If your outdoor tools power up on gasoline, you can't get around storing at least one canister at home for the day your machine runs on empty. When you do store the flammable fuel in your garage, though, you must take a certain number of precautions to prevent combustion. Check with your local fire codes for caps on how much you can store in one location, but typically homeowners must split their supply into tightly-sealed containers up to 5 gallons each, which are to be stored out of direct sunlight, away from any source of heat (like the garage heater), and at least 50 feet away from ignition sources.
