Air tight. That's the only way to store it.
i.e. don't leave the pump in the tank for longer than your pumping.

E100, that has to be expensive since you have to pay alcohol tax and all....

Pretty sure he doesn't care what the price is. See 2016 991 GT3 RS... He/She must be a very hard working and accomplished individual. Not lucky.

Hey just saw this post lol, and I'm a He.

The E100 I bought was pure so yeah the alcohol tax was factored in. Yeah overall it's the only way I can get ethanol here in Canada and so far it's quite nice.

And yep I guess you could say I'm quite accomplished, spent many many years in university getting a degree, so all is well

Well, I was referring to the return on investment as far as expensive. In the states E100 costs around 500 USD for 5 gallons. That is the cost of product, that does not include excise use tax, licensing fees or permit fees. The additional licensing is due to it being fit for human consumption and they are typically only sold through research chemical companies that require federal research licensing. So a 7500 dollar 55gal barrel could easily cost 10-12 thousand.

How much was the barrel in Canada? I thought there were more industrial regulations there.

Ok I'm going to assume now that the "E100" I bought was 99.99999% pure because I didn't pay that much for it. I will double check the receipt for "alcohol taxes" but yeah I paid under $1000 for 300L
