Many years ago, I used to be a travelling salesman selling to financial institutions. One of my trips took me to Atlantic City where I stayed overnight . I had neglected to fill up with gas as was my usual habit. Lo and behold, the Atlantic City area was hit by a big snow storm that resulted in power outages. It was impossible to fill my almost empty gas tank.
Wanting to get back to Paramus to see how my family was doing, I bravely set forth on the trip home seeking a gas station that was open. Alas and alack, there was none until I entered the Garden State Parkway heading north. While there was still no power, one enterprising station had a novel idea and supplied their own power to the gas pump and was offering 10 gallons to each customer.
How did he do that without electrical power, you might ask? Being mechanically minded, he had put a car along side of a pump and jacked up the power wheels. He took off the tire closest to the pump and then took off the cover of the gas pump itself. He then hooked up a fan belt to the car wheel and the pump wheel and thus was able to deliver gas to stranded motorists.
I don't know if such an idea is feasible in today's modern world, but we might have some good mechanics that can figure it out?
