Maybe it's just me but i like to have a special spot for the fumey flammables. Got so many gas cans, thinner rags, paint brushes etc, that i selected a spot away from the house, garage and woodshed (by the river) & made a brick "stuccoed stump" about 4 feet across, flopped a split metal lid on it and they all live there, metal or plastic, good bad or empty.

It soon turned into the yard's gas station so carries a grease gun, chain lube and 2-cycle oil too. When we lived in town, i'd store that stuff in a metal cabinet by the back fence. I've seen spontaneous combustion from a rag once and next time i wanna be further away. :)

Keep away from house I found out,I put a rag in wash room area while I went out to feed animals.It was used for tung oil on our kitchen cabinets.We just restored a 1700 farmhouse completely.I come in to find house full of smoke I thiought dryer was on fire.When I realized it was the rag I threw it outside it burst into flames.Oh my how close as old as this place is it would have just gone in seconds.
