I you check the CAP General Laboratory checklist, item GEN.72050 it gives
the amount of flammable liquid that can be stored.  You can store up to 1
gallon of Class I, II and IIIA liquids outside a fire-resistant cabinet for
each 100 square feet of space.  Up to 2 gallons if stored in safety cans or
safety cabinets.  If larger volumes are to be stored, they will be governed
by you state or local fire laws and regulations.  This could involve having
the liquids stored in a building that has a blast wall along with other
things such as a fire suppression system.  You would have to check with your
local fire marshal.  Hope this helps..good luck.
