    Does anyone know where I can find some gas containers preferably made of plastic and is 30+ gallons? The cheaper the better of course. Thanks.

    If you have a food industry in your town you may be able to pick up 55 gal poly drums for next to nothing, or dumpster dive um lol. Just have to wash them out.

    I have to keep my eye open. Is plastic better than the old steel drums?

    Depends on what you're using it for. Plastic will last longer than metal, but you can't heat plastic, as in making a burn barrel or a still or barbeque etc. etc.

    I am just looking for some containers to store a little fuel for the generator.
