Not trying to say anything but who is going to inspect your house or even try to prosecute you on keeping a 55 gallon drum? Nobody. Just like the mods on your car are for off road use. Does it matter? No. Nobody is going to pursue such a trivial violation. Just my .02 as a law student.
Very very very true! I know no1 is going to bother me, but the fact that it is a dangerous way of storing fuel. I'm thinking of a few other options of getting like a real small enclosed trailer and keeping a few drums in it. That way it's enclosed and very portable and secured! Ahhh. Now lets here everyones comment son how that is such a dumb idea ahahahhahaha

That sounds even more dangerous lol. Just get the 55 gallon drum or store it in multiple 5 gallon drums but either way it's going to be a pita. The price you gotta pay for e85 I guess

you are never going to please everyone, and in the end, it is a risk assessment, just like anything else anyone does. people take risks, break the laws, etc., etc., but its completely a personal decision what risks you are willing to take.


for the record, i would totally feel comfortable storing a 55gal drum in my garage. i would probably buy/build a pedestal so it was not sitting directly on the ground (for moisture purposes), and i would definitely keep it away from any wiring, outlets, or other possible ignition sources...but other than that, i wouldn't worry about it at all. that is just me personally though...

How is keeping fuel in a trailer, away from my house, more dangerous than keeping it in my house?

That is true! And it's going to be a risk regardless of what I do so you are totally right! And their are plenty of people who take this risk all the time an store race fuel and or E85 at their homes in 55+gallons.

Oh, I was just joking. Sorry I failed at alluding to the sarcasm. I think either way would suffice and you shouldn't have any problems.

Are you considering E85 because of the higher octane rating? If so, why don't you look into Alcohol injection kits? You can find alcohol pretty much anywhere. That, and you'll increase your fuel economy by using 93 octane gas and again due to the benefits of Alcohol injection.

Higher octane
Better fuel economy
No need to store huge drums of fuel

Just a thought.

That is why I want it and I don't wanna do alcohol injection. Don't want to have a huge tank of alcohol in my trunk.

You can just use the washer fluid tank like most people do. You can even wash your windshield with the boost juice lol

Eh, yeah I heard of people doing that too, but that's such a small tank. Refilling it would be so often. Grant it, it's not hard to refill it at all, but you get my point. Idk just never was a real big fan of meth/alcohol injection. But maybe I'll look into it a little more.

there are pros and cons to meth just like anything else. i personally am not a big fan of meth injection. it is a good option for some people, but if E85 is even a possibility (even if it is really only E70), it is a much better option. you will not only make more power than you will on meth injection, you don't have to worry about the so-called "failsafe" failing.

Yeah, I'm not really considering meth/alcohol but probably something I'll look into. E85 is my first choice!

I'd rather refill the alcohol (50/50 mixture is safe) often than have to go to a limited range of gas stations and/or have to order 50gal drums of gas and store them in my garage. Also, find me someone with a properly installed meth injection kit that has experienced a catastrophic failure.

To each his own, I suppose.

i can provide you quite a few people actually...one of them actually had a failsafe connected to the BCS to limit boost in case of failure, and it still blew the motor.

The way most are set up is that it only sprays during certain amount of boost. I have mine setup to start spraying at 5psi and goes to full spray by 10psi. I don't really drive my car that hard so I don't have to refill that much. Also, the benefits of e85> 93+meth. If I had an e85 fill station I would go straight e85 instead of 93+meth.

Didn't do any research on it yet, but did hear a rumor about every Shell gas station acquiring E85 or some sort of Ethanol fuel within the next year or so. Anyone hear anything? Or is this just a typical bs rumor?

Looks like the gov may mandate 15% laced pump gas instead of our normal 10%, nothing on Shell though.
