  • I have a dual-fuel generator and am stocking propane tanks (which can last indefiitely).

    I wouldn't store gas just to try to play the market as it were.  You're taking a gamble anyway.  And unless you're driving all the time, you'll only save a few bucks here or there.
    It isn't a bad idea if it is priced under 3 bucks

  • Gasoline smells completely different than diesel. Is the can green or red? Red=gas Green=Diesel.

    Well, it smells like gasoline, and it was in a red can, but the latter doesn't mean anything, they could have used a red can for diesel, out of necessity.

    It's just a gallon of gas, not worth taking the chance.  I'll make it a point to put it in the trunk the next time I'm out that way, just have them dump it, get the can back, wash it out and let it dry, problem solved, and I've got my free jerry can.  A lot of rigamarole to go through just for a freebie.

  • Yeah, but it's hard to pass up a "free" item. :cowboy:
    Yes, I have a bad habit of picking up things just because they're free.  A lot of junk is basically what it is.  But I did put together a nice container garden last year, by picking up other people's pots they were throwing out at the curb, and I can reuse them.  Right now I'm composting and fertilizing last year's soil, so I won't have to buy new.
