Storage of fuels in oil barrels

So I found some oil barrels in really good to excellent condition that only contained full synthetic oils in them. I was curious how well the inside of the barrels needed to be cleaned out if they did NOT have any dirt or debris, and only just had oil residue in them. I've heard of people running WMO after they filtered the oil, etc and was thinking if there was only residue of new synthetic oil that I could just pour my diesel #2 and biodiesel in there for storage and not worry about it.

I'm thinking the oil barrels with oil inside would be a plus, as this would have no rust on the inside anywhere.


Thanks

Basically the question is will it hurt anything to store fuel in a container that still has new synthetic engine oil residue in? Will it hurt the engine if some of this residue is in the fuel? Like a very small percentage of residue? Or should I clean the barrel out? I was thinking if the oil is new, that it would probably only treat the injectors, if anything.


Thanks

I wouldnt have a problem using them. I think the main concern with storing in barrels is the environment outside or wherever they will be stored.

Just dont put wvo in there unless you clean out the motor oil. WVO+Motor oil = sludge

Now that you mention this, I wonder if wmo could be mixed with biodiesel?

Never tried that but you won't have any problems storing wvo, biodiesel or #2 in those drums unless you don't keep the bungs on tight.
