Default Re: Using Oil Jugs For Gas : No Opinions - Only Experience.

DTG: I've stored gasoline in 1qt oil jugs and while I had no problem with the plastic breaking down (I only needed to store the gas for 3 days) I did have trouble when the bottle got warm. The bottle puffed up and deformed in a way that was worrying.

After that I switched to 1L soda bottles. These are designed to be pressurized (don't use water bottles, only bottles that had carbonated beverages in them). So even though I still need to release the pressure from time to time in a soda bottle, at least it doesn't radically change shape when it pressurizes.
