Cleaning them would be a pain, especially with the epa regulations?

Or do they not make any difference?

I would take them out on our work yard and use one of our strong cleaning agents. Just seems like it would be a bit of a pain but they would work.

I can honestly say though although I joke about it i wouldn't store e85 myself as usually I don't go conservative on my car once it's broken in. Wouldn't want any bad fuel at like 36 psi and decent timing and 11.8 ish afr

They have tough plastic 55gal drums so to speak that are cheap that are used by a lot of guys to store methanol at the track...it seems to work well since it doesn't sweat as bad as metal with the changes in temp, plus they are easier to move around empty. JS,

I had 6 VP 6 gal fuel jugs but I loaned 2 out but with the wagon I'd fill it up, 12gals then fill all 6 jugs which gave me another 3 fill ups before I'd drive back to Maclenney. For a guy who only drives on weekends this can last a long time and I'd never had issues with moisture.

Just don't leave your drums in high moisture areas and you will not have a problem. We have a whole warehouse filled with oil drums, lubes, grease etc.... The thing that will harm them the most is standing water. You need to make sure to keep them clean to prevent contaminants. Temperature is not that much of an issue for us. Any garage would work or shed if it was dry enough.

Just burn it clean. Kerosene works wonders.

Well the Perrin turbo blanket and heat shield are finally installed. Start to finish was just shy of two hours. Getting the TMIC back on proved to be a challenge. Big thanks to Rob for getting me over the hump. Everything is back together and it's time to put some miles on the odometer.

50 miles in and the STI hasn't exploded. I guess I managed to do something right.

Perrin heat shield is touchable after my initial ride. Certainly an improvement over the OEM heat shield.
