How long can you store diesel fuel
Corona crisis: fuel prices, stores, canisters
Due to the Corona crisis, the prices for gasoline and diesel are falling, and it has not been so cheap at the pump for a long time. Bargain hunters now sense their chance: buy up and store large quantities. But is that sensible and allowed? The ADAC urgently advises against stocking up on fuel and storing it in the home or even in the vehicle. This is especially true from a safety point of view, but it also makes no economic sense because fuel prices are subject to constant fluctuations.

Are there regulations on the maximum amount of fuel that can be stored in the garage? A distinction must be made here between gasoline and diesel. For the storage of gasoline in garages, Section 17 of the Bavarian Garage Ordinance applies; the regulations in other federal states are likely to be comparable. It says: "In medium-sized and large garages outside of motor vehicles, combustible materials may only be stored in insignificant quantities. In small garages, up to 200 liters of diesel fuel and up to 20 liters of gasoline can be stored in tightly closed, unbreakable containers." Significantly more is allowed with diesel than with gasoline because it is not so easily flammable and therefore not so dangerous. WARNING: Storing fuels at home can be life-threatening - they contain flammable vapors that can easily escape from the reserve containers. If you still want to store fuel in the garage, you should be particularly careful with plastic canisters, as these are not 100% airtight. The fuel properties can change in the process. There is also a risk of poisoning.

Rules for canisters
Any plastic materials are unsuitable for filling with fuel - if they come into contact with gasoline, they may dissolve. Therefore, only containers with special properties and a corresponding marking (RKK approval) are to be used (also for metal containers). The so-called RKK approval (RKK stands for reserve fuel canister) is embossed or cast into the container. This label shows: • Manufacturer • Nominal volume • Approval code (eg 01 / BAM / 3.10 / 3/84) • Month and year of manufacture • Minimum dimensions without cap and accessories • Text: "Only for petrol or diesel fuel for individual use in motor vehicles "• Label with the danger symbol" Flame ".
In the case of plastic canisters, the material will wear off after a few years. The year of manufacture is stamped on the canisters and should be replaced after about ten years. Check metal canisters for rusty spots!
