I probably wouldn't since it might be dangerous, but I've thought about it.

Never had to. Chicago is the worst, and all I need to do is go home to escape it (I live in NW Indiana).

No. If this ever became necessary I think I would just park my car and not drive at all.

The question could be taken a number of ways...

Would I carry 15 gallons of fuel in my trunk while driving to California to avoid spending an additional $7.50 for fuel ???

Well if I'm that tight on funds... I should consider staying home....

Would I carry fuel cans in my trunk...

Of course... the Gas station don't deliver !!!
5/10 gallons......Car "OK"
10 gallons----50 gallons use the truck.

driving your tractor or riding your lawnmower to the gas station seems "Goofy"

I guess however if you live in the city, next door to the gas station then the walk might do you good.
