Simply so, where should I store my gas cans?
The best method for storing gasoline involves an approved container, keeping it in a well-ventilated shed or detached garage; however, gasoline is most often stored in an attached garage.
Similarly, how do you store gasoline outside? The best way to store gasoline is in a well ventilated area separate from the house. The location should have no electrical equipment, open flames or other sources of ignition present. In addition, the location should be protected from the heat of the summer sun to keep evaporation to a minimum.
Subsequently, question is, can you store gasoline in a plastic container?
Gasoline can last up to half a year if stored in an airtight, clean plastic container. It also works just as well with a metal tank. For complete protection and safety, you may be required to label your gasoline containers.
Should gas cans be vented when stored?
You should ensure that your gasoline is stored in an area that is generally kept at room-temperature. The area where you store your gasoline should be well-vented, to ensure that gas fumes do not build up.
