Scenario. Its the end of the world. No stores. No Trade. No civilization. MAd Max style. You hear over hear on the radio that a gang of 1000 people are coming your direction and that they are going to kill and rape everyone in your small group.

You find a car that looks okay and filled with gas. But there is no engine oil... what would happen if you use vegetable oil as the engine oil?

In The Walking Dead, cars never require oil or any type of maintenance so I think you will be ok

Save some for lubrication for your rear end because you'll need it when you get to your mechanic's shop.
