    No to all. NOTE: 12(?) gal oil tanks?
    People may laugh at me, but that's ok. I laugh all the way to the bank.

    Never mind the "note". I looked it up. Just had never heard of such a small oil tank. Still "no".

    I cut oil tanks in half (required by the scrap yard) and use them to put small stuff in. Mine are 55 gal drums, though.
