Hello Brad Buchanan,

Store outside....SAFER!
Keep shaded .....Less evaporation.
Use a non metallic drum, no rust issues. Provide the bottom, or the lowest part of the vessel with a drain, just like you would do for an air compressor, for removing condensate.
Do not draw from the bottom of the vessel.
Filter the product before goes into the vehicle tank if you can. That is how I would do it! It all adds up to piece of mind.

Hey Guido!

I have a couple of blue plastic barrels that were originally used for sausage casings. I use them for water and have not found a source of info as to which plastic drums could contain gas safely.

Hello Brad Buchanan,

Weed trimmers have plastic gas tanks. Gas station underground tanks have been fiberglass for years.
That is why I suggested a non metallic tank. I don't know where you need to look for one that would be O.K. for gas though. I would think that somebody has something that would work.
