Why are aviation fuels, race fuels, and even various marine fuels allowed to be kept/transported in 55 gal drums? Why is it safer for commercial transport and storage of gasoline than a homeowner? Even ranchers are allowed to use 55 gal drums for transport and storage if they refill at a Co-op station. ….

I don’t get this one.

I can keep a 100 gal transfer tank of diesel or kerosene in the back of my pickup and no one will say a word. I think the recent MTA accident shows the hazards of gasoline. It may have been an accident but it was more like suicide. An accidental suicide.
