I heard of spraying something in a fuel jug that is heavier than air and keeps the air from the fuel to keep it from getting moisture in it. I am thinking about getting a 55 gal. drum since tower is cheaper than the hobby shops around here, even with the haz-mat shipping which is way to high. So does anyone know what the stuff is and where I can get it?

Thanks,
Joel

it's compressed Argon or Nitrogen and
retailwise, often sold in wine shops.

However, you'd REALLY!!!!!!!!!! be better off
getting a whole mess of empty 1gl plastic fuel
jugs and pumping the entire drum out in one
quick session.

well I only got about a dozen empty fuel jugs, but my dad has a big bottle of argon for welding. I thought about it but thought it would be too light. I shoulda looked at a periodic table to find out it is 2x heavier than air. I am going to try to find a couple cases and will only get a drum if I can't find any for a reasonable price.

Thanks,
Joel
