What is the proper way to store gasoline?
- Use only approved metal or plastic
- Do not store containers in a
vehicle or a living space.
- Store containers in
- Keep containers away from
flames, pilot lights, stoves, heaters electric motors and other sources of
ignition. Vapors can be ignited by a
spark or flame source many feet away.
- Keep containers closed
- Don’t smoke near gas
- Keep containers out of reach
The biggest issue is fumes escaping the container. The liquid itself is stable. If the temperature goes up so does the off
gassing, which is what produces the vapors.
