You don't want oil stored in bare steel barrels due to poly.

I know. I use totes and plastic drums. As I said my buddy was "helping" me. I've already moved it to a plastic drum. My concern is the methanol that was in the drum.

I'm not sure about the methanol, but I would guess it's not a concern.

How much was in the drum? As long as there wasn't much in it & you don't add lye to it I would think it should be ok.
