gasoline in oil tote

I accidentally poured about a quart of gasoline in my VO tote (about 240 gallons).
IS there any danger of an explosion when I heat the oil in my Appleseed processor? I put about 1/4 cup of the oil (after mixing it in the tote) in my firepit, and could not light it with a match.

PS--I use a single 110V heating element--the lower one.

That is aprox 1 liter in 908 Liters.. Let it sit for a couple days and see if the petrol floats. Personally I wouldn't worry about it.

The petrol will likely boil out of solution when the reactor heats, so one would want to ensure that the reactor tank was correctly vented to carry the vapors to the outside of any building it might be in.
