How long can you store kerosene?

Answer

One to three months is how long you can store kerosene. This is the longest that it should ever be stored. It should never be stored from one season to the next season. This also includes if it is in some kind of tank. If you allow kerosene to sit over a hot summer, the fuel breaks down and starts to absorb water. Sludge will also start to develop on the kerosene if it sits too long in the heat.

How long you can store kerosene can depend on the container you store it in and the conditions where you have that container. Depending on the container that you store it in the kerosene can last for almost forever with no problems. It is best to store it in 1 gallon tin containers because plastic can absorb light.
