    I have a horizontal 125 gallon propane tank that I no longer use and was wondering if it could be used to store gasoline. I think I could put a hand pump on it and plug the other holes and put a pressure relief valve on it. If it's not feasible I guess I could make a big BBQ grill out of it. Has...

    I saw this on the news today and found it to be a little disturbing as even if it isnt entirely accurate I think it could deff drive up speculation and increase prices at the pump wether it is true or not entirely true I dont think this article is a good omen of things to come

    People on these forums have said petrol goes off... well after seeing comments on these fourms and looking it up elsewhere. Petrol is stable, it does however oxidize. Most Containers that store petrol are not air tight, they allow in air either as a pressure let off(Incase the tank gets to hot...

    Well, I guess I am done with Sta-Bil. I've used it in some things from time to time, mostly lawnmower gas, and used Pri-G on the boat motors, generators, pressure washers, etc. The stuff that really sits up a long time. Anyways, today I was visiting with my small engine repair mechanic and he...

    Was looking thru the older posts in hopes of finding this and kinda gave up. I've got some good preps for food, now I need a way to cook them.

  11. DIY - Do It Yourself
    This may be a SUPER DUMB question -- but I would rather be safe than sorry. Does anyone see any safety/legal problems with using an ICB Tote for at home fuel storage (obviously, I'm not talking in the house or in the garage) but in a shop building.

    I think we have become acostumed to many commodities that we may find hard to live without. One of the things that I'm sure will need is a fair amount of fuel to get where I'm going and one tank of fuel will not do the job. I've considered a fuel transfer tank, but was told that the fuel will...

    Through a good friend I got my hands on some 200 litre barrels of Jet A1. I intend to use it as fuel for heaters, lamps etc. and even in the old power generator, which runs excellently on paraffin/ keronsene. The data sheet for Jet A1 states that the content is "Kerosine (petroleum)...

    Hey guys - I have a couple of questions about storing Kerosene. I have a kerosene heater that I keep for emergencies, and have always kept a 5 gal jug of Kerosene in the garage. I'm planning to expand to 3-4 jugs and with my new shed thought it would be safer stored in there instead of in the...
