Accessories - Approved Fuel Containers and Pumps

Particularly if you happen to live in a high-risk area in terms of power outages, having a stock of fuel for your portable generator could make all the difference for being adequately prepared for any situation in which you find yourself being cut off from the grid. But storing your fuel safely and securely must never be overlooked and the regulations governing what you can and cannot do will invariably be regulated by your local authorities. The American Petroleum Institute has useful information on safe storage and disposal you may wish to consult for appropriate guidance.

So, before doing anything else, go and speak to your local Fire Department. They will be able to advise you about the rules and regulations you will have to abide by to minimize the inherent dangers of storing fuel.

Also, don't forget that gasoline has a limited shelf life even after you have added a fuel stabilizer. According to some people it can last from 3 to 9 months depending on how it is stored. That's a wide variation.

In terms of storage, below you can find a selection of approved fuel containers and pumps.
