April 12, 2012 – 252 days Until Baktun 12

Survivalist Tip:  Aside from tires, perhaps the most important feature of your vehicle is the engine.  A vehicle without a fully-functioning engine is like a microwave oven without a key panel – what good is it?  As with the battery and tires, you need to care for your vehicle’s engine through preventative maintenance.  Here’s a basic checklist: 

  • Keep the air filter clean
  • Change the oil regularly, at least every 6 months
  • Check the spark plugs
  • Check the coolant / anti-freeze fluid
  • Add a bottle of gasoline treatment every time you fill up the tank

It’s not that time-consuming, but it is really that simple and absolutely necessary.  If you have to evacuate your home, a well-maintained engine will help you escape, traverse the barren wasteland, climb over dead bodies and ultimately make it to somewhere safe.  Besides, the power from a fully-functioning engine will help you crash through a phalanx of celebrities trying to steal your vehicle and your chocolate.
