I am trying to avoid a 4 hour drive to get a new one and a burnout as much as possible.
I would think that a drum containing oil would not need a rust inhibitor, as the oil would displace any water that might attack the steel.
Of course, that doesn't stop the drum from having a liner, which I think it would need to have to avoid "flavoring" the oil.
But I'm really thinking that you should give me the location, and I will get them
I love a good burnout! Two is three times the fun.
