Default Re: Gas tank opinions

Pop bottles are polypropylene and will react with fuel, sports/water/milk/vinegar bottles are made with polyethylene which doesn't react with much of anything which is why anything from oil to acid is packaged in polyethylene and it's the same plastic that small engine gas tanks are made from.

Good rule of thumb, if the plastic has an "oily" texture it's polyethylene and safe for gas.
