Just a few NOTES here:

1. Gasoline does NOT cause Rust in Steel Cans. It is the Water than get
in the Gas, and then separates out and sinks to the bottom, that causes
rust in Steel Cans.

2. If you SEAL the Steel containers, then no water will get in, and it
will NOT cause any rust to form inside the SEALED container.

3. If you want Gasoline with NO Ethanol in it, go out to your local
Airport and buy some 80/87 Low Lead Aviation Gasoline. The FAA does NOT
allow ANY ethanol in AVGAS, PERIOD.

4. If you buy AVGAS, you do NOT need StaBil in it, to keep it from
breaking down. If you then store it in any Kind of SEALED Container,
it will store for YEARS, with no degradation.

5. Diesel can be stored for DECADES in SEALED containers with no
degradation. Again, it is the water that separates out of the fuel
that causes ALL the storage problems with diesel, including any Bug
contamination. The bugs live and grow on the fuel/water boundary.
No water, No Bugs.

There are sealed containers and there are SEALED containers.  A high quality
steel jerry can tightly closed with a perfect gasket is probably SEALED.  The
plastic cans you buy at Home Depot are never really sealed.  Mine normally leak
a bit at the cap, even when tightly closed because there are no gasketed
surfaces.  I also suspect that they ooze a bit right through the plastic.  I
know for a FACT that they breath a bit on hot days because I can smell the faint
odor of gasoline.

Indeed.  Which is why I spec'd GI Gas cans. Not GI TYPE gas cans.

Ive had GI Type cans and while some are ok..others..primarily Chinese
ones...are crap.

The newer NATO cans are pretty good too.

not only narrow-minded and dull, but also just stupid.

WTF are you talking about?

I keep a 2gal plastic can for my lawn mower.  That's it.
 

Please show me where I said any such thing!


You don't read very well.


Cash isn't a problem.  I generally have enough in my pocket to buy enough gas
to get across country a few times.


You clearly missed my point.


...obvious.

Odd..I believe you mentioned a '5 gallon can"

If thats not true, then you are even dumber than I originally thought.

So my friend..hows the view from up there in the clouds?

From your posts..it would appear that you will simply drive whatever
distance it takes to find an open fuel station, whip out cash and fill
up.  No matter how far, nor no matter how unfriendly the territory
between you and it is.

That question speaks volumes. Sadly.

Good on you lad!

We all teach what we can, and learn from others.

Failure to do so makes one a very poor human being and at worst..a
statistic.

I prefer not to be a statistic.

Ive mentioned before how I took care of my block when the Coalinga
Earthquake leveled most of the town.

One assumes someone on your block will be forced to take care of you.
