Here is a disaster preparedness tip: Keep your gas tank at least half full for two reasons,
- You may need your car for travel.
- You may want to use your car to power an AC power inverter like the one below. You plug the inverter into the car’s cigarette lighter and you can charge a cell phone, your laptop, your uninterruptible power supply, or a small refrigerator (to keep essential medicine chilled).
The inverters start at about $20.
