storage tanks

Does anyone have any experience with storing the bio in an old 275 gallong fuel tank? I was told it will rust them out?

think it will be an issue of how clean your tank is. if there is rust in there, bio will loosen it, it's pretty good at cleaning stuff out...

B100 will polymerize just like veg oil will if you store it in a steel tank. Go with the 275 or 330 gallon plastic shipping totes. You can find them cheap on craigslist all the time.
