Well...fuel economy and reliability, combined with minimal electronic hurdles would probably steer me towards one of two vehicles. A) A 1980's-era Honda CVCC or B) A 1970's Pinto - In a pinch, either of these could be made into a rolling incendiary device with no further modifications, they are natural fire bombs.

If silence is a prerequisite, I am finding a Tesla dealership and hauling one off.

Last, but not least, an amphibious car - the Gibbs Aquada.

I'd want a van for space and storage and other people.

Good point of gas storage. At the very least, we'd need gas cans in the trunk, or strapped to the back. Lets just hope it doesn't get too hot.

My next door neighbor just sold their little fishing boat. They had been working on it so the gas tank was sitting out next to it. My first thought was what kind of car it would be able to fit an auxiliary tank in the back but would be gas efficient enough to not use it all in a single day.

The Hybrid Escape is a good option but what are the option that you find one with keys in it?? Chances are we're going to be on the move and need to 'borrow' something that we find along the way... Hybrid cars, well most cars manufactured nowadays are a little more difficult to hotwire given the fact that the keys have a built in chip that helps to identify the car to the key and prevent theft. Given that bit of information I would try to find an older model Jeep with 4WD that still looks like it's in good shape and hope it has a full or almost full tank. If all failed, I would go with a car that I had already driven in my lifetime so that I would know where all of the important gadgets are located like the lights and the windshield wipers. I realize that it might not take too long to get used to the a different model but there is something to be said for ingrained memory when pulling up to a fuel pump and automatically knowing what side the gas tank is located on. Just a few things to think about...

Hmmmm, I think I would like the H3 that Tallahassee had in Zland, but I don't know, the gas issue is definitely a thing. I am thinking that a Hybrid Escape or something SUV-ish but not a total gas-hog

One that is good on gas but also rugged enough to run over zombies & keep on going.

Original SW on 1/1/11 - 204.4 lbs.

Original GOAL ACHIEVED! 70 lbs. banished!

Time zone: EST

New SW on 1/1/19 - 204, back to the very beginning
New GW by 12/31/20 - 135

Mind the Gap! between what we know we should do and what we actually choose to do.

Ok... so you need to make it a couple of hundred miles through zombie territory to what is hopefully a safe zone. What kind of car do you use? A jeep? A Humvee? A Prius?

I go back and forth between some sort of big, strong SUV type, and a little, good on gas car. After all, if you have to stop get out of your SUV and refill it with gas (that will be hard to find) every hour, you're increasing your risk of being attacked.
