On our property there are a number of old 55 gallon steel drums that just sort of came with the place.
One day my dad decided to take a few shots at one with his rifle. It started leaking everywhere. Turns out it was full of diesel fuel.

If that happened today they'd call it a hazmat spill, and you'd have a zillion guys in hazmat suits digging up the contaminated dirt. Then they'd send you a bill. So did you ever let him live it down? :D

Drums with lids aren't always empty.
He never went to look at them and try to move them?

Nah he didnt bother checking. My dads known for stuff like this and no I never let him live it down.
There was a forest fire here a few years ago and our property was the base camp for the fire fighters. The drums of diesel were what they left behind I guess.
He just put it on its side and put duct tape on the holes and left it.

At least you'll have a lifetime supply of emergency lantern oil.
