TL:DR unlike most countries, Australia doesn't keep a strategic petrol reserve. It said within 2-3 weeks Australia would be out of petrol...
But I fill up around once per quarter in my car and never in my electric motorcycle, so it'd barely affect me.
However, once petrol runs out, we're talking end of civilisation type scenarios. Not just no driving, but no food to supermarkets, no police on the roads, and nobody driving to work, probably even not by public transport, as its unlikely to run with most public transport staff unable to get to work.
In such a situation, I feel driving an electric car would be suicide, as someone would just carjack you.
What are your thoughts on such a scenario? What would you do? I'd get out of town to our rural holiday home early - just when riots were starting, and try to ride it out.
