Maybe look at one of these:

Well, the object of the exercise was to NOT spend another $259, not to have a big empty tank sitting around the garage which I hope never to use, and to get some use out of the "tank" I bought ten years ago and have used exactly twice. (And which is conveniently stored in the basement of the RV, over in a storage lot.)

I know gas will go through styrofoam and some other plastics easily and decisively. Through my "waste" tank? I don't know. Next time I am there I will see if there's a flap or something I can hack off and drop it into a cup of gas and see if it dissolves. If not I might be tempted to think of this as an emergency back-up backup-plan. And then if I did so, to use all that gas within a few days. (Will there be something I can saw off? I'd be surprised; it's ruggedly constructed to be able to wheel 50 pounds of, uh, stuff along the ground, and it's pretty tightly made. )

Of course I'd have to pump it into the "non approved container" in the first place, which might get me caught. (Yes, we have a 100% gasoline station quite near the house, so that's what I would use.)
