Yes it is expensive but no having to worry about expiring dates.
There is no shelf life on it.
I have 55 gallons of it stored.
I fill my log splitter with it at the end of season.
I started prepping on the fifth anniversary of 9-11-2001.
I saw a video of people fleeing Manhattan Island on foot after the twin towers collapsed and all traffic was halted by gridlock. People were shuffling along on foot because they could not get through the clogged roads.
Then, out of nowhere, a guy comes riding by on a dual-sport motorcycle, all dressed up in a business suit. He just maneuvered around everything, people, cars, barricades, and kept on motoring past the hordes of people on foot, most carrying their shoes because their feet were hurting. I decided right then that I would be prepared for emergencies, from that point forward.
The movement started out as being called survivalist but a lot of people wanted to break from being called survivalist which were more gun oriented and just concentrate more on the basics, food, water and shelter. But the truth is that if you go to a prepper site or survival site there isn't any difference.
I am not sure how long Coleman fuel will store but I believe it will last longer then the cans they put it in. Last month I decided to test my lanterns and Coleman fuel I had stored, the can was marked 1994 upon opening it there wasn't any sediments and it was as clear as ever it worked perfectly, I wish I wouldn't have opened it now as I believe it just cost under 2 dollars a gallon back then.

it will last indefinitely. I spray the outside of the cans with wd40 before putting them on the shelf.
