    Default 30gal plastic fuel drums

    Lookin for a source between Anch-Wasilla. Someone has been 1 step ahead of me the past several weeks in scooping them up.

    Looking for (2) 30gal fuel drums.

    Thanks!
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed

    Fish Creek sales had 15's. At least they are easier to handle.

    Yeah for $100 a piece!

    No one wants to steal a 30gal drum of fuel.

    You can put maybe a pint of Polaris snogo oil in your gas to turn it blue. Then use a permanent Sharpie to write "100LL Aviation Fuel Only", on the jug. I've done that and never had problems with my gas going missing.

    In my experience, 100LL is highly sought after by young thieves. They think of it like racing fuel for their snogo or ATV/ motorcycles, even their cars. IT would be much better to label it "contaminated fuel".
