I am anxious to get my fuels out of my garage. I am a little worried about the heat in summer but it has got to be better than the garage. FWI I have plastic ventless cans and I could replace with metal if necessary. Mar 8, 2. JDeerekid Platinum Member. I think the big thing would be venting. If it is located out in the sun I am sure the cans with want to expand if not vented. Other than that I don't see a real problem. Mar 9, 3. CurlyDave Elite Member. I have tried to think of outdoor storage for gas, but every time I try to come up with something I keep coming back to the idea that it just giving neighborhood kids, vandals, vagrants, a fuel supply to further their tendency to play with matches.

And I did have one or two fire extinguishers at the other end of the truck bed not that they would have helped much if the gas had gone boom but they made me feel better.

It was not easily seen. I would rather have it out there than in the garage. On the place now I keep the fuel on the north side of the barn in either in a locked truck bed box in a Rubber Maid out door cabinet or just under one of the bed boxes.

In all cases the cans are out of the sun light due to being shaded Yardstash Outdoor Storage Deck Box Xl Data by the barn. Later, Dan. Mar 9, 7. Mar 9, 8. As far as storage, ventilated shed as far from house as possible, no electricty. Mar 9, 9. LBrown59 said:.

I'd rather loose this than this in a fire so I moved my full supply out of the garage into the storage building. Put some vents in the 10'x14' metal shed. Mar 9, NuBota Gold Member.
