No, I agree. I am sure that, with more details, you can express it better. I never expect the asker to use/take an answer otherwise than as a (hopefully) good suggestion :). Thank you for your note!

Asker: Thanks Anca; that's the idea, but I don't think one would express it quite that way.

In response to last discussion from asker, how about "without fluids" or "dry"?

Asker: Yes, I'm sure that is what it is about. However, doesn't "sans irrigation" mean that only the water supply is either disconnected or shut off, while, perhaps, the fuel supply might be connected?
