They even give you an MSDS sheet for the former product although mine was clean as a whistle. I was going to use it to water with, but never did and finally gave it to my trash pick up man. Anyway as Chris said, they would make an excellent fuel tank, even has a shut off valve on the bottom. If I were looking for a fueling system, I would certainly look at those tanks, the top has an o-ring seal so water leakage would be nil. You may have to loosen the top when fueling to release the vacuum on it though, but with it being flexible, it shouldnt draw moist air in at night, just let the sides collapse a bit so less chance of condensate forming in the tank.
    Mine is in my barn. I made a pipe with a trap it to vent. I put a piece of screen wire over it yo keep critters out.

    there is a bulk food processor near where I work ( honey and salsa packaging ) and they have those poly tanks inside wire cages for sale all the time.. i've been tempted. heck.. I lie the cages.. would make a neat dog cage for the back of my truck on the smaller ones..

    they also sell 55g drums for 5-10$ too.. and have a MOUNTAIN of them.. probably an AC or two.. stacked 3-5 high
