We are getting ready to build a fuel shed by our barn.
In this shed we will be storing gasoline, diesel, kerosene, and propane.
The kerosene will be stored in plastic jerry cans.
We are moving away from our on grid oil heating system so we are going to repurpose our tank by moving it to the fuel shed.
We haven't decided if we will use the tank for gas or diesel, but we are leaning toward gas becuase we will have far more need for gasoline.
Whichever we use the tank for, the other will go in plastic 55 gallon drums.
We use propane in 20lb conaisters, so they store easily enough.
We have about 10 of them, which is about a years worth of fuel for our stove.
We also keep plenty of 2 stroke oil, stabil or seafoam, and various lubricans (motor and bar oil, LPS 1 and 3, etc).
Rotation is the key.
I use about 20 gallons a month for the truck (Sikorsky pays for a car and gas, so we don't use much gas in the truck for now).
Add to that another 4 gallons in the lawn mower and various other gas powered lawn impliments.
So if I take that fuel from the storage, replenish it when I take it, and keep it stabilized, I think we would have a full supply of good fuel in the event that we were no longer able to replenish it that would last us a couple years.
