    Default Any Gasoline stations open in Sosua today

    Just tried to get some additional gasoline for a generator today in Cabarete after using it all up over night.
    Both are closed.

    Any stations open in Sosua today?

    Interesting.  Let me add to your sarcasm..........

    Americans didn't like the word pavement, so changed it to sidewalk (to indicate that you need to walk on the side of the road)
    Glasses?  They have to call them eyeglasses, just to emphasize where on the human body you put them.
    Bin?  No it has to be called a waste paper basket.  To illustrate what kind of waste goes in it.
    Horse riding?  No, far too vague.  Let's call it horseback riding.  After all, we need instructions on what part of the horse to sit on.

    And yet they confuse one type of fuel with another.  Gas in it's gaseous form is a fuel.  Gas is also a liquid fuel in America.  Why?

    My generator runs on gas.  And I had the forethought to top off all my tanks before the storm came.

    Lack of prior planning Windy?  Shame on you!

    I don't know winde and sorry but I'm not going out to find out.

    Can you syphon some out of your car? (your "friends" car?) Not a pleasant job but you may not have a choice.

    I bought 400 gallons of diesel for my gen. a couple of days ago and she is happily sucking away on that for almost 24 hours now. It was over 5 days running 24/7 with Erma. I expect to run longer this time.

    If I see and can get to my PN guys I'll ask them but slim chance of my seeing them.

    I had the back up generator full with gasoline and a full five gallons of gasoline for my back up generator. My diesel generator failed, for which I have 10 gallons of fuel. Edenorte had a screw up well before Maria even arrived which depleted my gasoline supply substantially yesterday. The failure of the diesel generator might mean its demise. I will try to repair it myself.

    In the USA gas and gasoline are the same. Diesel, Propane and natural gas are some other fuels along with kerosene. It just is what it is. I didn't come up with it.

    I do not have the ability to chat. I have not lost power and might have enough fuel to last until tomorrow morning.

    This storm is less than IRMA at my location up until this point. This should be about the worst of MARIA in Cabarete for the next two hours. Then it depends upon how much rain there is on the back side.
