3rd. Scythe13 £5 Project
This is a much more "long term" project, but you'll thank me, and buy me a cupcake because you got started.

This will be a 5 month project, so hold on to your pantaloons! We'll do a monthly breakdown, as well as a monthly step by step system.

Legal disclaimer: Don't do illegal stuff. It's naughty. I don't like people that illegalling! I joke about it, but it is just a joke. No naughty-illegalling!!!

Month 1.

1. A 5 litre Jerry can from petrol station (£4.99)
2. A penny coin to throw at some unsuspecting child (£0.01)

Step 1.

Go to petrol station (preferably one without security cameras, that you never want to return to) and tell them you've broken down. Beg for a Jerry can to 'borrow' and remember to use the words "I promise I'll bring it right back." Works best if you look smart and not like a crack-hound!

Step 2.

Offer the person behind the till £5.00 for fuel, once you have the Jerry can, then fill up with £5.00 of fuel. This is a successful day.

Step 3.

Run away in the direction you came from, otherwise it looks like you just scammed the people that work there.

Step 4. Feel ashamed that you didn't get to throw that coin at an unsuspecting child.

Step 1a.

If you cannot manage to blag the fuel can, you will need to buy one. This is recommended, as we are all law abiding citizens.

Step 2a.

Relax and drive home. You're work is complete for the month. Well done grasshopper!

Step 2b.

While driving home, wind down your window and launch your penny change at some unsuspecting child. You get 10 points if you can knock the ice cream from their hands!!!

Month 2.

Step 1.

Same as month 1.

Month 3.

Step 1.

Use petrol can from Month 1, and place £5.00 of fuel into it.

Month 4.

Step 1.

Use petrol can from month 1 and 2. Distribute a new £5.00 into month 1 can. Place remainder of fuel into can 2.

Month 5.

Step 1.

Pour £5.00 worth of fuel into fuel can from month 2.

Step 2.

Admire your new cache of about 11 litres of fuel. Magic! A typical 5 litre fuel can (the green or black ones from petrol stations) can hold nearly 6 litres of fuel.

Well done, you've just created a cache of fuel. If you've not even got a normal Jerry can, would you like to explain the reason why not? I know many places don't allow a certain amount of fuel to be stored, but that's the fun of being a prepper! Learning to solve problems!!!

If possible, try to get an ice cream in there somewhere!!!

I'm sure that you could have made that a lot smaller and more sensible.

Jerry cans can be bought cheaply from car boots and you are not abusing some kind hearted chap who will then not listen to someone with a real fuel issue.

and for those that couln't make sense of this.

1) Buy and extra £5 of fuel a month and store it.
2) Make sure you cycle it but using your cache in your car and filling your store instead of the car every three months.

Save the 1p every month until you can buy an ice cream for yourself.

This one is not for me either,... we have such a small number of stations anyway, we need to keep them happy,..and with the distances between stations, SD said we might be the one in real trouble one day
