gasoline storage

  1. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Does anyone know if knock offs of milsurp Jerry cans are any good for 12-24 month storage of gasoline? These are running $25 each right now at Sears/Kmart. I would be adding fuel stabilizer and storing in a shed. Mainly concerned about whether these cans seal tightly and hold up over time...

    I'm in central Georgia, so winter temps in the 20's with occasional dips to the teens and summer temps in the 90's. It's fall, so yesterday (25 Oct) I was out blowing leaves using gasoline purchased and treated with Sta-Bil on 23 July 2015. That's 15 months of storage in a shed with exposure...

    How much better is non-ethanol gasoline regarding shelf life?

    Being new to the idea of long-term storage and other survivalist ideas, one thing that I actually just learned reading these very forums is that gasoline spoils! It never occurred to me before. I've never actually had a tank of gas last longer than two weeks. Apparently there are several...
