    I've sent some suggestions. Don't know what else to help you with.

    Siphoning gasoline, from what I have read on line and seen on Youtube, is not an easy thing to do from modern vehicles.

    Sorry windeguy, I don't have much use for gasoline so I only have a 1 gallon container of the stuff. You're welcome to it if you need it.

    I might have 4 or so gallons of gasoline for my lawn mowers. You are welcome to it but getting it prob not worth it.

    In the past I found it more advantageous to use the generator to charge the batteries, and then use the inverter until the batteries get low again.

    My 8 batteries would run 17+ hours, and only take 4 hours to charge with the 4 kw generator.

    The Texaxo station is closed as well as the station going east on the south side of Rt. 5 after Ocean Village. The only gas station in Sosua that was open as of 3:00 pm was the station in Pueblo Nuevo (on the South [left] side of Rt. 5) about 1/4 mile past the entrance to Charamicos heading west towards Puerto Plata. The road up to that point was very clear up until about 4:00. Not sure if they are still open, I'm trying to make some calls to find out for sure.

    Nothing beats a failure but a try

    I also appreciate the offer. Looks like I will make it through the night.

    Of course that is what I do normally. Unfortunately, my currently working gasoline generator does not charge batteries as quickly as my diesel one would if it were working.
