    If your fuel supplier was correct all the plastic cans from the big box stores auto parts places convenience stores etc would be failing right and left because they are same as these drums.

    Might even be worse if it was soft drink concentrate!

    I took mine to the car wash and thoroughly pressure washed it. Brought it home and flushed and rinsed it several times, then let it dry out good.

    looks like diesel works good with these but what about gasoline? I know most of the 2.5 & 5 gallon cans are the same plastic just different colors. If not good for gas any other suggestions on what to use for 20+ gallons
