i think they mean something like a basement or a garage. i keep mine in the garage, tho it does get hotter there than in my house sometimes...

refrigerator would be a little overboard, plus you don't wanna get the fumes and smell all over your food. And will your parents let you?

The only trouble with the refrigerator is that the fuel will be extra cool so when you bring it out you should let it warm up before you open it to avoid condensation problems.

Of course you may want to lable it so it doesn't get served as cool-aid at the family cook out.

Life's a journey, NOT a destination.

The garage is a good place
The fuel keeps just fine in the garage. Putting a flamable and poisonous substance in the kitchen just doesn't seem like a good idea.

Storing it in the garage or basement is fine. I would however place a small piece of wood between it and the floor, the same goes for any batteries you want to store there also.

By GAS, I assume you mean Nitro fuel...gasoline in the house would be a No-No (at Best!). No problem storing nitro fuel in the house...keep the containers tightly closed and clean up any spills ( and throw the paper towels away outside!) the might occur whilst transfering fuel from jug to jug and don't store in the same room as any ignition source (open flame).
The refrigerator idea might be overkill...besides...are you sure the light REALLY goes out when you close the door??? Chris

Absolutely, and somebody has to ask the dumb questions sometime or another. (just kidding, we all know you're new to the hobby, so its ok).

I think that unless you have AC, you can do pretty much anything you like... just keep in mind the flammability stuff and poisonous properties, so don't get it on your food or eat it. After all, fuel is $26, but your life is a lot more.
