How long will VP fuels last in one of your plastic fuel containers?

I would personally use it within 2 to 4 weeks.  A plastic container is designed for fuel transfer, not storage.  If you are going racing for a week or weekend, it's OK to put your fuel in the plastic containers.  I just recommend that when you get to your shop you put the fuel back in the drum and seal it.  This will keep it fresh.  Plastic is porous.  Even though the liquid fuel doesn't leak out, the light ends of the fuel can evaporate out of the plastic.  Plus the sun's UV rays can penetrate plastic and the lead may drop out.  Again, plastic containers are designed for transfer, not storage.

Use of Racing Fuel
in California
In California (as in other states),
leaded and unleaded racing fuel
is legal for use only in racing
vehicles, not on a public
highway. The only fuel sold by
VP Racing Fuels which is legal
for street use or non-competition
uses in the State of California is
Streetblaze 100 ethanol enriched
Phase III gasoline. With that one
exception, all of VP’s racing fuels
are only legal  for use in a
competition vehicle not used on
public highways. The racing fuels
may not be used for recreational
offroading or other
non-competition uses.
