Default storing e85, experience and facts only please.

So I have done some searching and have basically found a bunch of different opinions all contradicting each others and probably not from any one who drives a car capable of even noticing if their fuel is bad or not........ I live in st george, the closest e85 pump is in mesquite nv, not to far to drive and fill up a barel, but further than I want to drive my car on toyo r888's.

QUESTION:
How long can I store e85 out of sunlight and at cool temps before it goes bad?
Are there any additives that will prolong its storage life? (sea foam?)

Thanks dudes!!!!!

cool thanks man! Is there any reason why I shouldn't keep it in a 55gal drum? Metal wise does the type of container matter?

also I need like a rotory pump. A lot of them say use for fuel but then say not for corrosive materials. . . . ethanol is corrosive right? So what pump would hold up? I dont want the drum or the pump corroding and getting into my fuel system.

ya, they make plastic gravity siphons. That's what I would use. Just a few pumps with your hand and let it go until it's full.
