So, from what I am hearing thus far:

It is all dangerous, but we are conditioned to believe that one method is more safe than another. If I had a boat with a 100 gallon tank sitting next to my house it would be safe. If I had 2 55 gallon drums in my back yard, in their own structure and as far from everything else in my yard as possible it would be a recipe for death and destruction.

Again, I just don’t understand the double standard and am REALLY trying to understand where the risk is actually applied. The double standard is what is killing me because there is no specific evidence that applies in all situations. I am wanting to store fuel safely, but I can’t find specifics that apply uniformly so I can make a truly educated decision on how to store it.
