Any ideas to store a 5 gallon can of gas in an apartment? I have a porch with a small storage unit but I don't know if the gas would freeze out there...
We have a generator because I have nearly 40 cubic feet of freezers that are packed. I have some "space fillers" in one right now, though because we buy a side of beef every November and we are down to 2 roasts and 2 steaks..
Anyway, I keep about 20 gallons of gas for the generator. That could last us over a month of keeping the freezers going (we have a wood burning stove, so I wouldn't need to use the generator for anything else). We'd run it each evening for a few hours to keep the freezers going and that would be it. Last year it used about 1 gallon every few hours.
Rotate your gasoline like you do your food, though. After about 1 year, your gasoline, unless you've added Stabil to it, starts going bad. Each fall we put the gas in the cans into our cars and refill the cans.
