You don't have the safety know how to store any amount of gasoline over a couple of gallons.
Ummm.. did you read the initial thread and possibly the forum in which this was posted, or did you just read the title and respond?
The thread was posted in the Hawaii
forum, and stated that:
"After last night/this mornings events, wife said" maybe we should have a 5 gal gas tank filled just in case"
First, I am not wanting to store gas because of the rising fuel prices, so price has nothing to do with it.
Second, I am not wanting to store gallons and gallons in case of the world economy meltdown, just a 5 gallon container, in the case of a natural disaster to fill up a vehicle/generator.
Not sure if you are aware, but Hawaii was under a tsunami warning, and subsequently got hit with a small tsunami. When any "natural disaster" is on it's way (i.e hurricane/tsunami/weather generated power outage), everyone runs to the gas stations to fill up. Lines can be hours long, and doesn't help the situation by adding into the already congested streets and possible public panic.
If you don't think I have enough knowledge to store 5 gallons, the I guess I shouldn't even store 2 gallons for my lawn mower.. Then again, I would have to assume you don't think I have enough know how to own a gas powered lawn mower..
Appology accepted if in fact you didn't read the questions asked.... If not, please explain your rationale for your reply, cause not sure what substance your reply has to my thread.
