Without fuel, they were nothing..thundering machines sputtered & stopped..Only those mobile enough to scavenge, brutal enough to pillage would survive. The gangs took over the highways, ready to wage war for a tank of juice

The only reason I put a new set of Michelin MXV+4 Energy's on my 960 last fall is because of an in store rebate at the time. $125 per tire was a bargain I couldn't pass up. Those same tires run close to $160 each today.
