You are correct, but hey, at least we learned something about osmosis! lol!
I do know that, as has been suggested in the above comments, fuel should be stored in a cool dry and possibly dark place because by whatever processes are involved, fuel can, over time, even sealed, become laden with unwanted moisture - especially true of storing part jugs of fuel.
Anyway, obviously the stuff is very volitile and I don't personally like to or find it necessary to keep jugs stored for longer than I will use within a flying season when I have a Hobby Store only 10 minutes drive away that is open 6 days a week! Just myself being cautious!
SIDE NOTE: Even empty Jugs can be dangerous!
A few years ago, I remember going to our Club field on a Saturday for a "Spring clean up" day to get the grounds ready for the flying season. Lots of branches and twigs laying around were picked up and put into a pile and was set afire to dispose of along with other papers and debries. One of the guys threw an empty fuel jug, NOT capped, into the fire. Within about 4 seconds, the fuel vapors at the mouth of the jug ignited and the jug shot forward like a jet and landed about 25 feet away!
In hind sight it was a foolish thing to do but it was a lesson learned. Even empty jugs should be handled and stored carefully until safely & properly disposed of.
Sorry if this detracts from the main subject, just thought it might be pertenant to buying and storing quantities of fuel!
