How long can you keep 110 gas in a jerry can caped tightly? If a jerry can is no good, what can you use for a storage container smaller than a barrel?

If the can seals tightly so no moisture can enter and if you put a small amount of conditioner in it, it should last for many many months if it is stored away from the heating and cooliing of the direct sun light.

I was told by a race car driver that shelf life was 2yrs. on 114, keep it in a stable temp. Your plastic can is ok, but put a stick of 2x10 under it on a cement floor,to keep the moisture away hope this helps ////////

use a steel race can that the fuel comes in..... Make shure you seal it tight, no moisture keep on a shelf or off the ground by useing a wooden pallet to keep it off the cement floor...It will last at least a good year...to 2 years, keep it in a cool but dry area.... alky or methnol is even more fusy....it absorbs moisture fast...but will last about a year....in same conditions
