Bio-D or electric. After seeing this EV push trailer, I had an idea: http://insideevs.com/explained-mitsubishi-miev-range-extender-story/ My idea after seeing that is to get a Ninja 250 and one of these: https://www.amazon.com/TMS-%25MotorcycleStand-SC1307A-Motorcycle-Trailer-Carrier/dp/B005XDM0XO You can push the EV around with the motorcycle, or you can park the EV and ride the motorcycle. Just have to make sure the bike's radiator gets enough airflow when riding behind the EV.
