Refrigerator in the Garage

Is it safe to store a working refrigerator in the garage where you also keep a riding lawn mower which sometimes holds up to 3 gal of gasoline?

The Money Pit Answer
First off, a standard refridgerator is not designed to work in the extreme fluctuations of temperature in the garage.  We know it's common practice to keep a spare fridge or freezer in the garage.  But it's very inefficient and stressful on the compressor.  It's much better to use one specifically designed for the garage - like the Chillerator… from Gladiator by Whirlpool.  I don't see any issue with the lawnmower in the same space.
